From a Dimension 8300 it seems:

Before you start any use of this board I would advice you to check it for bad capacitors first:
http://www.badcaps.net as this one is a known contender :-(

Front panel, if not using the original casing: forget it. You may want to botch up a functioning header yourself if you like to solder:

look for the posting made by Ben Poehland.

Best of luck.

thank you so much for your help!

thanks for the advice and the links too.

i have never dealt with dell untill last night on the phone and i will never buy a dell computer and i would advise anyone to stay away from dell. they would not help at all without a tag #.

Asus and HP on the other hand will not only give tech support but also make documentation and downloads available. MSI is also very helpfull.

thanks again.

it's not just the buttons but also USB and audio and whatnot. a total of 34 pins that are not documented very well. Like I said, check out the posting in that thread about soldering things together...
