My computer was on and I literally tipped it up off of it's side by 2-3 inches and the whole screen froze. The sound was frozen on an annoying EEEEEEE sound.

After that, there was no display.
The computer would turn on and off 1 second after it turned on.

I took out the video card and ram and the computer turns on, but no display. Although it turns on, it would turn back off (evidenced by the fan turning off) every couple of minutes.

What could be wrong?

Is my MOBO fried? PSU bad?

Build (only thing plugged in)
H81 MOBO
intel g2330
PSU

I have an SSD, but I disconnected the hard drive when I'm trying to boot so I eliminated that.Also, I would have display if the hard drive went bad wouldn't I?
I only have the CPU, MOBO, and PSU in.
At the moment, I'm thinking that it's the PSU.

Well it really depends which sector of the drive has been damaged. Try and connect your monitor through the motherboard's onboard graphics and see how it goes. Install one ram stick as well.

I tried doing that (graphics thru MOBO) with no avail.
I tried it with 1 and no stick of ram as well.
I also tried it with 1 stick of ram and connecting through the video card (2 to be exact, 1 current and 1 old one)
