Black Screen of Death? New parts and now PC wont start.

Hey all!

I've just recently started to update an old build of mine. I've replaced my old CPU and Motherboard. I still have my old GPU and Power Supply (850 W).

So let get to the problem. When I initially started up my PC (with my new CPU and MB) I was met with what was to be expected; windows start up and loading screen. I was able to successfully login and as Windows started to load my start up programs it went into, what I can only explain as "Sleep Mode" All lights and fans on my MB were still on. However... The front lights on my case are no longer on. I wasn't able to re-start of power off, so I had to manually turn the power off at the power supply.

Once I tried to turn it back on again I am greeted with nothing. No BIOS start up or anything. I've checked my memory, I've unplugged all and everything connected via USB. And basically get no response. When power is on it seems to start up as normal. But after a few seconds my fans idle down.
Any help would be greatly Appreciated!

my build:
AMD - Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
MSI - B350M GAMING PRO Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard
Mushkin - Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
EVGA - GeForce GTX 580 3GB Video Card
