    HDDLED, PWRSW,RESETSW,
    Also 1Ground , 1+D , 1_D , 1VCC
    2Ground , 2+D , 2_D , 2VCC

    Sorry, but downloading an exe for a manual seems a little bit too fishy, let it be MSI's official site or not...
    If you just could confirm it clean with, say, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Kaspersky Online scan or some other reputable scans...

    But anyways, looks like a pretty basic solution... Here's a pic, I hope it's of the motherboard you have, http://www.ruby-electronics.com/images/mb-ms-6547-010-b.jpg in the lower left there are four series of pins, just take a magnifier and see what they say, compare to your wires' names and connect accordingly.

    1Ground , 1+D , 1_D , 1VCC 2Ground , 2+D , 2_D , 2VCC sounds like a USB connector, probably for a front panel-mounted pair.

    I tried to attach the file but I guess it's too big .

    I don't know how to get the manual to you. I did download it and had no trouble.
    It is a PDF file and it's around 6 MB.
    Oh well thanks anyway

    Hmh. Self-extracting archive for a 7.5 MB file? Whatever.

    See page 32. JFP1:
    HDLED, PWRSW, RESETSW (RST_SW) (the connector are probably two-wire ones, black is negative (-) but if there's no black, then the colored one (red over any other color) is positive (+) (For the switches the polarity makes zero difference, though. Only the LED will not work if you plug it incorrectly.)

    Page 35. JUSB1/2 (you can use either, let's say 1 just for giggles):
    Wait a sec... :eek:
    Okay, so:
    1Ground(pin 7, preferably) and 2Ground (pin 8, preferably) to the GNDs.
    1+D to USBP0+ (pin 5), 1_D to USBP0- (pin 3), 1VCC to USBPWR (pin 1)
    2+D to USBP1+ (pin 6), 2_D to USBP1- (pin 4), 2VCC to USBPWR (pin 2)

    These should work.

    thanks for all the help !
    I was able to hook up the power and reset and 1 set of usb's and It turns on, the cpu and case fans come on but I get nothing on the screen.I have another CPU (socket 478 Celeron 2.93gig) and I will try that but I am not going to spend much more time with it.
    None of you think it's worth messing with ,
    Sorry I can't afford the latest and greatest machine.
    I will try not to bother any of you with and OLD tech questions

    Hey! Some of us are OLD techs! We love the old tech questions! ;-)

    I've got several computers in my "lab". Not one of them has a dual core (or better) CPU and not a SATA drive in the bunch. I completely understand not being able to afford the newest stuff, especially if what you have suits your needs!

    Both the front panel header and the USB header and mostly likely 9 pin headers. On each header there will be 5 pins on one side and 4 pins on the other. These are standard pinouts for both the front panel and USB.

    On the front panel header the side with 5 pins is numbered like this. Pin #1, #3, #5, #7 and #9. Pins #1 and #3 and HDD LED, Pins #5 and #7 are Reset. Pin #9 is empty.

    On the other side is pins #2, #4, #6 and #8 then a missing pin. Pins #2 and #4 are Power LED, Pins #6 and #8 are the Power Switch.

    On the USB header the side with 5 pins is numbered like this. Pin #1, #3, #5, #7 and #9.
    Pin #1 is Vcc 1, Pin #3 is D- 1, Pin #5 is D+ 1, Pin #7 is Ground 1 Pin #9 is empty.

    On the other side is pins #2, #4, #6 and #8 then a missing pin.
    Pin #2 is Vcc 2, Pin #4 is D- 2, Pin #6 is D+ 2, Pin #8 is Ground 2

    In USB keep the connectors marked as 1 on 1 side and connectors marked as 2 on the other side.
