Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.
It sounds like you may have fried your motherboard if you heard a loud pop when you turned it on. Pull all the cards and memory off the motherboard and turn it on. If you do not hear any beeps then, the motherboard is broken.
Would you like to be a Dell Community Rockstar?
