I was using my computer and it just all of a sudden turned off and now it won't turn on so I can't get into the BIOS menu. The computer is around 4 months old and this is the first problem I've had with it. I know that it is still getting power because the power button on the motherboard is lit up and when I unplug it and plug it back in and press power the fans light up for around a second. I don't think that it was caused by overheating because when I was making sure that nothing came loose I didn't feel any heat. Any ideas on what happened and how to fix it?

Specs:
CPU - i7-4770K
PSU - Corsair HX750
MOBO - ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150
GPU - MSI GeForce GTX 770

first, clear CMOS.
if it's not work, try minimum system, only CPU, memory, motherboard to power on. remove/disconnect all GC, HDD, optical drive, etc. if power on, connect GC, HDD etc one by one. if not, CPU, memory or motherboard is broken. replace them one by one to find the bad one.
