OK today I spent six hours redoing my cable management and now when I try to turn the computer on it won't do anything. The weird thing is that.... When I plug my power supply to the wall and flip the on switch, it automatically comes on and then shuts down within 5 seconds. However, when I try to turn it on manually by pressing the power button or reset button nothing happens... What's going on, everything appears to be plugged in correctly. PLEASE help.

I will also be on aim if you wish to contact me via im.
:confused:

Ok, forget this post. The power SW pins were in the wrong position, fixed the pin headings...Now it's going awesome. WOOOT! Thought I might have shorted something.
