so i just bought a GeForce6100SM-M motherboard. I put it in the case and hooked everything up except for the power switch LD and the actual switch. along with some USB hookups, which aren't a big deal cuz the usb's are broken on the case, and the reset button. the motherboard itself doesn't seem to have great labels on it so i have no idea where to hook them up and i don't want to fry my board already.. here's a link from newegg that has some pictures if you want to have a closer look..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813135039

i'd appreciate any help on this

thanks guys

No, the link is bad- you are right. And that's an ECS board.

i've got wires that are labeled Power Led (i'm assuming thats the green light in the front of my computer, Reset sw (which i'm also assuming is the reset switch), speaker, Power SW, H.D.D. LED and then i have some black wires that are labeled ear L, Ear R, MIC GND, GND, Mic Data on one set of wires, and then on the othe rblack wires i have usb -1, usb +1, usb -2, usb +2, vcc 2, gnd 1, vcc 1, shield, and gdn 2.

these are the only things that aren't hooked to the mobo cuz i have no idea where they go.. everything else is setup..
also, this is the first motherboard i've ever installed.. just some knowledge
