I'm attempting to upgrade my Gateway SX2800-01 into a mid-tower case (Thermaltake V3) with a new power supply. The manual for the computer didn't come with a diagram or anything for the motherboard and I can't find one online anywhere. I can't for the life of me figure out how to connect the power LED, power switch, reset switch, and HDD LED connectors from the case to the motherboard. The power LED is 3-pin and that doesn't make a lot of sense either.

look at you current setup. follow the wires to the switches and see where they end up

I stupidly took out the mobo before writing down where the switch connectors went. I'm thinking now that I have them in the right place but the computer still isn't turning on. I can hear power coming from the PSU but nothing is happening.

Power pins are different, and easy.Worry about your connecting of buttons and motherboards.Usually they have the same format for each company.So look up how to plug in your companys name board to front buttons
