    Hi
    i just installled a watercooler for my comp, but as i was removing the retention clips from my mb, my screw driver slipped and hit the back of the mobo and made a small mark, i was hoping it wasnt serious and so caerried on with my install. i have now installed everything and motherboard and all wires are back in their places.
    BUT NOW WHEN I PRESS THE START UP BUTTON, NOTHING HAPPENS :( I WANA CRY LOL, is it because i damaged the motherboard? even though i cant turn all the lights on the inside of my mobo are on and so is the display on my tower but it still wont turn on

    There is a very real possibility that you damaged the board.

    What I would do.
    1 Pull the board from the case.
    2 Place it on a non-conductive surface like a motherboard box. Do not use an anti-static bag since the outside of some bags can conduct electricity.
    3 Connect your video card and monitor.
    4 Use the original hsf after cleaning all parts and put on fresh arctic silver compound.
    5 Connect your power supply to the board. Do not forget the extra 4pin connector
    6 Now use something like a small screwdriver to jump across the power switch pins on the board. If it is still ok, it will post and you will get a display. If it does not post, you have damaged the board.

    Good luck

    Are you getting any beeps at the beginning? Did it post to BIOS?

    Go back and look at your install again, make sure everything is secure, like the processor, video card, etc.

    I suspect it's time to closely examine the area of the damage with a loupe and see if you cut one or more wires. They can be repaired, but it's not a job for an amateur.
