Thanks for posting
I just wish we could have ascertained what the problem was.
Depending on your availability of trying a return on that motherboard, as it is only four months old - perhaps it is worthwhile.

As a said before the

Ok thanks, well heres a pic of the MB model i have from newegg and and estimate of where i accidently hit the board

It was the end piece of metal on a chipset that touched a circuit on the motherboard... the second it connected the PC automatically rebooted immediately...and later followed was a Windows has recovered from an unsuspected error message. Just a couple hours later as I try to play my music..thats when I realized the sound wasnt right.

Well now I know that, and I did ask back on post 2

I do remember fixing something inside my PC tower and i didnt have the computer off, it touched the MB


- what was it that hit the motherboard -

What did please


I have little doubt that it has damaged the circuitry.

It is all water under the bridge really now, but I am just a little confused as to what you were trying to do with the chipset, especially with the power on.

In any case, I think you have been lucky to get away with apparently just the sound problem

I was taking the chipset out from the board and instead of turning it off. Without even thinking about it I just got lazy and took it out without powering down while the PC was on.
