Default Re: My computer wont boot!

I am having a similar problem, except that my fans, lights and hard drives all start up normally. Nothing else happens though, my monitor falls asleep after a few seconds, and neither mouse nor keyboard lights turn on. I've tried resetting CMOS, pulled ram, switched video cards and air dusted it out.

If nothing turns on at all its most likely your mother board or your power supply since those are the two components that directly affects all the others.
