Hye, there's may be a problem with the memory dimm! You will have to get it checked by a technician!
Normally you would get a variety of beeps to indicate a memory problem. Sounds to me like either your VGA/DVI output is knackered or your monitor isn't plugged in correctly. Try twiddling the cable that goes from your monitor into the back of your computer. This has happened plenty of times to me over the years and the monitor doesn't always display a 'No signal' message if the lead is loose.
I never read the bit below about the keyboard and mouse not working.

Could be a possible Motherboard issue then? The one time this happened to me I had to replace the MB. None of the USB ports worked and the computer wouldn't boot. :(
I am going to pass by a technician later today to drop it off
Thing is
The light turns on which indicates that it boot and the fan goes on but no keyboard/mouse wirj
Even the DVDrom opens
Really weird
Help appreciated
Will let you know what happened as soon as things are fixed :)
