Pc wont boot after cmos reset

When I intially powered up my pc (without the gpu,adaptor or hdd), it was completey fine. After I plugged in a hdd, the pc refused to start and continued to refuse to start up even after I removed it. So i tried to reset the cmos (I made sure to unplug the psu from the wall and turn everything off beforehand) and after I did this, the fans spin for a second or two but no other signs of power is present afterwards.

  1. Your parts list looks OK except for the poor quality PSU.

    What OS? What monitor?

    Make sure you've connected everything correctly per http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-steps-posting-post-boot-video-problems
