I have checked all wiring is correct and everything is plugged in.

It's really weird as I was playing a game before and all of a sudden the computer shuts down and will then not boot ?

Can you get into safe mode or into the BIOS?

Try pulling the DRAM, reset the CMOS and start with a single stick, then check if you have the latest BIOS

pull battery and usually depending on motherboard manufacture close to the area of the battery will be 2-3 pins should see "clr CMOS" on board next to them, I don't know if you have a jumper cap? if not just get a piece of wire/metal something conductive lol or something wrap around for 10-15 seconds it will reset.... what motherboard do you have?

You can download the motherboard manual (from the motherboard manufacturer website) for specific instructions on clearing the CMOS and reflashing the BIOS.

It may be a matter of a jumper, a button, or pulling the motherboard coin battery.
