Recently my pc won't turn on when I hit the button. After messing with it over the past couple days here is what I've determined is working...
ram is fine and in the right slot
cpu is fine
vid card is fine
psu is working properly
switch on the case works and pins it connects to are fine
I can even manually jump the computer to get it to startup and everything runs fine. But, when I press the switch on the pc there is some step in between the connection being sent from the switch to the board that stops it from powering up. Any and all help is appreciated!
Ps. I've already tried resetting the cmos, didn't work.

Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...) http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI/e2024_a8n-sli.pdf
You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:
1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply) 2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply) 3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors. 3) hard drives (SATA or IDE) 4) USB front panel ports 5) Audio front panel ports 6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).
You can research *********** board and drivers at ASUS.com.
You may find a new BIOS update which controls the fan speeds and temp.
If not, you can find plenty of frreware which will handle *********** board.
It sounds like the front panel wire has either come loose from the motherboard or is plugged into the wrong spot. Recheck the motherboard to see if the wires are in the right place & not loose. Hope this helps.
Yes, you do. Your board was built with the idea to use 2 graphic boards to get great video
