you may be using the wrong type or bad memory, jumpers could be wrongly set (speed settings, CPU Voltage, multiplier etc), The bios could be bad, almost everything can cause this symptom.

I would suggest unplugging the Power Supply from the board if its fan spins once that is done, plug it back in and remove all the expansion cards(modems, sound card ect.) If it still doesnt work then youve got a bad system board most likely, if it does work, simply insert one card at a time until it will no longer boot and there is your bad piece of hardware.

In service to the PC.

Maybe If you try to check the Power Supply, maybe it is dead.
If the Power Supply is OK is almost sure you motherboard or processor is Capoot

Check the 110/220 switch on the power supply. Sometimes it gets moved. If that does not help try changing the cards, memory and processor. If still nothing the motherboard is likely DOA.
