Turn power on for a couple seconds,pull out cord to power supply.
Put Cosmos jumper back to correct position.Put all hardware back in and try to start it up.
its good till you have power on the MB with Cmos jumper in reset position...never do that
also should drain the caps by trying to start system after yanking AC cord out..to make sure no power on MB when reset Cmos
