It's been a while I have posted here ... over two years, so I thought I would login today to tell a story.

I was trying to figure out why a system my wife was using would not post.
Power button did nothing and the system would only turn on briefly and turn off again after a few secs.
I swapped the power supply 1st, nothing. Tried a known to work video card ...nothing. Cleared the bios on the MB, did nothing. Checked the memory swapped them out, nothing.

I put the system in my workshop and left it there for a few weeks and decided to try again yesterday.
Turns out the power switch on the case was shorted out.
I used the reset switch instead and it's fixed :clap:

here's to simple problems with simple fixes. this is why it's always good to pull it out of the case and try it on the box
