Default Airplane Travel - Computer Won't Power USB or monitor

Hi Tech Forums,
I've never experienced this problem before but my computer tower turns on. The keyboards and the mouse attached to it doesn't. The monitor doesn't as well.

Is there a checklist that I could go through to trouble shoot this?

I had essentially stuffed my computer desktop into my luggage and checked it into the airplane. A rocky ride. My Harddrives came from plugged into unplugged. No breaks however.

Are the kb+m plugged into the front or back of the PC? If the front, make sure the cable that goes from the front panel and plugs into your motherboard, is definitely plugged in.

Hi Yami,
Thank you for responding to my request! There were a few cables loose in the motherboard and basically just replugged everything in.

These are things such as the 1394 cable, the cmos battery reset and such.
