To boot Both of those need to go into the mobo.


"Power switch connector" usually refers to the connector between the 
power switch on the case and the little jumper set on the mobo.

I'd been having problems with the psu, arcing, not working unless plug removed and replaced, so I assumed that the psu had died. Today shows it wasn't the psu! Not even the monitor shows that it's connected, just says no signal.
