    unplugged the case cords of my roommates pc to the mother board (the power switch, hard drive led, reset switch, etc). I plug them back in and can't turn the computer back on...

    How many do i need to have connected to boot, like should just having the power switch plugged in correctly boot the machine?

    help me out here!

    Just the power switch is enough.

    Make sure the switch on the back of the PSU is on.

    It's easy to get the front panel connector wires mixed up.

    Get a flashlight and a magnifying glass if you have to.
