my pc wont turn on but the motherboard light is lit up, i have changed the psu over to the original one but still no luck psu light is on too ( I did have an antec one in there), it is a dell xps 435mt with 17 950 6gb ram, i have mo idea why it is doing this as it was working fine before.

I would double check that all the cables and wires are fully connected, case to motherboard more so as power button wire etc can come out slightly as you move cables around.

Take out the sticks of RAM and try them one at a time in a variety of slots, trying to find out if you have a faulty RAM module or a faulty RAM slot.
