Did you make any dramatic changes to your comp? Like install drivers or software upgrade hardware? You change the boot sequence?

Can't even get into your bios ?? what you mean is there no power even going into it ??

Can you hear fans going?
Any response from the monitor?
Any thing come on the screen at all?
What were you doin before it screwed up? (e.g: You were surfing net and you recieved a Blue screen, then installed an updated driver, and waited for the restart and it never did ??)

If you can answer the above questions we might get a better idea of whats happening.

Well, it could be a multitude of problems. Usually, I'd reseat the RAM. Something might of obstructed one pin and it probably needs a RAM reseat.
