Not having much luck then !!

Start with the obvious, has it worked before and have you done anything to it / installed any hardware recently ?

Does it sound like the hard drive is spinning ? Take off the cover and make sure all the leads etc are firmly in place and also check BIOS to make sure the primary hard drive is set to auto detect.

Post back with any more information you can, history etc

Yep, sounds like a faulty power supply unit ! Does the power light still come on and the fan start (as per your original post) ?

As a last resort, you could strip everything out of the PC, re-fit everything and see what happens. I have seen a case once where a graphics card was not seated properly and this was causing the PC not to boot up.
