I changed the motherboard and power supply yesterday, because i diagnosed them as problems. Before the changes the PC wouldn't turn on, now with the changes it at least turns on but then turns off instantly. I'm thinking the RAM may be the problem. Any help?

I'm thinking the RAM may be the problem because when I remove the RAM and start it up it still turns on and off. Any help?

Yep, same problem persists
What do the 4 small Q-LEDs on your motherboard (next to the 24-pin power connector) show when you boot?

The POST State LEDs provide the status of these key components during POST (Power-On Self-Test): CPU, memory modules, VGA card, and hard disk drives. If an error is found, the critical component’s LED stays lit up until the problem is solved.

None of the 4 LEDs light up, and the orange LED above the 24 pin connector lights up which according to the manual means that power is going through the motherboard and the components.

Recently my PC broke and it wouldn't turn on at all. I recently changed my mobo and my PSU do due to them being faulty, and now my PC turns on then straight off. The Power LED is on, and none of the critical error LEDs are on, but I can't troubleshoot the problem. I tried using one Ram stick and switching DIMM slots and no RAM but the same problem persists. If a CPU is faulty will it turn on then off immediately? I think the problem is my RAM but I'm not 100% sure.
