    Recently I removed my heatsink and rearranged my ram sticks after dealing with a horrendous audio issue that my friend suggested fixing by swapping slots of my ram sticks. Everything is plugged in, however when I press my power button nothing turns on. My power supply is working fine as I can see my graphics card light up, but I’ve already unplugged everything and plugged it back in by now and I can’t get it to start up, keep in mind 15 minutes before I did this my pc was running fine minus an audio issue where my audio would turn off for a few seconds then come back on.

    Aside from the fact that your friend gave you bad advice to remedy your audio issue, you need to be more detailed and clearer as to exactly what you did.

    You removed WHAT heatsink?
    How exactly did you replace it?
