After more experiments, i found that my computer would turn on as long as the power button is held down during the fraction of a second after the reset button is pushed and then released (keep in mind that it is still plugged into the clear cmos jumper). When i turn it on like that, it gets past the bios screen that shows a post error that says "cmos checksum error - defaults loaded" even though it doesnt actually load the defaults. Then it restarts, and it gets past the bios screen and boots just fine. I really don't understand why a bluescreen would do that, but does anyone know how to get it back to the way it used to be?
Please try to unplug the powerbutton from the motherboard, then try and connect the reset button to the powerswitch pins.
I once experienced that a power button hung up, in the sence that it would not release after the push, and the computer turned itself off after 5 seconds upon boot (After I hit the powerswitch) Connecting the reset switch and using it as a powerbutton worked.Edited by The Avenger - 4/6/12 at 9:53am
