I recently built a PC and was happy that I even managed to get it up and running in the first place. After about three days of casual use (browsing the internet, etc.) it randomly bluescreened while I was watching a video and now it won't turn back on.

More specifically, all the lights on the components turn on and all the fans turn on too but the computer doesn't even go into the BIOS settings on bootup and every warning light on the motherboard displays (the only warning lights are CPU, DRAM, and VGA but I'm not worried about VGA since I use HDMI).

I feel like I tried everything to fix it, I took out the CMOS battery several times and put it back in as well as reset it, tried booting up without the GPU, tried booting up with alternating RAM sticks, cleaned the RAM sticks, unplugged and plugged back in cables, nothing has worked. The closest I got was after taking out the RAM sticks and putting them back in only the DRAM warning light displayed but after taking the RAM sticks out again to try to adjust them every warning light turned back on.

The only thing I can think of is that when I first set up the computer I allowed overclocking when gaming which BIOS told me might cause bluescreening, but I haven't done any gaming on the computer yet and I can't even access the BIOS to turn this setting off. Really hoping someone can help.
