Hmm ok this all started after I replaced my broken CPU with a similiar one. I started the computer after putting the new cpu/heatsink in but turned it off (back switch) when i realized that i didnt have the moniter plugged in. When I plugged the moniter in and turned the switch to on+ pressed power button, my computer wouldn't start. Neither my computer nor PSU will start. I tried replacing the cords/power outlet and nothing will work.

What could be wrong? MY mobo, PSU, new CPU?

I also tried unplugging everythign except for the 24 pin connector to see if the PSU would start up then but it didnt.

How sure are you that your cpu was broken?
What kind of PSU do you own?
Try to find another PSU, if you can, and test it on your Comp
Also, did you apply the Heatsink, CPU, and thermal grease properly?

You need to start with another psu...what's your hardware here? Motherboard, cpu, psu, ram etc...if you had a typical psu, you could have blown it easily throwing the back switch as you did. If pulling the power cord out and plugging directly into wall outlet doesn't do it, that is probably what happened.

Hoe di9d you determine cpu was shot in the first place as it sounds as much like the board is "toast" and maybe that was the whole problem. It takes a lot to kill a cpu, and little at all to kill a board, especially a cheap board which Foxconn is sorry to say.

yup thanks. I've concluded that it's my motherboard =( So when I install a new motherboard and new operating system, will I get my previous setup/files?

You should be able to get files back but just a warning that if you are running Windows XP or Vista they will likely complain about you replacing your MB.
