Check Power Switch Connection on Motherboard
by: William C

Make sure the power switch is properly connected to the motherboard terminals. Identify the proper pins (should be 2 pins identified as PWR_SW) in the motherboard front panel connections diagram) and temporarily short out with the tip of a small flat screw driver. If this does not start the computer, you may have a problem with the motherboard or power supply.
