Default Computer wont turn on right

Ok, just a couple days ago my computer started acting weird when I turn it on it turns on (but doesnt make the beeping noise like it usually does) but nothing comes up on the screen and its not the monitor or video card because I tested them on another computer and worked fine does anyone know what could be wrong?

You gotta be waaay more descriptive.

List your full system specs, and explain exactly what happens when you hit the power button.

Dont get lazy on us when describing your problem. Remember that people here help out of the goodness in their hearts

It sounds like either a dead DIMM or CPU.

make sure that all of the ram sticks are seated properly in the dimm slots...if not this will cause the computer to start and hang on a black screen...
