Is there a flat power cable and a small two wire cable from the PSU to
the riser card with the GIO slots? If yes, there should be a smal PCB at
the outside of the PSU. Connect the two cables to that PCB when no GFX
is pluged in.
I had that "doesn't pwer on" problem once and needed to reseat the riser
card to get it fixed...

Yes, you can. But I don't know the cammands you need out of my head. :-(
