either your motherboard is bad, or your power supply.

try resetting the bios on the motherboard. I always do this first as this sometimes solves random problems. Do you have a different power supply you can try it with? Make sure the RAM, Video card and CPU and in their sockets correctly. Also make sure you have all the power plugged into the motherboard and video card.
