"short" , not sort, the jumpers with a screwdriver. Means use a screwdriver to connect the two pins instead of the connector for the power button. If it powers on, there is a short somewhere in the power connector cable. If the computer doesn't power on, there is a power problem somewhere, either in the power supply or the motherboard. If this is the case, start by disconnecting and reconnecting ALL power connections first. If that doesn't help, the power supply would be my first suspect as a failed component.

Dust off your pc thoroughly, then reset CMOS by removing the battery, of course after unplugging power cable. Check the PW connection that goes from front to motherboard. If you still fail to boot, try sorting the motherboard 2-pin PW connector with a screwdriver. Let me know how it goes

removing the battery did not work

what do you mean sort out with a screwdriver

the jumper was already connected to cmos pins
