Any ideas why my PC wont get to POST?

All the lights turn on in the case, fans spin up, and nothing on the screen. Plugged in the system speaker and not a beep.

I have tried the following:

1. removed and reseated all DIMMS as well as trying to just leave one in. They are in the correct bank.

2. unplugged all components except for monitor

3. tried resetting CMOS via the on board jumper

4. moved my video card to the other PCI-E slot

5. removed the power cable, held the power button while reconnecting power

6. Unplug my monitor from power (to reset) and tried both VGA and DVI connections

    If the mobo has onboard video, try taking out the pci card.

    Remove mobo and check for anything that might be under it and shorting to the case.

    Make sure front panel connector (power, reset button etc) is properly seated and that the reset button wires aren't switched.

    Remove the front panel to make sure the power button in the panel isn't holding the power button on the chassis down partially.

    I've run across all of these so there are a few other ideas for you to try.

    Try taking out your Power supply into another computer and see if it turns on. It should, unless it is broken. That was my problem b4 but now i got a new power supply.

    in case you could not get into bios then you definitely have gotten to purchase a sparkling motherboard, a similar got here about to my pal the different day, i'm suspicious his PSU couldn't take the load, yet we replaced his motherboard & all is well-known back now.

    You might have a dead mobo or a dead proc.
