NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER
Recommended system power: 450 watts (minimum)
Supplementary Power Connector: 1 x 8-pin PCI Express power

You must connect the one 8-pin power cable.
The minimum power supply recommended is 450 watts but I would go with at least 500 watts.

Post your systems specs using TSG System Information Utility

Is this a new build or an existing system with a new GPU?
What to do next depends upon that answer.

You have to understand nobody can say what is wrong with your computer. You have to methodically work through this a step at a time and try to figure out what the problem is.

Assuming everything is working then that leaves cables, connections or a short somewhere.

If I were you I would disconnect everything. Then only plug in what is absolutely necessary. That includes CPU, RAM and video card, power, and front panel power switch connection. If that works then plug everything else back in.

If all this does not get your computer working then you might have a bad computer part somewhere. The easiest way to isolate this is substituting good parts for bad. I realize most people don't have spare parts.

I sympathize with that because I had a computer hit by lightning 10 years ago. I did not have any spare parts so I ended up just building a new computer. I finally got the broken computer working after 8 months after acquiring enough spare parts to figure out what had failed.
