Entirely possible. Or the extender wasn't wired completely (cheap). Glad you figured it out though.

hopefully that is what the problem was. doesnt make any sense why it would have an extender in the first place. the psu is never more than like 4 inches from the mobo 24pin so why would you need a 3 inch extender lol. well thank you everyone for your help. if anything else happens ill come back and try to pin point the problem more.

Ok well it's not working again. I'm gonna go buy a new mobo today that is the last thing I can think of that could be wrong. I'm gonna try and get the same brand and chipset so hopefully I don't have to reinstall windows. If I do I'll be fudged because I couldn't back up anything up and also don't have any windows 7 DVDs. Wish me luck. Doing major surgery today
