PC won’t turn on

So I went to install my new CPU cooler today and when I put everything back together my pc wouldn’t start. There is a light on the power button which means I still have some hope to get my pc running. Does anyone have any tips or guides?

Did you tighten the cooler down all the way?

Did you tighten it down correctly, as directed?

Is the CPU EPS 8 pin wire connected to the Motherboard?

Is the CPU fan power connected to the correct place on the Motherboard?

Did you bend any pins on the CPU during installation?

Well, the only thing left is to take it apart again and inspect the pins, make sure you have the 2 arrows aligned, cpu with socket.

When you tighten it down make sure you apply equal pressure on all 4 points.

Make sure the screws are all the way tight.

Some Motherboards will not power up if the CPU fan power is not connected.

All will not power up if the CPU 8 pin power is not connected properly.
