    Anyone know what’s causing my pc not to start up? Everything is plugged in to the right ports, can anyone confirm the issue?

    So, what actually happens (or doesn't) when you try to turn on the PC?

    There's a lot of grime around the CPU, and I'd advise blasting that out with a compressed air canister.

    Ill give it a quick dusting, other then that it’s not respondingwhen I turn it on. Pretty sure all cables are plugged in properly

    Your question is analogous to asking "My car does not start; what's the problem? Well your problem could be a LOT of different things AND you need to post a LOT more info.
    Start with what exactly happens when you press the ON button.
    Next list ALL of your exact parts; ie exact motherboard, exact cpu, exact video card, exact pw supply, etc, etc. Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.

    larry, that's a bit difficult when the PC won't even boot.

    No worries, larry. It's not the first time I've skimmed something and got hold of the wrong end of the stick (y)
