Does it beep at all when you turn it on?

Double check all cables and connections, make sure all peripherals are fully seated in their slots.

if it doesnt turn on at all, i think you hooked up your power switch on the case wrong... i mean SOMETHING should turn on if you hooked that up right

you dont understand, the green light on his motherboard is on, meaning he is getting power to the motherboard but it will not turn on, definitely not the wall plug
