A big problem with my PC

I have managed to take my PC apart and after I put it back together I was shocked to realize it doesn't work anymore! The thing is, when I pushed the on button it turned the light that says that it's on, the screen has started to open but then it got closed again and the computer just stayed in a situation where there is no screen (the keyboard wasn't working either - I tried to push the numlock and no light came on) and the pc shows an orange light is if it is on stand-by... anyone has an idea on how to fix this?

How sad, that's a bad idea that you take your pc apart without any knowledge of how to put it's parts back. Check your hardware if it's on the right place, or maybe its loose, press it more to intact or maybe you forgot to put something. Same thing with your keyboard and mouse. Check everything. If you know that is good enough then turn on your computer. I hope this would help you. Next time don't do that again, hardware is very sensitive.... Cheers=)

One thing, it happens to me before, I forgot to mention. Try to insert your memory to the other slot and the wire on the hard disk make sure its intact, press it more to be sure then turn it on. Let's see what's gonna happen=)

that was a big problem. especially when you have no knowledge at all. firstly find out what is the first sound come out when you turn on the pc. 2 long beep sound means ram problem. take it out and put it back. if no sound at all, check your cpu. make sure there's no burn chip and it locate at the right position

when you turned on the PC again, did you notice any beeping sound? if so, check the RAM and your video card. make sure it is inserted properly and both are not damaged. if you didn't notice any beeping sound, check the IDE cables(thick ones) connected to your hard disk, make sure the red-marked side is at the right-hand side. if none of these work, please post again, and please give us a little description of how the cpu looks and how the cables are connected. c',)

I would recommend you to unplug all the cards(except video), harddrives, CD/DVD-drives, memory etc. from motherboard and try booting again. You should be able to get in BIOS. When you have reached that point, you can start plugging memory and other stuff one by one and you'll see which is faulty one, or hopefully everything is working fine. In case you cannot get it working at all, I'm afraid that you've broken motherboard=(
