If this doesn't solve it, try removing the cpu and reseating it. Do the same for the memory and any PCI/AGP/PCIi cards you may have installed in the system.
If that still doesn't work, disconnect everything from the motherboard, leaving only the video card in an AGP/PCIe slot (if you have one). Remove all IDE/SATA cables from the motherboard. All PCI cards. Basically try just the minimal amount of components that are needed to get a picture on the screen and into the bios. If that works, then it's trial and error to see which component is causing the hangup.

This just allows you to really narrow down any problems that arise, because if it can't boot out of the box then there are only a few things that can be causing it: CPU, Mobo, RAM, Video Card.
**EDIT** -- Also don't forget to plug the monitor cable into the mobo/video card. Forgotten that before and was looking everywhere for the problem until I saw that blasted little cord laying next to the mobo.
