I went to install new ram and pci card. Power chord was disconnected before starting and I'm sure I touched metalbbll before starting, to ground out. All done, power on. System turns on and instantly turns off before post. I tested the psu by itself with the paper clip method. Psu ran fine. Hooked mobo and upsurge up only. Back to original problem. Mobo was out of my tower sitting on cardboard for the test. I feel pretty comfortable saying my mobo is shorterd out but just asking for a second opinion. Thanks!
