one of my fans on the top of the computer were going out so i unplugged it for a day and started playing my games again, i woke up the next morning and it wouldnt not go past the bios, it would goto the system check black screen and freeze, so i reset my bios and tried again, now it is stuck at the mobo logo screen and wont go past, and i also see that my power supply fans are not working, and there is no way it could have overheated b/c it is well cooled, also my computer was plugged into the wall w/o a power surge, also it did boot up 1 time and the scrren whent black and froze at the bios again...

Power supply fans not spinning is usually a bad sign.
I would suggest testing the power supply, you can do this with a power supply tester. Or you can find an compatible power supply in another computer (friend/family) and see if you can borrow it to test.

Hope this helps.

Can you borrow a friends, co-workers, family members power supply and test that?
Or even borrow a power supply tester and check it that way.
