Cant power my pc up - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
ok so i have a BIG problem now i was able to start it like i did back in the day when i didnt know where to plug the cables ( yes im incredible stupid and i tend to go in and do fixer uppers) any how i use a screw driver and just kind of molest all the pins till i cause a short and the computer starts... now i dont want to do this every time i turn the computer on. So is there any other way to initiate the computer besides those freaking pins? any one?

If you have your manual it should tell you which pins on the front header that are for on and off.

Yeah, You can wire up the switch thats on the front panel, prod around until you find the two that start it up, MARK them asap, and than put the power switch on there = no more using a screw driver

/sorry to hijack this thread.

most motherboards also have a bios setting that automatically turn them on after a power failure. This way you can use the switch on the back of the computer to turn it on. I have an arcade machine and a switched outlet. When I turn the switch on, it turns on my pc.

No the pc was not powering up, but evidently it did when I pulled the video card.
The motherboard is fairly new, I replaced it about 6 months ago with a MSI KT3 Ultra 2. The new video card I put in is a PNY 64 mb. There is no evidence of any distress to the motherboard. There are no damaged capacitors or dark spots on the motherboard.
