Tell us the specification of the computer. Make, Model and if possible the motherboard. It`s almost certainly the latter.

Do you get to POST?

reseat everything including CPU.

reset the BIOS by removing the battery.

Could be the mainboard capacitor problem.
Look for the damaged capacitor(s).

Hope this helps!
