Answers :

Try taking the ram chip out then see if thats the prob by turning on the computer without it if its not, try unhooking the cd drive and then try turning on the computer if thats not it then try unhooking the hard drive and check if thats it one of those should be the problem i had the same prob but i messed with the ram chips and it worked i just took it out started it up and it worked if thats the prob just start it up then shut it down and put the ram chip back in and it should be fine
