    I've just built my son a pc and when I switched it on, A green light came on the board and the cpu fan just moved a split-second, then nothing.

    I'm a total noob to all this.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction please.

    thanks

    disconnect all cards, ram, all cables to drives to see if still a problem as sounds like a short to ground issue.

    I had the chassis fan plugged in to the psu AND motherboard.
