Default Won't Boot

So I air in a canned my computer, worked fine all weekend, shut it off Sunday and got home Thursday, tried to turn it on, it would power up but no POST beep and no image on my monitor. So I decided I was too tired to mess with it, and today I swapped out video cards to see if that was the problem and still nothing. I'm starting to think that my mobo may have fried, anyone have any other ideas before I start shopping for a new mobo?

EDIT: I just thought that maybe it's my cpu.. I lapped it when I air in a canned my computer and maybe that screwed something up..

Try the usual steps. One stick of RAM and no other peripherals attached. Check your CPU, RAM and Video Card are seated properly. Reset CMOS.

long shot here but disconnect all items connected to your pc including the internal cd, hdd's reconnect everything one by one checking each connection. then connect the rest of the external items (ie kb mouse) and try again.
