There is a component or pin broken on the motherboard
Explanation: A component is broken on the motherboard, or a pin that makes up one of the connectors or headers on the motherboard is broken.
Diagnosis: Depending on what the part is that is broken, this may or may not be a big problem. The only causes of broken components on a motherboard are manufacturing defect, abuse, or accidental damage. If the board itself is working OK, you may not need to do anything, but you may have difficulty upgrading or expanding the motherboard later on.
