Default Power button does nothing.


So I turned off my PC this morning, went to school, came back, pressed the power button, and nothing happened. I can tell the mobo still has power, because there's a little red LED that's always on. Any clue how to trouble shoot this? I can't get a hold of a different power supply fyi.

-----My Rig-----
TForce4 motherboard (BioStar)
Radeon X850 XT
AMD 64 3200+
2GB Ram (not sure what brand)
Thermaltake TR2-430W Power Supply

Any advice will help...



Ok so I apparently had all of my LED, Spkr, and power buttons hooked up backwards in my mobo. I've had it like that for about a year, and I guess it just got fed up. So if you had the same problem as me try to flip the wires from your case to your mobo, and see if it fixes it =). I feel like an idiot.

The way you can always tell is to make sure the side with the little arrow on the female end is lined up with the positive male pin.
