I put the cmos battery back in its slot and there was an electrostatic discharge. Then my pc would not turn on whatsoever. I checked my psu with the paperclip and it works. I then checked all of my connections and made sure they were good. So I started examining the motherboard and noticed this. I got this motherboard in October 2020 from MSI on amazon. Could this be why the pc isn't even attempting to turn on? What are my options?
