I've just set up a new gaming rig, specs below. While fiddling with the sata cables (there isn't much space), I accidentally pulled out the power switch cable. The computer works fine, the power switch does not. It will reset, however to power on I must use the button on the MB. Have I damaged the cable beyond repair?
MB: Z77 Oc formula
Case: antec 900
will provide more details if necessary
There was no response when shorted with a flat head screwdriver.
Hmmm, so when you shorted the pins on the MB nothing happened? If that is the case then I think the pin mounting on the MB has become damaged, do the pins have any movement on the MB, they should be solid.
