Hi kopite. Try resetting the BIOS. First try using the reset link. If that doesn't work, remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes. What can also be confusing is that the BIOS default is often set for the power switch to be held in for 4 seconds to switch off.

Check the connections for the power on the motherboard. Look through the manual to see which small pin on the connection needs to be which slot.

if you have no luck with Gongoozler's ideas.

it might be that you have put the case connectors on wrong and have shorted out the switch.

take a good close look at the manual and the connections, they can be a real pig to get right.

if it is also a new case, then it might be a faulty switch. try gently tapping with your nuckle around the power/reset switch area (and no, i dont mean punch it lol....much as it might be annoying you it will not help)
