    Try replacing the memory stick or if there is more than one take one out, swap them around and see if that fixes the problem.

    Is the bios battery flat?
    it's about 3/4 inch across, take it out and test it, it should be about 3v. You'll have to reset the clock on the computer if you get it going again.

    Is there any lights on or any activity at all?

    Have you checked to see if the power button is working ok and is connected to the motherboard?

    All the fans or just the one in the power supply? If the power supply is starting up check you have a 12v and 5v supply on one of the spare power leads, check for voltage between the black and red wire and then the black and yellow wires.

    Sounds like the motherboard is powering up but not posting. I would try disconnecting the cd/ dvd drives, floppy drive and harddrive and see if it's still not posting. If it does, switch off, connect one drive at a time and check again. If it doesn't I would say you have a motherboard fault because you,ve already tried the bios battery and memory.

    Either motherboard or processor faulty most likely then. Have you got another processor to try?
