But the red/green frag is a different issue. I know when I received your motherboard, a few of the chip wires had come loose from the LPC points (cold solder joints). I re-soldered the LPC wires but didn't think to check the actual connections to the chip itself. Double-check those wires and make sure nothing came loose.
The switch that you had installed was a SPST switch. Where the wires connect, you'll see a center post and a post on one side. On the other side of center is a blank spot. When the toggle is pointing toward the blank spot, then your chip is enabled.
It's something simple like a loose wire; your mobo worked fine here. Let me know if I can help.

So follow the loose wire to the mobo. To the left or right of that wire will be one that is connected properly. Follow it to the chip, so to the left or the right of the "proper" point on the chip is where you should re-attach the loose wire.

i really dont see a pattern, so far ive figured out 4 wires (im pretty sure). and this is with the chip sitting on the mobo as usuall like in the pics.
numbers are corresponding wires..
