Question about Computers & Internet

6 7 8 9
Usually the power switch connects to pins # 3 & 4 on my diagram above. You can test this out by shorting those two pins with a screwdriver and see if your computer powers up. If not, try shorting the other sets of pins, 1-2, 6-7, 8-9.
Thanks and please remember to rate as fixya.

Tips for a great answer:
Feb 19, 2016 | Computers & Internet
test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE SATA
MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty if its a flat ribbon 40pin ide
this will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure dust free connections
a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have a finishing point so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure the CPU has a secure dust free seating with thermal paste
make sure your ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
hope this helps
