Default ASRock Z77 Extreme4 won't power on after CMOS clear

As stated above. PSU was tested and works fine. Everything was working fine until I cleared the CMOS following the instructions in the manual. Everythng is connected correctly and the jumper is in the right place. Removing the batter did not help either. System shows no signs of life. Nothing happens when power is pressed. Mouse and keyboard light up momentarily when power cable is plugged in.
Any ideas?

I suggest you try the system outside of your case to rule out shorting issues. Disassemble and reassemble with the mobo on its box.

Okay got it, The CMOS reset button was stuck. Had to wiggle it with a screwdriver for it to go back to the released position. Everything works fine now. Thanks!
