New PC build won’t start

Please help me sort this issue out.

Parts: AMD Ryzen 3600 3.6GHZ -6 core processor.

MSI B450M Pro -VDH MAX MICRO ATX AM4

G skill Aegis 32 GB 2x 16GB DDR4

Kingston A4 240 GB SSD

ASUS RADEON RX 580 8GB ROG STRIX

CORSAIR TXM GOLD 550 W 80+ Gold certified semi modular ATX Power Supply

It won’t start, or the video card briefly lights up and it shuts down seconds after I press the power button. I’ve reassembled it twice, checked all connections thoroughly. Then, I continuously pressed the reset button along with the power button once, the CPU fan started running for about 15 seconds but it went out shortly after. To avoid further stress I set up an appointment at the Geek Squad to have it checked out in a week. I’m a complete newbie when it comes to PCs. Any insight is appreciated. I want this PC running soon!

Happy new year!

Try removing the parts one by one. Begin by removing the graphics card and see if it will boot. Then, try without the RAM, then Hard drive, then (less likely) the fans / RGBs. You might be able to find the root cause this way.

Keep me updated!

i got a bigger case, reinstalled everything and being able to work free was able to get it on. Just one of those things. Appreciate your reply!
