    Urg need help, led steady on, doesnt boot.

    Im running the ampie case and it has been fine for a month, yesterday i jostled around a few wires in the front of the car to better conceal them (pc is in the back) and now when i plug in the connector I get the red led and all of the usb devices light up and im pretty sure i heard the hardrive spin after a few seconds but no fans or boot up.

    I thought I might have pulled my switched 12v line out up front so i tried the one that turns on my amp and i get the same result... can anyone help me troubleshoot this....I've tried searching and i've come up empty.

    ok i measured EVERYTHING with a multimeter and checked EVERYTHING and i burned up my Q2 and the only thing I could've done is touched hot and ground together on my screen power which is powered from the m1-atx. Would that cause that short?

    Touching a hot to a ground is the textbook definition of a short.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    ok thank you for the response, so what is the best move next, just buy a new one, try to fix this myself, take it or send it somewhere?

    I seriously hope my screen still works.

    Survey the damage, I guess. I've never been in your situation, so I don't really know where to go next.

    Ok, i don't think i touched those two wires together actually after some testing... After reading an FAQ on M1-atx I think i may plugged it in too many times while connected to the battery, at least 10+ hard offs/on...would that blow the q2?
