Default computer wont boot

OK so weirdest thing, I leaned over my keyboard and my phone fell out and landed on my keyboard and my computer shut down. Now I cant get it to boot. I don't know how my phone falling on my keyboard could shut it down so I'm assuming its a crazy coincidence haha. I've tried everything to try and get it to boot and have had no luck, I don't know what to do and am hoping someone on here might have some ideas. I've tried booting one hard drive at a time, I've checked all connections on the back and inside the case, heck i even pulled all the components out and put them all back in haha. I hit power and I just get a blank screen, no bios, no beeps, nothing

May have damaged the keyboard in some manner. Have you swapped out the KB for one you know is good?

sorry I should have been more specific everything turns on fans, lights, I can even hear the DVD drive but I dont hear the hdds and I get no video at all. I did change keyboards to a wired one and it use to flash when I would turn the computer on but that doesn't even do anything now.

Since I have two graphic cards I also tried both of those one at a time and still nothing. I did noticed though that if I turn power off at the PSU and switch it back on then my keyboard lights will flash for a second. The computer turns on and stays on but doesn't appear to be doing anything, like I said I can't hear activity from the hard drives and no video

It's beginning to sound like a power spike. Was there a thunder storm in your area when this happened?
