pc wont turn on

hello i recently build a new pc connecting all the parts and the cables when i turn it on the screen start freezing and only solutions was to either press the reset or the power on/off button, so i went into some research about it and couple of posts in other forums and i've been told that i should run a bench test with only the basics components of the pc to see what cause the freezing, thing is i stripped it down to basics and when i tried to turn it on it wont turn on i start connecting the cables one by one until i got all the parts and the cables connected pressed the start button and again nothing still dnt work. any help please with the issue im really frustrated dnt know what to do..

Re: won't turn on

Either you did something wrong putting it together (not all necessary connections between the parts, or some connections to the wrong connector) or one of the components is defective.

A few questions:
- What exactly does "freezing" mean in your case? What does it do when you turn it on and where exactly does it stop doing something with what text or pics on the screen?
- What exactly are your 'basics'?
