Default My pc won't start

Hi, a while ago i built my pc, it has been great but now it won't start. At first it started to freeze within windows, which was annoying. then it started to freeze within startup, which was worse. but now it won't start at all. i turn the switch on, the processor fan goes, the hard drive spins, makes a "thinking" noise, but there is no beep and startup. i could leave it for hours and it wouldn't do anything. it was suggested that it was the graphics card as it wasn't "posting". so i took it out, put it back and then it worked, but then stopped working. i then got another graphics, which i knew worked but i have come to no avail. Any ideas? its been 3 weeks now.

do the fans come on real quick and then go off?

you might also have the power plugs to the motherboard not plugged in, correctly, or tightly.

does anything load at startup, if not maybe your motherboard is fried.

the fans stay on, and the hard drive keeps spinning, and nothing loads, nothing appears to be recognised, the monitor does not switch on
