had a new motherboard, processer, 2 memory sticks, and power supply installed: now the lcd monitor, keyboard, and mouse do not "power" on. it's as if they're not connected to the pc.

presumably the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer

Sounds like whoever rebuilt it made a hash of it, and the machine isn't booting. Take it back and tell them to fix it. They've not done the job you've paid them for

if the computer power lead is arcing when you plug it in, it rather sounds like you have a faulty power supply in it
You need to take it back and get it sorted. A bad PSU could break the rest of the components - and more seriously, if it is arcing then you have a fire risk

Whoever did it for you has not done the job. TAKE IT BACK

don't do it yourself unless you know how to fit a PSU - and where to buy one
BUT that would be inadvisable as there may well be something else blown as well
