What do you mean by plugging it in? Where did you purchase your Pi? Are you using the Micro USB port for power? What are you using for a monitor? Have you checked the Noobs card to make sure that there is still an image on it?
Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good.
You say you have noobs is it the full noobs or noobs lite (network install only) and (sounds silly but easily forgotten ) unzipped noobs from its archive? If you're using a pc then you can just drag and drop the files onto the card as long as fat format (some tutorials will ask to use win 32 disk imagery) once copied across put into your pi and power up connect to network for all available os's, good luck hope that this helps.
Redownload and follow the NOOBS setupadas82 wrote:just plugged my new raspberry pi 3 nothing happening download noobs and everything I think if anyone can thanks
I assume that is what you tried but no harm in doing it again. Maybe just reformat the SD card and copy across again.
Also have a quick look at you power supply, it should have an output rating on it. 5V@2.5A or 5V at 500mA sort of thing.
It needs to be annoyingly high on a raspberryPi3 even though it doesn't seem to actually use that much in general use. The link post to troubleshooting may help if you can get your head around all the info there. When I read it it didn't make much sense and just got confusing after a bit.
It was a few months back iirc, couldn't get my Zero booting with my cards.
