I bumped my pc with my knee and it shut off , I mean really shut off, nothing , nada.
No fans, no leds, no beeps, no video.
Disconnected everything but power supply and mobo and cpu. No POST.
Nothing, not even any beeps.
Where do I go from here?

Possibly by you bumping a power cable came out of it's socket? Have you checked to make sure all the connection in the computer are conected properly?

I reinseret the RAM amd cleaned the heat sink and Ram off some dust
and now MY pc is working fine.
I guess i must have disturbed the Ram while connecting the hard drives.
I wonder if the dust was the problem........

If there's a accumalation of alot of dust in a specific spot. It can cause damage for the connectiong and can block fans a bit.

You can reduce the accumalation by keeping the computer off the floor.

Davidanthony:

Dead Pc, dead in the water

I would just like to point out that PCs are not designed to be run submerged.

On the serious side:

You indicated in a previous post that the power off problem has happened before and that the PC powered back on after:You didn't share those same facts here. Don't eliminate the possibility that the power supply itself is the cause of the problem. If there was a loose connection in the power supply that caused the original power off problems and after the latest bump that loose connection is now an open, you will not find the problem by doing any of the above suggestions.

I would attempt to borrow or buy a power supply and replace the current one to eliminate that possibility.
