    open it up & trace the wire(s) to those locations to see if disconnected. also possible the led(s) also burnt out tho haven't seen that yet.

    It is probably a fault with the wiring. This diagram was on your PC's motherboard spec page, and I've circled where you should find the other end of the LED wire:

    It'll look something like this:
