  1. I bought a barbone kit a while back from tigerdirect. I built the computer and turned it on. Runs fine then I hold the button down and nothing is shuting off. I reconnect everything on the mobo and still, it turns on and doesnt shut off. I even held the button down for over a minute. I have to turn the switch off in the back. Can anyone help?

    Does the front switch turn the machine on?

    Review page 12 of your motherboard manual and ensure that you have attached everything to your motherboard properly. You can download a copy of your motherboard manual here.
