Uas using "small flathead screwdriver on the pins of the connecter " sure sounds like you have shorted out your mother board. Which pins did you use? Any particular ones? Post some images of your motherboard with your querstion so we can try and see if there is obvious damage. Use [guide|21499|this guide]for that. You also want to give us any identifying numbers on the board. That way we can at least try to find a schematic. Right now, from what you are describing, it sounds like a definitely short circuited component.
