Default PC trouble

hey guys yesterday my PC kept freezing, which i found out was because of the graphic card getting loose, so i switched slots and stuff, and somehow the pwr switch wire came off, and now even if i put it back, the computer won't turn on. I've tried putting only the necessary onto the motherboard and it still wouldn't turn on. How ever there is a blue light indicating that the power supply works ? Please help guys It's been working fine for 2 years now.

Let me know of any info i missed, long time since i built a computer

What kind connection is your graphics card using?

Also, when you say the pwr switch wire came off, you do mean the one to turn on the computer with and not your power supply right? If so, make sure you put the connector back on properly. Sometimes all it takes is for it to be on backwards.

I would say make sure you check all of your connections. Make sure when you moved your card, you didn't pull any wires loose from your motherboard.
