*emergency!!* computer wont start - Page 2

Sounds like a short. If your fans come on then die, that is a PSU problem, if not check the 24pin connector on your mobo to make sure the pins are straight.

So I have no clue wth happened. I took out everything from the case put it on a cardboard box and STILL wouldnt work. So, i decided that I would .. test each component individually. It was a completely weird thing that happened -- I put the 24pin and ATX connectors on the Mobo and fired it up. It worked. Ok, so it wasn't the mobo that was the problem. So, I add my 3870 w\\6pin and fire it up. Stutter. I was like ... omg, my GFX card is dead. NOOOOOO. So, I didn't give up, I kept messing around with it and SOMEHOW got the GFX card to work... don't even ask how I did it i just kept trying to power the sucker on.... but it turns out my GFX card somehow was the root cause of all this. Thx guys
