  1. Sounds to me like both Power and Reset wire connectors may be crossed... the Reset switch seems to be acting like the Power Switch... the two wires you pulled out may be the Reset wires.

    Most motherboard makers publish a PDF manual for each of their products. So you can find the manual for yours and see exactly how the front panel connectors are supposed to fit on the motherboard header. You can find the user manual searching for your motherboard's Make & Model followed by pdf manual or donloads
