Hello Soumik,

The first thing you may want to try is taking the system to a minimum configuration (without graphics card and only one memory stick) and check if you get video or any beeps.

Make sure both power supply cables (2x2, 2x12) are connected and try not to use any converters to the monitor.

You may also try to clear the CMOS in your motherboard by removing the battery for 20 minutes without power connected.

The next steps will depend on the outcome or behavior the system presents; please refer to the following article for further troubleshooting steps:
