LOL this is a very detailed post. I feel I am being attacked.
ANyway, I will explain myself. I DID take pictures of the bottom of my shutdown but the problem is that my dig camera CF card cannot be read from winXP (incompatible driver) Sooooooooo you have to wait till I use a diff machine to read the file and then upload somewhere.
With that said....about the picture
RED WIRE ON TOP: that's the Vacc (connected to remote-on from my car stereo)
BLACK AND YELLOW on the left: Black is ground and Yellow is 12V from battery.
Actually there is 4 wires...Yellow ( can't see in this pic), 2 black and a red.
Yellow: is 12V to my ATX PSU.
Black: ( next to yellow) is the Ground.
Black: ( next to red) this is the ATX power on + wire ( in my computer it is 5V, others could be 3.3V) WHen this is connected to ground it sends the power on/off signal.
Red: this is 5V from my ATX PSU to power my 40X4 LCD.
2 circled black things: the 2 transistors.
the orange and white wires:
this is connected to a momentary switch and sends the shutdown without delay signal to the shutdown controoler.
the yellow and white wires: gives me the +5V and Ground to power my 40X4 LCD.
If you are still confused I might put a parts diagram together as well for the electronically challenged
