|I was putting my new case's F_PANEL pins on the |
motherboard. I was working on carpet, so i guess I forgot to
ground myself after moving around. After turning the computer
on, I hold the case to lift it up and I get this surge of static
electricity (made a popping sound from what I remember. I
immediately switch my PSU off, no smoke or anything
afterwards. I turn it on again and I get no response on the
monitor, the LED lights turn on, case fans and CPU fan turns
on. Also, it won't turn OFF when i hold the power button, but it
will turn ON. I have to use the PSU's switch to turn it off.
I bought a new processor that just arrived and I stuck that in
there, cleared CMOS and removed battery, no dice. It does
that same thing with my other processor so I'm guessing the
motherboard may really be the problem.
