    Alright sorry, the header cable Sorry .. Im a noob

    So not a jumper, the cable. I have the "switch" connected to the "panel" connectors on the mobo, or J8 to pin 6 and pin 8 on the mobo, or if you touch that cable to the reset on the mobo (pin 5 +7) the computer will start

    Ok, so now if you have that cable connected as you do from J8 to the 6/8 on the mobo, and then you manually short J9 on the M2, what happens?

    I have not yet done that, what should that prove? As J9 is just an extension of J8. Should the computer not work as I have it setup? I dont see why the computer will only stay on when that header cable is removed from the mobo. If its plugged in, the computer wont do anything, if its just touched to get it started and then removed its fine

    And thank you for all the responeses!!!

    It has to do with how the M2 sends the short. I have explained this many times in other threads.

    Basically electronics can not short anything together. That is what the motherboard needs though. It needs a short. So what it does is ground one of the pins. If that calbe is flipped, then it is grounding hte wrong thing. If that cable is constantly sending out a ground signal then something is seriously screwed up.

    If you manually short J9, then you can figure out what is causing problems. From what you describe it cannot be. There is something big here you are missing.

    Ok Im not with the computer at the moment so I cant try the J9 short. I will do it first thing in the morning. Is there anything else you can recommend to do? SHould the computer start when I short J9? Do you think the M2 is bad?
