I would check to to make sure your CPU cooler is still firmly mounted onto the CPU. I am told that the majority of the time you get startup but no video it is usually processor related. I had the same problem that I was able to fix today and mine turned out to be RAM related.

Have you tried running without a video card? In a no boot up situation you usually want to use as little componants as possible to start off. This way you can narrow down areas that could be the source of the problem.

You could have knocked something loose. Listen to your internal speaker and see if you get any beeps. If you don't have any beeps it's probably something CPU related. Make sure everything is properly seated. If you do get beeps, look at your mobo's manual to see what each type of beep corresponds to. If nothing is working, trying running with it ONE stick of ram, video card and CPU, unplug anything else and see if you get anything. Last resort could be that you knocked a screw loose or something and the mobo is shorting out on something, maybe try running it from outside the case on cardboard or something. Good luck.
