Default Re: Desktop turns on automatically??

Ok so first the video wasent working so i opened it up and also seen the the heat sink fan was broken so i got a new heat sink and video card. i opened up the case to put the heat sink in, and yes i did use proper grounding and thermal paste. then i took out the old video card that was in their and i replaced it with a newer one that required the 6-pin Pci-express power so i plugged that in. when i went to plug it in, it turned on automatically and the softpower switch wasent working, so i tried messing around with the switch connections to the motherboard and that didnt help. so now the video doesnt work and it turns on automatically.
