Connecting the power button
I am building my first PC, I have a P23G motherboard and a X-Qpack box (Micro ATX). Heres the problem, the wire coming out for the power button and the wires for the LEDS, have a Mini connector with only 2 sockets. There are no ports on my motherboard for the 2 socket Mini Connector. I also have checked the motherboard documentation (PC CHIPS documentation is notorious for sucking) and it does not show anywhere to plug in the front LEDS & power switch. Also on the mother board there are pins labeled panel 1 that is arranged like this * * * *
* * * * *
My panel connector sockets are arranged like that but backwards. So it will not plug in there, but it will fit into the USB 2 pins. I don't know if anyone has seen this before and if there is a way to work around this with adapters etc.... I tried turning it on from the switch on the power supply, but it is as dead as a door nail, but I'm assuming this is because the power button is not plugged in. I have emailed tech support, but have not gotten a reply yet and being a help desk coordinator myself I know there are people who just care about meeting their quota rather than giving the best solution for the customer, so I don't know if I am going to get a good response.
