    You need a board layout diagram with the specs for which pin out goes where becasue there is no standard. Sometimes they have a little printed shorthand right on the board you can make an educated guess at, otherwise you need the manual to look it up.

    Alternatively, if you're feeling adventurous you can take a flatblade screwdriver and carefully complete the curcuit across pins and see which two start the computer---those are obviously your power pins.
