Hi,
please try following DIY

1.REFIX ALL THE CONNECTORS.
2.CHECK WHETHER POWER IS COMING AND FAN IS MOVING BEHIND THE CPU.
3.IF MOVING CHECK ON K/B LEDS ARE GLOWING.
4.IF GLOWING THEN TAP THE NUM LOCK AND CHECK WHETHER IT IS RESPONDING.
5.IF RESPONDING THEN TRY TO REFIX THE RAM IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO YOU.
6.IF NOT THIS MIGHT BE THE ISSUE WITH SYSTEM BOARD.

Dear Lisa,
I think you need to start from SMPS.Check the supply for the voltages on all the jacks.2nd culprit can be *********** board. If you are not conversant with PC hardware, better to get it serviced with an qualified person.
Best of Luck.Please rank me appropriately. If you want any clarification, Please get back to me
