Question about A-Top Alien Gaming ATX Case
Further to the reply, can you please inform me to whether the motherboard could be ruined from the short? if I put washers in between the motherboard and case, is there any chance of the motherboard working after it has shorted.
Every time i turn on my computer it keep telling me that it have no service and the screen shuts off

Actualy I have a raidmax smildon case, with the same problem. I thought it was a motherboard issue, as I plugged in my headphones and the PC powered down. The power supply was sending power to the motherboard, I got an RMA for the motherboard, assuming it had shorted, purchased a MSI K9A2 platinum and the box still wouldn't power on, luckily the new motherboard had a power and a reset button on the board. I hit the power button and voila, power. So all signs point to crappy switch. Contacting Raidmax is my next step.

It's a grounding issue. quiet common for antec chassis. what i would recommend is to take the system (motherboard, video card, power supply..etc) out of the antec chassis and run it to see if it boots up okay. when you are putting everything back into the chassis, make sure the standoffs are where they are supposed to be. if not, the chassis might not be grounded properly, get them to replace the chassis if you can find their support.

It's not a short in that sense. It's just preventing thee motherboard from starting. I had the same issue a long time ago when building a pc. Once it's seated properly, it should turn on...unless like I said previously, there is something wrong with motherboard all together.

Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail
check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat
Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.
Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.
hope this helps

First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:
Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.
In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".
Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".
Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.
for xp or earlier
click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts
if you need more help with this or if i have missed the problem post a reply
hope it helps
