**** now its doing it again! but now ive narrowed it down to being the result of a bad
24pin connector. now its just turning off randomly like when i tried to press the volume - button it just turned off. then to turn it back on i have to touch the wires on the 24pin connector. i've tried unplugging and plugging it back in and it doesnt seem to work.

I think the wires in the 24pin connector arent completly touching the metal on the 24pins on the mobo and whenever i touch it it gives it enough connection to turn back on. so now that ive figured out the problem, what do i do?
