Could be power issue or hardware problem, or an BIOS update might help with some port issues etc. (depends on what you use).

Also that the cables are good and not connected wrong or fried anything.

I found my initial problem (which was i was using old cables from the previous PSU). Now i’ve changed the cables to the same as the PSU im using now, but now, my PC turns on then off, then on , and repeat, or it looks like it is resetting it selft all the time…

I bought a new PSU (Corsair RM850x, 850 W) and i’ve connected all the cables (at least i thinks so). I connected to the CPU, one/two to the GPU, one to my Hard drive, and one to my motherboard (the big one). When i plug in the socket into the pc, the lighting off the ethernet cable lights up (so there is some power), but when i go to turn it on, there is a little noise, like the power just went, and nothing happens.

How can i fix it so my PC turns on?

Did you use the new PSU's cables or the cables from your previous unit?

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy.

Wrong. Use ALL new. Never mix cables between PSU's (unless they are the same platform).

Do you have another GPU to test with, or does your CPU have integrated graphics?
