It would have helped if you told us exactly what it did do. Did the fans come on? and stay on? did the cdrom drive light come on? If there was nothing happening at all the first thing i would replace is the power supply. Is the PS turned on at the switch? If the power supply is good i would pull all connectors and hace only MB, cpu, 1 stick of memory, and video and see if it will boot to the bios. If nothing still happens, change the memory stick. nothing happening againwhould have me reseating the cpu. Still nothing would make me check the cpu or replace the MB.
