Default PC NOT Booting!

Yep, for NO reason my computers ****ing up. Playing Company of Heroes and it crashes (like normal). Hard reboot. Now I can't boot up my pc...yeeeeeep.

Auto-Detecting Pri Master..ATAPI CDROM
Auto-Detecting Pri Slave...ATAPI CDROM
Auto-Detecting 5th Master...

Then it sticks there....
One time I just left it, and it went beep (like it normally would do).

But then it said please insert boot device or some crap.

I hate this kinda crap I have no idea about, and I just want my ******n PC back.

What on earth is the problem....

Take out memory, blow out the slots of any and all dust. Clear CMOS.

Attempt to turn on.
No turn..
bare Bone test.
Un attach all internal components except ram cpu and video card. Attempt to get successful POST. If it POSTs you can add one component one by one until it does not POST. And that part you last added would most likely be the bad part causing no POST.
