You may have knocked something loose when you moved it. I seen that happen many times. If there are any jumpers on the motherboard, take a look and make sure they are all still there.

What happens when you turn it on?

Download the Manual from here and look up the jumper setting on page 31. Make sure there is nothing underneath the motherboard causing it to short to the case. Make sure everything is properly attached. Go through everything we discussed in the last thread you posted.

I will say that one side of the motherboard looks higher than the others tho so something could be underneath of it..

Keep looking in the manual, the cmos has a jumper on it. Other than that I don't know what it might be.
