Do you have a different power supply that you can try? It's possible that the power supply died from something.

are there any lights on the motherboard itself?

are you saying the powersupply fan does not even spin?

make sure you have working power outlet/power cable before we move forward.

(easiest way to verify this is to take the power cable running from the PC and plug it into the monitor, and see if the monitor comes on)

try reseating RAM. Normally if this was a problem fans would still spin and/or you would get post beeps. But atleast we will be able to say we tried.

At this point i would be leaning towards the Powersupply as being the culprit.

If there is a friends/relatives PSU you could borrow to verify that would be your best bet, or pick one up at staples for $40

that is your call, but that is the next step i would take.

let me know if this solves your problem or not man,
