comment Desktop Computer Not Starting
You state "bridging pins"...was this at the switch or the header block (where the wires for the button attach to the mobo). If you only bridged at the switch, you may want to be sure that the front panel wires are attached to the header block. With what you have been changing, it could have become disconnected...anyway, it is a good thing to eliminate as a potential problem.

Try changing the SATA cable. Have had issues with what looked like a good one, but turned out a new cable fixed the issue.

comment Computer mysteriously seems to power on after surge, but no video or network
Might be worth swapping the power supplies of both PCs. If the Linux starts up and the Windows does not, then you can point the problem to the PS.

Just as a test. If you right click on your desktop, left click on screen resolution. Does it show a circle with 1 and 2 or just the number 1?

comment What steps should I take when upgrading my PC with an SSD?
@whs - I have found that Windows (7) to be pretty smart and sets this correctly with a fresh install. Now partition copy is another story, but the OP states a fresh install. :)
