  1. Make/model or system spec including psu?
    New build?
    Did this PC ever run before?
    What was the last thing you changed/did before the symtoms started?

    As a quick fix attempt:
    - power off and pull *all* USB cables from the tower. (Oh this is a tower, right? not a laptop?)
    - remove keyboard and mouse if not done already.
    - power up and let it boot as far as it will.
    - power down. Install keyboard and mouse. boot up.

    If it works, plug in USB cables one at a time. All should be OK.
