    The connectors that connect leds to mobo are not very secure. Check to make sure that the wire hasn't pulled out of them. Also, double check the positions, and test some other positions.

    You run the stock LEDs or have you changed them?

    If the system was setup and left alone (nothing changed) and they went from working to not working. You have pulled the LEDs and tested them to find them good. Then it's obvious that the boards circuitry for those two circuits isn't in working order. Possibly the use of LEDs that required more than the circuit could handle over time.. who knows .

    But generally the problem is the connector being on the wrong way. I know I pull my hardware down more often than most, half the time I don't pay attention to the wiring and simply change it if I put them on backwards.
