Default Computer Dead???

So I got a new case and I took all my old stuff out of my old computer (which sucks) and I put it in the new case now when I try to start the computer nothing happens. The processor fan stays running on "high blast" and I get no video. Did I **** up my motherboard or could it possibly be something else. I'll be back to check this post soon. PLEASE HELP!

Make sure all your components are seated tightly. If that doesnt help, try clearing CMOS.

Unplug the computer from the wall, press the power button to drain any remaining power. Then remove the little coin battery on the motherboard for about 15 minutes.

Make sure your RAM is seated tightly, that can cause your computer not to POST. Do you get any beep codes, by chance? If you have a spare case speaker, hook that up to the new case, if it does not have one.
