I did check that thread that all other people with this problem are referred to, tried all the solutions, none of them worked. The problem is, that once (ONLY once) the computer did start up,  this was without the graphics card installed.
This also came after the realization which made me feel stupid that I had my power supply switched off. (Which I obviously turned on) Well it worked once, so I reinstalled my graphics card, put on the side panel, and hooked it up to a monitor, pressed power...Nothing.
I'd really apreciate some help.

Does it turn on without the graphics card in then?


Does it power on at all (like do fans turn for a fraction of a second before immediately shutting off) or is it effectively 'dead'.

Unplug the RAM, GPU, and all other peripherals. The motherboard should have come with a speaker if not OEM, plug it in and see if it beeps. If it does then you know the motherboard and PSU are not the offenders.
