What are some other symptoms? Does it beep when you turn it on (this indicates your RAM is bad or is not inserted properly). Also check your IDDE Cables. Make sure that IDDE #1 is connected to your hard-drive and not your CD-ROM.
If you suspect the power-supply. Check the voltage switch found on the back of you computer case where the power-supply is located, and ONLY IF YOU ARE FIMILIAR WITH POWER-SUPPLIES check the fuse. This is not difficult, but DO NOT EVER in any instance mess with a power-supply further than this. Unless you are ceritfied to. A power-supply holds enough power to kill a person. Even when it is turned off and unplugged.
Hope this helps.

You can disable floppy seek in the BIOS, but I doubt that's the problem.
i got only an error that said no floppy and i couldnt get further
If you're not getting ANY beeps, then BIOS isn't posting. I'd start by clearing the BIOS. Either short the jumper on the BIOS, or remove the battery for five minutes (with the power disconnted).
A typical motherboard battery:
If clearing the BIOS doesn't work, you probably have a DOA (dea on arrival) power supply or motherboard. Most likely the PS.

I'm going to ask a couple of friends for suggestions. Also I'll let a couple other techs in here know about your problem.

Remove the mobo from the case, place on a piece of cardboard and connect only the cpu with fan/heatsink,ram,video card, psu,case speaker and switch. Then connect monitor,keyboard and mouse (ps2)
Verify jumper settings on mobo
Verify the cpu fan is connected to the correct header on mobo
Verify the 4 pin connection from the psu to mobo is connected (in addition to the 20 pin of course)
If no go trouble shoot/swap out psu.
If no go post back

Hope this works though. Because I'm almost out of ideas.

You most likely had a case short most times this ia caused by a standoff in a bad place and touching the underside of the mobo. You have to check this carefully and make sure all standoffs line up with screwholes in the mobo.
If you accomplish the above then its time to install in the case again, once in the case try to boot into bios just to make sure, at this point I usually install the drives and run memtest for three passes for a quick check before loading the OS.
Lightninghawk you don't have to know everthing thats why we work as a team Now lets hope we can get neilp4453 up and running.

You should not run it if the cpu fan is not running. I suspect there had to be some sort of short or a trace on the underside of the mobo got damaged and burned thru causing the cpu fan to stop.
