the black wire has broken off of my on/off switch. It appears to need soldered back on.

I need to know which contact the black wire should be soldered.

As in from the front panel switch? If so you can test which pin by simply touching the wire to a pin and pressing the power button and see if the computer turns on; the switch is simple momentary switch that creates a closed circuit when pressed and opens when released. The attached wire is on the middle pin then? The black wire should go on either side of it in that same row, might even work on the outside pins of the other row of pins too. You may even be able to see where it was soldered on before if you look closely at the pins.
