Hi. Recently I have been trying to solve an issue with my computer. It is not booting up. I assumed after several tests that my PSU was dead. So, I replaced it with a fresh PSU. It then booted up normally. Then, I closed a magnetic door on the front of the chassis on my computer. As soon as the magnets snapped together, the entire computer stopped cold (someone explain how that happens!). The next morning, I observed the motherboard was receiving power. I tried restarting the PSU, then pressing the power button. The PSU gives me a click, the motherboard does nothing. Repeating these steps only produces the same result. I'm assuming a fuse is broken. Can anyone explain what happened? Thanks.

That appears to be the chassis intrusion sensor going off. When you look inside the computer, do you see a lone connector with 2 pins? If so it might be labeled with cii.

I found two pins labeled "CLR_CMOS" but no "CII". My motherboard is specifically a Gigabyte Z87-D3HP.
EDIT: I removed my graphics card and put it back in, and it started up again. I guess I placed it improperly after trying to put another graphics card in, discovering it was too long to fit in my PC (Sorry for not mentioning that earlier). Anyway, thank you for your effort to get my PC back up and running.
