Hi, could you please list your full specs, and describe the problem a bit better? Does it just not post, or will it not power on at all?

2. Make sure your Powerbutton plugs are in the correct place.

Double check all connections.

Is there any sound/beeps or flashing lights when you try to boot it up?

Those beeps are called POST code. They determine what is wrong with your computer by how many beeps and the duration of each. Some mainboards like mine has a LED screen which shows a number and letter combination.
