So... You know the button which turns on your computer. I have 2 buttons my CoolerMaster Elite 430 ATX-kotelo, musta | 59.00e - Jimms.fi you can see them in the left side. And of those comes 5 cables. 3 cables are 2 pin and the last 2 cables are 1 pin. So can you show from my motherboard there i plug them??

Looks like they should go here,

There should be labels around the pin group identifying which is which, then it is just a matter of matching up the connectors from the front panel (they should also be labeled).

Here is the picture after all hard work PSU  upgrade for Ati Radeon HD3850-valokuva0254.jpg

So can you show with paint or somehow where i put each wire? I appreciate your all help!

And btw you said i should plug in the last 4 pins in the 24 pin cable to the white slot...I don't think the 4 ''add'' pins gonna reach there

The 4 pin block that splits off the 20+4 pin ATX power connector DOES NOT go there. It's not used at all.

There's a separate 12V supply for the CPU. For the Corsair CX600, it's a 4+4 pin connector that can either be used as an 8 pin (on newer motherboards) or split to give you the 4 pin one. USE THAT.

I haven't found any service manual online for the Acer X1301. On standard ATX motherboards, the switches and indicator lines all go to a single block. If you're lucky, what goes where will be printed on the motherboard. (It'll be quite small printing.)

What the f*** happened?! When i did those + i only put 2x 1 pin leds on the motherboard suddenly the computer start running and there was fffff much smoke coming out of my motherboard hard drive cable......!?!?!? What did i do wrong? And now when i put all pieces back to normal in this old case, my cpu fan starts running without turning computer on

Please rewrite that so we have half a chance of understanding what you did.

What you have written is impenetrable. What you may have done is unknown.

According to the picture in your post #15, the green and white connectors are for the power LED on the front of the case.

You connected the green and white wires to 2 pins on the motherboard.

Question: why did you choose those particular pins on the motherboard rather than some other 2 pins? Did you have a reason or did you just choose 2 random pins?
