I was editing the bios to make it so when I type a password on the keyboard it would turn on the computer. So, I saved it and exited the bios and then I didn't fell like waiting so I hit the power button on the computer since I was going out and then came back and it wouldn't turn on. I tried shorting the green (power-on) with a black(ground) on the 20 pin atx power supply connector and it turns on. I don't know what else to do. Can you guys please help me??

~Thanks in advanced.

Open up the case find the CMOS jumper or pull the "watch" battery and clear the CMOS. Reinstall the battery, or unjumper the CMOS and start over...

here are some are some solutions
1)Check the power cable and the psu on another system
2)Remove the second all memory (ram) except bank 1 or try other ram
3)Reset Bios/cmos
4)if all above fail take all the components of and test them on a running pc

When you shorted the CMOS with the jumper, did you count to 15 (slowly)? Also, when you pulled the battery, did you wait an hour or two?

Will it start if you manually jump the power on/off pins that you would have your case switch connected to?
If so, bad case switch!

If you can get it to start with the Green/Black ...
and you can get it to start by jumping the 2 pins for the On/Off it's probably the case switch itself thats bad!

It may sound like a stupid...
question but you didn't power off the system while the BIOS was saving did you ?

cheers

edit : Jacko2U that CORSAIR C2 RAM running at cas2 on 215MHz may be a bit much for it if your not using a divider.

Anyway. is there a way to start the computer with the power supply plugged into the mobo without the power switch to see if it's that.

make sure the power switch is on the right pins...just a suggestion


other than that, pull out everything to it's bare bones, read the manual and how to reset the CMOS and proceed exactly as it states. Try and boot from GFX, 1 stick of mem, cpu, cooler, and nothing else...you might have to put a jumper in a different position and hit the power switch, and then reset the jumper...all mobo's are different! Good Luck!
