resetting the bios will do nothing, your motherboard is toast. you shorted it out.
hopefully now this will teach you to TURN THE PC OFF, and unplug it from the wall before you do anything inside your pc, unplugging anything, swapping stuff....etc.

I've never heard of such a thing....even the least computer literate person would turn the pc off before doing anything inside. you could have even shocked yourself in the process.

to reset the bios there is a jumper that you have to move then move back, or take the lithium battery out and wait 5 secs then put it back in.

Sounds like the mobo is dead though.. Have fun we've all done it at somepoint. (fried something we really needed)

Shocked himself?!
Are you kidding? He could've KILLED himself!

Whenever there is a spark and suddenly your computer shuts down, 9 times out of 10, it's dead. You're gonna have to replace the MB.... Sorry DsT...

Usually to test some stuff, you turn it off. If you would have turned it off and checked by on and off, it would still have been fine and you wouldn't have posted this thread. Unfortunately, it's done. But, you learned from your mistake Nothing's bad after all
