Computer doesn't want to work sometimes...

check all your power connections to the mobo

 

loose power connectors may trip the PC

I'm so confused right now. My first PC that i build about a week and a half ago randomly turns off and wont turn back on. The weird thing is that when i try to turn it back on the fans connected to the motherboard whether the CPU cooler, the GPU fans, or the rear fan don't turn on and the front fans connected to the PSU do. The motherboard also has a led thingy on it that when powered turns on but when this happens it doesn't turn on.

 

I don't know if this is a PSU problem or a motherboard problem i would need someone else help on this one. I don't have a spare anything so changing anything at the moment without knowing it's faulty is impossible.

These are the parts:

I'm sure all the connections to the motherboard are connected properly.

all of that can be caused by a semi connected connection?
