Fire up your PC. If it boots up just fine and you get a bios screen on your monitor, you can move to the next step. If not, don’t panic. Make sure your power supply is turned on and check all of your cables to make sure everything is connected. If everything is connected, check to see if your motherboard has a power switch built onto it and press it. If your rig fires up after pressing that, just check that you have your Front Panel Connectors are connected properly. Trust me, it is a pretty common mistake.
