  1. First, my computer had BSOD every time i start up my computer so i reset the cmos but after my computer didnt power up at all, no fan, no sound, nothing other then the green light on the mobo when everything is plugged in. I try turning on the computer with another PSU that i had but still nothing. Anyone has any idea what is wrong or what i can do?

    Hi CS,
    did you clear the CMOS by removing, and moving a jumper pin?....if you did make sure that the metal insert (the part that connects the pins) in the jumper didn't fall out or come out of the plastic casing and stay on the second set of pins when you reset the CMOS.
