    I need some help. When I setup the motherboard, a7v333, It doesn't powerup.
    I tried another mobo and no work either. However, I think it's just a simple
    setup problem.

    Someone help me setup the power connector switches correctly. Here's my
    pins, the number of pins,wires and labels for each one. The Asus
    Instructions arent clear enough for me.

    Computer Power Switch Connectors

    Reset SW: 2pin connector. BLUE-White
    H.D.D. LED: 2pin connector. RED-Blue
    Power SW: 2pin Connector. Yellow-White
    Power LED: 3pin connector. Black-Green-White

    (Wires read off as if connector side with label facing up)

    It would seem that you have the Power SW stuck on the wrong pins. Follow
    your mobo manual and you can`t go wrong.

    Looking at the diagram (System Panel Connectors)on page 44 of the Manual:

    White wires are usually the ground wires.

    Reset Sw connector goes to Reset SW pins on the board.
    Power SW connector goes to ATX Power SW pins on the board.
    Not quite sure about the power LED as they usually only have two wires, a
    white and a green as pins 1 and 3. Normally Power LED goes to Power LED pins
    on the board (+5V and PLED pins)

    The location of the HDD LED connector is shown on page 32 of the manual,
    titled IDE activity LED.

    The Power Switch is the only one needed to get the board to power up.

    The LEDs are just for status indications and the Reset Switch is really only
    needed if the machine is running DOS or it crashes in Windows and won't
    power down or restart using the power switch.

    Also depending on what version of the Users manual you have your IDE LED may be
    labeled incorrectly. My manual shows the + on the right side of the pins, but I
    did not see any flashing of this light so I reversed it and it began to
