Hi guys! I misinterpreted someone on YouTube saying that you should reset CMOS while being plugged in. I did that a couple of times😭 and now I'm pretty sure it's broken... Anything I can do except buy a new motherboard.


The motherboard is a gigabyte H61M -s1

You're not dumb, just made a mistake. We all make them, and is just part of the learning journey.
Although your poll did make me laugh, so thank you...

What exactly is happening?
First of all thanks for the support..
I plug in the cable to the wall. Then press the power button. The power led lights up and fans spin but all of this only for fraction of a second. And it does not turn back on on its own

Which Pentium exactly?

Also what warranted you getting this Motherboard? Replacing an old one or you've put together an old piece part build?
No no I had this pc for a long time but today it suddenly started to give me problems. When I looked it up on YouTube. I thought I got my solution. The problem was of switching on and off(but this time it would take longer to switch off). Even I don't remember the Pentium. It is an old PC.

Update: I tried shorting the green and black cables of the PSU and the PSU momentarily turns on and then off. What do yo deduce from this?

Assuming you're referring to the "paperclip" test as set out on that guide? If so, could be a defective PSU. If you've had the PC for ages, PSUs fail, all PSUs have a shelf life, especially poor quality ones.
