1.) Heatsink is not completely on processor. (It won't turn on if it knows it will overheat.)
2.) A component is dead. (Semiconductors die. A lot.)
2a.) Motherboard got an energy spike. (They are very sensitive to electricity.)
3.) Your RAM is not compatible. (Doubt it, but one has to check.)
4.) Something is shorting the motherboard. (...Very, very, very sensitive to electricity.)

Is this a new build... or did something happen? (Granted, you might not know.)


ok, heatsink is on, ram is compatible, not a new build. i left the computer alone for a while and removed the monitors, moved the computer and now nothing works....
