Hello my name is Rachele. I have had a custom built PC for about 9 months now. A couple days ago my boyfriend's GPU fried. So we took his out and was going to try mine into his. While this was happening we accidentally scraped my motherboard and the sound was pretty bad. BTW while all of this was happening of course my build was all off. We looked to see for damage but did not see a thing. So we tried to start up my computer. Nothing happened at all. So this should mean nothing else is damaged am I correct? We 100% checked to see if everything was plugged in and no switcheq were turned off. Everything was plugged in. Next thing we tried was to take out my ram and reseat it. That didn't work either. We tried his PSU cables on my motherboard and that did nothing either. I'm about 95% sure this is all a motherboard issue. Should I buy a new motherboard and install it? I appreciate the feedback. Here are my computer specs.  Please help.
Motherboard: Asus z97-A 
Processor: Intel Core i5-4590 @ 3.30 GHz 
Memory: 8GB 
Graphics Card: GTX 680 
Power Supply: Thermaltake 750W 
Monitor: Asus VX238H 60 Hz

Deep scratch on motherboard may damage layers below top cover. First try your PC with integrated graphics.
