So my old board died (I wasn't 100% sure, but it turns out I was right) I wanted to quickly boot test the replacement (open box deal), so I got a needle nose screwdriver, to close the circuit across the power switch pins...I've done this dozens of times in the past w/out incident. Well this time, sparks flew...I'm not positive, but it's very likely I shorted across the USB pins right next to the power switch pins. At any rate, the board would not power off when I closed the circuit again, and now won't power on...and that corner also has the very recognizable "burnt electronics" odor. sucks. ATX form factors have used this design for over a decade now (that is, the use of a temporary switch to close the circuit over those leads to power the board)...I've never heard of this happening before, but now that it has, it kind of seems like a weak design...anybody know of a work around?
