    I have no idea what the above circled is called, but is it possible to remove it? [that's not the case I have, just found a random case on Newegg]

    I got a new motherboard and it came with one of those panel things. I'm trying to remove the one that's currently on my case and replace it with the new panel they provided. (so the motherboard will actually fit)

    It's called an I/O shield.
    Just push it in towards the inside of the case and it should pop out.

    Sometimes prebuilt machines such as HP have those built into the case, cannot be removed. If that's the case with yours then you will either need to cut it out or buy a new case.

    brought a new mobo. the connectors attached to the inside of the case that connects to the mobo is not connected correctly.

    the motherboard doesn't start.

    The only button that matters is the ON button and it's NOT sensitive to positive or negative...all it does is bridge the two pins momentarily.

    Make sure you have it on the right pins.

    the connectors have a postive and a negative, and you are suppose to connect it correctly for the motherboard to start. they are plugged into the right area of the mobo.

    What motherboard is this?

    I've never seen one that has a polarized on button.

    Edit:
    Try this...
    Remove the switch wiring altogether.
    Using a screwdriver, touch the two pins that the on switch is supposed to connect.
    Doesn't have to be long...the board should fire up and post.

    If it doesn't, you have another problem going on.
