about a week ago i was listening to my music and decided to switch speakers. while the computer was on i plugged them in like every other time. about 5 mins later my computer restarted i thought nothin of it since it does that every once in a while i walked away during the reboot and heard it log on to my profile when i came back into the room it was off i tried turning it on and nothing happens. i've tried pretty much everything from reseating the memory to removing the battery. my first guess was a bad power supply i replaced it and i noticed now when i turn the power supply from on to off, the fan spins. the other weird thing is i borrowed at tester and when i plug the 20 pin into it, and the 12v into the mobo, the system fan spins.
Win XP SP2 512 PC 3200 160gb maxtor gigabyte GA-K8NS AMD 64 3000+ SOCKET 754
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You shorted your motherboard...were you using onboard sound?
And why swtich speakers? thats random.
yes i do have onboard sound and i switched from my large speakers (600 watts each) to my desktop speakers (night time!) does that mean i need a new mobo? thanx for ur help
