The lights & DVD tell you it is receiving power. But no BIOS or splash screen?
When its ON.... will the Caps Lock or Num Lock keys turn their appropriate lights on and off?
If not, then the CPU may be gone, but we wall know CPU's are not normally the problem.

I would definitely reccomend blowing out the dust and making sure the CPU fan is spinning. It may be overheating...

Let us know what you do.... I'm curious
