  1. Is this outside of the case? If inside, then test outside of the case to ensure it isn't shorting to a post or something else.

    Thank you GhislainG's your response is highly appreciated,...my pc is working but the powerlight of the monitor turn to color orange and display nothing, I opened the system unit and press and hold the northbridge heatsink then the powerlight of the monitor turn to color green and it has display but when I release the heatsink it become orange again and nothing has displayed.
  3. Something is shorting to the case, there's a cold solder joint in that area (difficult to see when installed in a case) or a run is cracked.
