Computer froze and now keeps restarting. Hardware problem?

I'm wondering if I'm having a hardware problem. I was playing games and my computer totally froze. I ended up turning it off and trying to turn it back on. Computer will come on for a few seconds then turn off and back on. It'll keep doing this until I completely turn it off. Nothing shows on my montior, and my fans don't even spin (I can only hear the CPU fan turn on). Any suggestions? Maybe a motherboard fail or cpu? I don't know if it would be PSU since it initially turns on and keeps restarting.

On top of that, I just reseated everything and still getting boot loops. While reseating I tried cleaning as much as possible without an air compressor.

try flashing BIOS, had an issue myself that sounds a bit like what you describe.

First, reset the bios. If you can't get out of a boot loop... the post codes (beeps, digits on some boards) should indicate to you where the problem originates.

If it boots but fails to load windows, you may need to reinstall as Windows may be corrupted. Otherwise than that... you should have at least a pint to start from.

Pretty sure my motherboard is shot. Did bios reset etc. tested psu and gpu, reseated ram. Appreciate all the advice guys. If anyone has any motherboard suggestions for a good price let me know.
