Computer turns on and off by itself, need help

After a two and a half hour car ride, my custom PC refuses to turn on. Every two seconds it turns on and off again. I opened it up and found that when I removed a ram stick, it would completely turn on, but nothing would boot on screen. Any ideas?

Try reseating the ram, making sure both dimms are adequetely seated and latched into place.

I second this. The RAM could have likely been knocked out of place ever so slightly.

If you weren't getting video either, I'd recommend reseating your GPU as well, if you have one.
