Default Quick power swich question!

Hey, just a quick question and i'll be on my way.

I just upgraded some parts in my compaq desktop - got a new motherboard, video card, and audigy zs... I got it all put in the case (microatx, in case it matters...) and found out that the wire coming from the power switch/led's was not the same pin configuration as the one that is on my new motherboard. it's not even close. can i buy a new switch, or some kind of adapter or something?

thanks to anyone willing to help!

do you mean the switch is only on the psu, like old computers? it's a fairly new computer, it's got a button in front...the wire coming from it just doesnt fit onto the spot where it should on my new mb.
