Did you just build this PC or have you had it for a long time? Anything displaying on the monitor at least? RAM count? Can you access the BIOS?

Well, if you're telling me that the light is on before you powered it up, it could be your power supply, or your motherboard is dead.

It also could be that the Ram sticks are not snug, or you may be using two or three different ram sticks that are all different company's. Sometimes mixing two or three different company's will cause that also.

That is a possibility. Reseat them, but mixing brands hasn't been a big hassle in computer land...well, to my tries, it hasn't.
