I am having trouble getting my desktop to start up. I did a hard reset a few days ago and it appeared to start up normally, however my monitor was not working so I couldnt see if anything came up. I hooked it up to a different screen today and tried to start it back up and Im having the same issue. Hard rest is not fixing it this time. It tries to start for a second then powers down,nothing shows on the screen.

HOW DO I USE DIAGNOSTICS?
