If you don't get any diagrams to work with, just try each one until all the case lights and power switch work. They're all low voltage, so as long as you use the right cluster of pins (do not use the usb pins), then it won't hurt anything if you get them wrong the first time.

This is a Gateway only product. If they will not give you a layout diagram or manual for the thing you may be out of luck. If I were you, I would think about replacing it. You have a pretty much locked bios and the board does not overclock well. Your new memory will probably run at the lowest speed as these type of boards tend to default there. You are using an SSD and are you sure the board supports it (optimally?)? Here are some to look at (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...). I do think you will be happier and have a better system by replacing the MB.
