Default Blue screen of death, computer would not boot...

It happened few days ago.
I was using my computer, then suddenly it had a blue screen of death. I had to shut it down.

Later, I tried to turn it on again (several times). However it never would boot (Not even BIOS, nothing comes up). Only fans and lights on the front of PC lights up when I try to turn on computer.

What can I do to fix this? Can anyone give me some idea, suggestion?

Easiest thing to do is a bare bones test.

Disconnect everything except video card, 1 stick of ram and cpu heatsink.

If you get 1 beep for good POST, add one device at a time, turning on each time to see what is at fault.

if it won't even post with the bare minimum then you will want to try a known good psu or memory stick.

wow.. thank you!! I don't know why I didn't think of this before.
I diconnected HD, tried to boot it, it was able to boot BIOS.
Then I turned it off, connected HD and turned on computer again. And it worked!!!
Thanks man!
