Original problem started when I decided to install modular PSU, and at the same time test if I could install a newer used GPU. Computer starts and fans rotate, but I can not hear any bios beeps. Nothing shows up on display.

 

I have switched back to the old PSU, but the problem still persists. No beeps, no pictures. Nothing. Except fans rotate and computer "starts up". 

 

SPECS

NZXT Lexa (case)

MSI P35 Platinum (Motherboard)

4GB RAM ([Performance] F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ G.Skill DDR2 800Mhz)

Q6600 (CPU)

Antec Eartwatts  80 plus 500W

While again being properly grounded the whole time [to avoid electrostatic discharge', back to only motherboard, power supply test.  Add each RAM stick one a time, test [this time without the other stuff attached].  Add keyboard, add mouse...add each item one at a time back into the computer and onto the computer.

I might be wrong, however, power supply might be "told" to shut down, not power up, because of a short or an improper grounding, somewhere.

Yeah, it seems the problem is in one of the ram sticks. Removed all the ram, and tested one ram in slot 1 > nothing ... picked up a different RAM and tested it in Slot 2 > and it starts up ... next thing is solving if the SLOT 1 is broken or just one of the ram sticks.

It was one of the G.skills ..hmph
