My computer won't turn on. When I press the power button, nothing happens. But when I press the reset button, the LED that is on the power button turns on and the whole computer is turned on. I'm very confused and would like to fix this, my case is an NZXT H440.

are you sure you connected the front header panel properly? kind of sounds like your wired the reset switch into the power switches port

You have the reset switch connected to the power swith pins on the motherboard.
If the computer resets when you press the power button (when it is on) you need to change the
connectors round. Or you could swap the labels on the switches ;#}
