Having problems with your E-Machines T1842 PC Desktop ?

Computer comes on when plugged it. Power switch is useless.

\015 Caps lock and such lights on keyboard comes on for a second, but no video, no post (or at least I can't tell since there is no video). I am tempted to think somebody who had the machine before I got it may have monkeyed with the three pairs of wires that go from the front panel down to the motherboard and gotten them plugged into the wrong pins. Since all I should really need is the momentary power switch pushbutton itself, knowing which two of 8 pins on the motherboard it should go to would help me determine whether that's the problem or if something more serious has gone wrong. I'm skeptical about just randomly trying different pins without some sense of direction.\015

Answers :

It should be the pins on the bottom or out side of the mother board, closest to the edge and it goes on that row of pins only it doesnt lay across the two rows as long as you do that there wont be any shorts as these pins are for power and hardrive lights only theres no way to short out the motherboard by doing that.
