Cat stepped on power button, and no signal

While gaming, my cat stepped on my PC power button, and now upon turning on the PC, I get no error lights on my motherboard, but there is no signal to my monitor. Is there a known fix for this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If specs are needed:

  • Cylon RGB Mid tower case
  • I7-12700k
  • Gigabyte RTX 3080
  • EVGA 750W 80+ gold modular PSU
  • MSI PRO Z-690-A Wifi DDR4
  • Cooler Master Master Liquid ML240L
  • Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3200MHz DDR4
  • SK Hynix Gold P31 2TB SSD

Pushing the power button (even if by a cat 馃檪聽)聽may shut down the PC, but can't do any harm unless you were updating Windows or BIOS...

You can try using the board video port /iGPU and check if it gives signal
