it could be something as simple the pin connector wire being pulled off while you were cleaning up the cables . with things like this always start with the simplest solution.
Thanks for the Shadow, but the thing is that i turned on my PC and the leds blinked and everything shutted down, do you think that means something fried or just loose connectors and not sufficient power? Like i said earlier, my father was able to jumpstart the motherboard by putting in a metal clip into the main power connector from the psu to the motherboard but only the fans spun and leds turned on and no post. Does that indicate that i haven't fried anything though??

Thanks, but before i do anything , did you read my edited post on the album? I may of said something important there.


Here is what im going to do once you guys say i should do it or not. Im about to plug a 6 +2 pin cable into the 8 pin cable, i cant find the 8pin only cable and then another 6+2 pin cable into the right 6 pin connector on the graphics card with 2 pins left disconnected. Both cables will plug directly into the PSU. Is this correct?
