I recently switched cases on my computer I originally had a slim computer and my normal sized computer broke down so I wanted more room in my slim computer so i moved the mother board and everything over. I plugged everything in the exact same way except I did not attach the mother board to the case cause the screws did not fit right it starts up when i hit the power button everything is running perfectly fine im getting a new graphics card here soon in case that is the problem but everything seems to be running perfectly fine i don't know what would cause it any help is appreciated

Do you have another pci lane you can put the graphics card in?

No I do not its a low profile motherboard

Well at this point it could be 1 of two things. A faulty motherboard or graphics card. Does the motherboard have on board graphics or do you have a extra graphics card from your old computer?

Heres the thing. Sitting the mobo on the standoffs or not rearranging them to properly fit the holes on the board means you could have a standoff touching a area on the back of the mobo causing a short.

Pull the mobo out and see if you can change the standoffs around to match the mobos layout. If not, you need a new case.

oh forgot about that the screws ground the motherboard to the case try running the machine like a testbed with the componets out of the case and see if it works

Okay so I tried to move it around and made sure there was nothing there to short it out and it still won't work any other ideas
