Alright so I have connected the POWERSW to the ones I have touched with the screw driver and the button did not turn it on.

I have tried reversing, and tried the other POWERSW that I have and still nothing, but still remains to turn on with the screwdriver.

Im very confused as to whats next

Check if there is some obstruction in the connector, like dust... Or you can borrow a switch from someone to see if it works.
It might even be a problem with the physical button. Try holding the switch down firmly.(works on mine. :P)

Does anyone have any ideas? Can you just buy a new power switch? This is kinda annoying, would I have to startup my PC via a screwdriver everytime? Any suggestions welcome!

Gotta be the switch. All a switch does is short the same two prongs you did with the scewdriver. You can get replacement switches for a couple bucks. They are called 'momentary pc power switches'.

Now when I touch the spot with a screwdriver it doesnt turn on..

Do you think by turning it on with the screwdriver so much and then turning off by disconnecting the plug I did something ?

When you power'd off your computer did u flip the psu switch to do so? is it in the correct position now?

Really doubt u harmed anything, all the pins are led activity and a power/reset switch.
