    Default weird problem with PC power button

    Hello all , i had messed around with my pc wires,replacing some things like disk drives and hard disks from my old pc to my new pc. the problem now is the power button does not "glow" any more when it is switched on. That is, even if my computer is starting up and working properly, I think I may have plugged in the power-on wires differenly when I put them back. Any idea if this can be fixed or not ?

    The PC i am referring to is an emachine t5088 model. Please tell me if you know the solution. Thanks.

    I think you already implied the solution yourself: plug the cables back into the right places. There should be at lease one cable coming from the front panel of the computer. Plug it into the correct pins on the motherboard. The labels are different on every motherboard, but look for something like "Front Panel" or "F Panel" if it's a cable with lots of wires. If it's just a pair of wires specifically for the power indicator light, maybe you're looking for "PWR LED" or something. You'll have to look yourself, probably towards the front or bottom edge of the motherboard. Or see your manual.

    Why would you remove the front panel connectors just to replace disc drives?

    Anyway, assuming it's not labeled, the connector for the power LED (PWR_LED) is a three pin width connector with usually only two wires coming from it. The power LED jumpers are usually right next to the power switch jumpers.
    N.B. the LEDs must be connected with the right polarity to work, so you might want to try flipping the connector around. If the connector has text written on it, this should be facing outwards.
