Hello,
I PUSHED THE POWER BUTTON ON MY SYSTEM, CHANGED MY MIND AND ABOUT TEN SECONDS AFTER THE FIRST PUSH, I DECIDED TO FORCE THE SYSTEM OFF SO I PUSHED AND HELD THE POWER BUTTON UNTIL THE SYSTEM SHUT OFF. THE NEXT DAY, I PUSHED THE POWER BUTTON AND NOTHING HAPPENED, NOW NOTHING IS HAPPENNING WHEN I PUSH THE POWER BUTTON. THE LLIGHT ON THE MOBO IS ON BUT NOTHING ELSE. I CHANGED OUT THE HDD, AND STILL NOTHING, I CHANGED OUT THE PSU, AND STILL NOTHING, I DON'T THINK IT IS THE POWER BUTTON ITSELF, ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Never had this problem unless you conected the powerbutton pin wrong onto the motherboard.

You might just want to try to:

"Short the 2 pins momentarily that you connect the power button to.
Dont short anything else!"

Please go to the link above^ & try their ideas.

did it work before ? if it did.....have you moved the computer.
if the answer is yes and no in that order you need a new power supply

if answers are no and no you need you look inside at the connections to your motherboard.

also the same for no and yes in that order

Check the switch with a multimeter. Then try shorting the pins.

I won't even mention the capslock, newcomer or not....
