    Post a list of all the components in the PC please.

    If the switch off was done by pressing the power switch on the case it shouldn't have done any harm.

    Have you read the guide at the top of the hw forum for problem builds? If not, do so. If you follow ALL of the steps, you will find the cause of your no POST condition.

    Common errors for new builders;
    1 Aux 4/8/12pin pw connector not plugged in
    2 Motherboard shorted to case due to incorrect placement of standoffs
    3 Parts not compatible. Does not seem to be the cause in this case
    4 Incorrect install of heatsink fan or cooler. More an intel problem than an amd problem since the amd type coolers are pretty much idiot proof

    Just an observation on your choice of motherboard. That is a low end gigabyte board; no dual bios, realtek lan [instead of intel lan] older audio codec, etc. A board like this is ok for a basic build ie onchip video, email, etc it is not intended on running a gaming type video card.

    The speaker is something like this pic. Do understand that the speaker is not needed for the board to POST.
