Default Booting Problems

Alright my friend has this Dell computer, he says that on Saturday night he was using it, he then put it on standby went to bed and it didnt work Sunday. It will not even boot, at all. There is power coming to the power supply, the fan starts moving, and a light on the mother board indicates it is reciveing power. Other than that nothing else shows any sign of reciveing power. I am totally lost as to what could be wrong. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Well make sure his monitor is plugged in and it might be that he needs a new PSU.
