Computer is a Dell Inspiron 530S with a Foxconn G33M02 Micro ATX Motherboard.
The switch is a single block in the front of the machine along with audio and usb within. They all have their own connector blocks on the M'board.
My question is: There is a 5 pin connector for jumpers on the power block that takes the power to the start button, led, and I don't know what else(no reset).
Does anyone know what set of pins on the block or wire color that the start button uses, as I need to jump it for starting the machine...and don't want to cause any other problems. Or is their an optional way to do this. Thanks.
Here is a diagram of someone in the same situation. It is a pretty standard pinout. To start the computer, no other wires need be present on this particular conector, and you momentarily short out with a spare hard drive jumper the power button pins labelled #6 and #8. I doubt that someone made a molex with that particular pinout available, but if you found a decent shop they could probably assemble one from an old junker unit.
