:bang head: I went to install my soundcard and killed the power but i forgot to hit the power button to completely drain the PSU. well there was enough juice to cause an arc or something because when i removed the old soundcard BEEP there goes the board and now i have no bios or posting. So do you guys think its the mobo or somehow i killed something else?

Poor luck, you have my sympathies. Im a lucky person. The other day I was putting the power LED on in my 3rd pc with it on(too lazy to read the words) and when I plugged it in electricity spyder-webbed across like 10 jumpers and the pc shut off. This is a nice pc too. Anyway I unplugged it and reset the cmos and it works fine. :cool:
