Default at work, need help quick

I have a computer that I built here about 10 months ago. I spent about $200 and put some spare parts laying around in it. It was for my secretary and I put Vista on it. She let it run out without activating it and ever since it has been sitting around. It worked fine up until this point.

I have Windows 7 now that I am trying to put on it. However, the monitor does not come on, keyboard and mouse also do not light up. I reset the CMOS and nothing changed. What is my next step?

Specs of what I bought:

GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX
Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz LGA 775 65W
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
LG 22X DVDĪR DVD Burner Black SATA Model GH22NS30

My PSU is one I found in an old computer, about 300W. Using integrated GPU.

It smells like someone is welding inside my office with the new PSU. Not good.
