I think YOU need to understand the simplicity of the power & reset switch. There's very little that can go wrong with them. As Tubesandwires explained, it's just a "momentary" switch. You press the button, the circuit closes, the power supply receives the "power-on" signal & it fires up. As soon as you release the button, that's it...it's completely out of the mix & has NO bearing on the system WHATSOEVER until it is pressed again. The reset switch works exactly the same way.
Try switching them back again.

Don't forget the CPU, motherboard, RAM, sound, network, fans, keyboard, mouse, etc. Or didn't you realize that they require power too? ;-)
