Hi, recently my aunt gave me an old desktop of hers just until i get enough money to get a new one and it was working fine until yesterday. Yesterday morning it would not start. I would press the power button and nothing would happen. I had a usb flash drive being used as virtual memory and when i took it out it started up again. The computer worked the whole day, i turned it off at night, and this morning it wouldn't start up again. I read that the ram could go bad and that i should try to take one module out and try to start it, then put it back and do the same thing with the other one. Well i did that and it still didn't start up. I don't know what to do. There's a little light on the motherboard and its green if that has any importance. Well yeah, so what can i do to get it started up again?

Power supply and CMOS should be swap and replaced then try not to use the USB flash drive memory(?). Reinsert all cable connections.
