Yesterday my dad was trying to install an air conditioner in my room, and he was messing around with the plugs and even more scaringly, placed something slightly wet on the top of the pc (not directly above the holes but near), and then when I turned in my monitor i was immediately met with my whole entire screen frozen and my mouse and keyboard didnt have a connection to the pc despite it being plugged so I turned the pc off, and every time I turned it on from then I was met with the cycle of turning it for 2 seconds (the fans would only move for 2 seconds as well) and turning off.
My dad definitely unplugged the pc while it was on.

Specs:
Gpu: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-6500 CPU @ 3.20GHZ
RAM: 8 GB
Power supply: EVGA 500B
Videos of it turning off and on and the inside of the tower:

Did the computer get banged at all.

 

No point in us potentially duplicating suggestions so can I ask have you tried any remedial steps yourself already, if yes, what and was there any change.

I do believe Ive done all the basics, cleaning the pc, different plugs, turning off and on, waiting while I sleep and trying again in the morning. As to whether or not there was a bang I just asked my dad if it made a noise or did anything weird while he was working an he said no.

Crossed wires, you would have heard a bang and so I'm quite sure that you would have mentioned it in your OP.

 

If the computer got physically banged a memory stick ( or two ) the GPU or an internal connection may have come loose, all plug ins need to be removed and reseated and likewise all internal connections need to be checked for security.

 

While doing the above you should check for anything that could be causing a short, a bare wire, a stray screw or a loose I/O plate being three things to check.

 

Worse case scenario here would be that there was more moisture than was thought and a system short has occurred,
