Question

Computer won't power up correctly.

So, my computer turned off while I was playing a game, but I was able to turn it on again and log back in. The next day it did the same thing, so I took it apart and reseated everything. It powers back up, all the fans run, the hard drives are both on, but my monitors say no signal, and the mouse and keyboard don't work but I can still charge my phone plugged in the same usb ports. I've replaced the CMOS battery, tested all my ram, cleaned the CPU and new thermal paste. I've gone on multiple forums and tried their troubleshooting tips and still doesn't work... I'm stumped.

I've had this rig for about a year with no similar issues btw.

Actually that rig gets a lot of complaints

As it ages. The 10GB RAM is a clue. Try just a pair of memory. They must be exactly the same make/model. Let me be blunt, given the priors on that setup, I never give the client false hope.

But we try.

To no avail.

I just tried that, still doesn't work. I've also tried only using 1 stick of ram, and unplugging my GPU to see if I could get a beep code, but there is no beep at all.

No beep? Here's a video on no beep.

You need a rig like this to test on but usually a bad board.
Video follows.

double check the pins on the CPU

It is so easy to have one "hair" bent and not see it. Get a magnifying glass, a good cross light and examine it closely.
