Umm parts can go bad at any time. I had a board run perfect one day the next gave me a bunch of minidump errors cause I fried a ram slot.
Although problem with the memory theory is your drives should still open.
Did you get any power surges lately? Do the drive motors spins?
Also calm down a bit man. I'd suggest you take it to a computer shop until you get some more experience with minor troubleshooting. Unless you have spare parts to test your psu,memory,board,cpu,gpu thats your only option.
