Hi Ralph:

Since the 486 motherboard has got no marks by the sockets for (power, hard disk, speek, reset and turbo) indicators (lighters), I got no idea which plug (jumper) for which sockets.

I think those very close to the front must be the sockets I want...CAN I JUST TRY? NO DANGER?

Regards.

username1,
I'm glad you got the hard drive going!
Generally the speaker connector is a 4-pin header by itself.  The power LED and keylock usually will be a 5-pin header with the second wire sometimes omitted on the plug.
Without documentation, it's going to be difficult to find the Reset, HDD LED, Turbo LED, and Turbo Switch as they are all 2-pin headers.
If the LEDs are connected backwards, they just won't light up.  I wouldn't try to connect the reset or turbo switch until last, because you may short the power supply if connected improperly.
I hope this helps.
Ralph
