Unhappy Computer Startup Problem!

I just bought a new case for my computer yesturday, I've put everything in the way its supposed to, at least from wat i believe anyway, and before when i turned it on, it stayed on for a little bit, but it would either turn off while I was logging in to my account or right when it finished loading. So I thought it was something i mixed up in the case so, i swithced it back over to my old case and the same thing happened. the little plastic frame over the CPU's iron grill, just below the fan, I broke a little latch on it and now the metal hooks cant put any pressure on the one side of it, could that be it? But then I also hooked everything back up again in the new case, the same way as before, except this time i attached the temperature readers wire to the RAM to measure the heat of the RAM and now when i turn it on, it stays on for literally one second and then shuts right back down again, i dont even see anything on the screen at all. Does anyone know wats happening, has anyone ever experienced this and can help me out? Thanx in advance.

I thought that would be the problem, though i still dont understand how the computer would only stay on for a seond then shut off, when it was staying on a lot longer before.
