Is it beeping? It is either a dead CPU, dead motherboard if it is not beeping. If you hear it beeping, then it is most likely bad RAM. If you have anything plugged into any pci slot, take that out and try to get it to POST.

Mine just did the same thing. I pulled the card that says "phone" out of the pci slot and it started right up! Thanks.
