Exclamation Big Problem

If anyone could help me with this problem it would be extremely helpful. When I boot my computer up, the fans turn on and run, but I get no power light, and no picture. The monitor light is orange, which is what it does when it's not getting a signal or it's in standby. The CD-ROM drive lights are on, but when you push the button to eject, the CD-ROM will not eject. Also, none of the lights on the keyboard light up. I think I may have a motherboard problem, but I am not sure. Anybody have any ideas?

have you ever overclocked this computer ? because the symptoms sound the same as a computer that has died from overclocking

The problem ended up being a bad power supply, thanks for your help guys.

check all hardware on your computer to see if everything still work. many times power supplies will damage hardware when they go out.
