Default Computer won't boot.

Hi,

I was on my computer yesterday when I got a BSOD and then I computer shut off. After that I was unable to boot it up again. When I power up my monitor stays in standby mode, my motherboard has power to it as my optical drives are working. My monitor still works...I've taken out my graphics card and tried to use my integrated gfx but still nothing. Was wondering if anyone has an idea of what could be wrong or steps i could take to figure out whats wrong?
