when you turn on the PC from the power button on the front of the case does it turn on? ie, does the power supply come on? if not try a working power supply.
or does it start and just not show anything on the monitor? does the monitor turn on or does it turn off and the LED flashes?

please provide as much troubleshooting details as you can.
