I was trying to plug in a cable to the back of the computer and one of the slot shields in the back of the computer fell onto my video card because it was loose.
Nothing happened and the computer was on. I opened my side panel and as i was about to take off the metal i pushed it against the motherboard and the computer just instantly turned off. So i tried over and over again but could not re power it. I even swapped the power supply and no luck.
So i disassembled every component (video card, ram cpu)
When I took out the main atx power i realized that if i keep it halfway in/out the red lights on the mobo start flashing on and off quickly.
I will be able to get a new board but i am just concerned about the cpu ram and video card
Is it likely it would have damaged it?
