Default Computer wont work?!

Ok was on this computer last night and this morning it stopped working. When I push the power button it turns on but no beeps or anything and a blank screan. But on my motherboard (dfi lanparty nf4) at the bottom left theres a red light that turns on which I have no clue what it means. and to the right of the ram a orange light turns on.
heres my comp specs.
amd 64 3200
dfi lanparty nf4
2 x 512 corsair xms
thermaltake silent 480w
gigabyte 6800ultra pcie x16

I think your mobo has the Reset-CMOS jumper. If so, use that jumper to reset your CMOS. If not, you can pull your CMOS battery for a couple minutes, which will have the same result.

By the sounds of things, it is motherboard related, so I would start with the CMOS reset. If that doesnt work, then we can try some other things.

Firt i think that you should try another PSU if the same thing happen, then you should consider the CPU and the board.

comptia A+

try to trow in a pci video card, and see if you can see anything, might be a setting for the card in the bios. Take out the current video card and see what happens. Might not be motherboard related.
