    I need some help. I have a desktop PC, and an ASUS motherboard with the newest BIOS installed. I need to turn off the LED on the front which turns on when the PC is on. It's not needed, plus it ruins my sneaky sneaky night stuff :rolleyes:. I can specify anything you need.

    I just used electrical tape over mine. Got sick of trying to find which one to break. :)

    Hah, I've actually found all the wires I need to disconnect, but the problem is that I can't plug it off :p

    Exact model of the motherboard? Which computer cabinet do you use?
    Also which wires are you talking about?? Did you find the ends that connect to the motherboard or the ones on the back of the LED on the cabinet front panel?
