Default Computer won't even boot up

my friend's computer has every plugged in right, but when he turns the comp on, the fans won't even spin and nothing even moves

specs:
amd 3200+ venice
abit AV8 mobo
eVGA 6800GT AGP

1.) he overclocks from 350/1000 to 400/1100 (he claims he didnt go that high, but i doubt it)
2.) he brings it back down after artifacting (to stock speeds)
3.) he has computer problems, so he goes into t he BIOS and selects the second profile (he said it was blank)...he was using the first one before (first profile, that is)
