Hey guys!

After a fire in my apartment I had to rebuild my PC. Fortunately only the case suffered, I tested the HD and the SSD at a friend's and both are perfectly fine.
I bought a new case and a new PSU (just to be sure), and after rebuilding the whole thing, the PC won't work. At first, it didn't start at all, but then after reseting the CMOS it started finally. But now the screen is completely black and the Dram led appears red on the Mobo. I've spent hours trying different things I red on the internet but nothing works. Here's what I did :
  • reseting the CMOS
  • tried other Ram slots
  • tried with my friend's RAM module
  • pressed the MEMOK button (the led blinks several times then returns to still red)
  • verified that all was plugged correctly
I have no idea what I could try now and what is deficient (CPU, RAM, Mobo?)

If anyone has an idea it'd be helpful as I wouldn't want to buy anything before being sure I need it regarding the financial diffulties of this period.

gear :

Asus Z97a
Intel i7 4790k
HyperX fury DDR3 (2x8)

Thanks a lot for your help

Might I ask if the fire was caused by a PSU...? Try removing the CMOS battery for at least 30 mins before replacing it. Also try a fresh cell.

Hey! Thanks for your response

Here s what I got :

Intel i7 4790K
Asus Z97A
HyperX Fury DDR3 (2x8)
SanDisk SSD Plus 120Go / Seagate Barracuda 2To
No GPU
Corsair CX 550
Cooler Master Silencio

No, the fire wasn't caused by a component.
I forgot to tell I've already tried to remove the CMOS several times but I'll try it once more.
I'm sorry, I'm not sure to know what a fresh cell is.
