    I have a 1 gHz AMD Athlon and a Biostar motherboard...when the power is cut off (thunderstorms, etc.) I can't turn it back on. I found that if I unplug my power supply from the motherboard and reconnect it, it works right away. I have replaced the power supply so I know it's not that. I've also tried just vacuuming the pin connector to make sure dust wasn't affecting the connection. Any advice?

    I really have no answer here but can only guess that there is some rudimental safety mechanism on the motherboard to prevent damage.
    Some boards have a main switch overide if the AC power supply is lost
