    The method with the button didnt work. I guess ill need to wait for the refund and get a new motherboard if there are no other ways of fixing the issue. Thanks for any help by the way.

    You're welcome. But something's significantly wrong if your PC is blowing up MBO's.

    I agree that sounds like a PSU issue something back feeding and shorting out your MOBO , a press of a button when your pc frozen will not cause that issue you are having, the worst it can do is seriously mess up a hard drive, a risk we all take when we do it if a pc freezes, we i bet have all had to do it one time or another. if i was you i would try another PSU on that MOBO, before you count it out. as i highly doubt its broken, sounds more like i said and other in this thread a dying PSU.

    Hey. So i tried the method and it didnt work straight away but after waiting 2 days i decided just to try to turn it on again and it works... weird.. what steps should i follow now to stop it from happening in the future ? Its so surprising that it worked as i was ready to dismantle all the components and send the motherboard on the rma.. but it worked lol..

    I'd be tempted to check for any possible loose or dodgy connections, dirt etc- anything that could, at the most simple level, cause erratic operation.

    Then stress test it- use some utilities that exercise your CPU/GPU (search and ye shall find).

    It sounds like sthg erratic related to your chassis- but impossible to tell and could be hard to identify.
