... i must have had a surge or somthing last night when i was sleeping. when i woke up, all three lights on the front of my pc were on and my keyboard was dead.. i often have problems with my logitech cordless gear failing. it has happaned on my kt 400 and my nforce 2...

but anyway. machine wouldnt boot again =| I was like wtf. went to work. came home and it still wouldnt boot. so i did the usual. strip it all down. trouble shoot, clear cmos bleh bleh. wouldnt boot.

now. i got it booted. i was happy so assembled my pc again. wouldnt boot

unplug all atx connectors except power... it boots o_O plug them in one by one. it boots, UNTILL i get to to the reset button?
sure enough, plugging and unplugging is the difference of a boot or no boot.

What the hell? im getting really close to wanting to rma this board. or getting a mac. ha ha
