I know very little to nothing about computers so it was probly a very bad idea to take my computer apart and put it back together in a new case. so does anyone know why my computer is not responding when i turn it on in this new case? either a cable is connected in the wrong port or my video cards broke anything will help.

Hi Tomcat21890! Welcome to Geeks to Go!

First off, have you read this thread and tried everything listed there? If not, tell us what works for you, or that you've double-checked everything and still no joy.

It says for a new build, but these steps still may help you.

Let us know :)

just out of curiosity ...why did you change case's...
did you add more hardware when you switched case's or is it EXACTLY the same as before...
do you have your mobo manual...
does your mobo have a LED on it to let you know you have power to the mobo...and does it light up when the computer is plugged in and the switch on the power supply is turned on..
make sure the connectors for the power switch (from the front of the case) are on the right pins to the mobo
