Your sure the whole PC isn't stuck in suspend mode?

Light fan etc will all be on but it will appear dead, the simplest fix for it if it is stuck in suspend or hibernate is to clear the bios.

Of course if you have tweaked the bios to the nth degree or have some weird custom settings this might not be a great fix for you.

i took the cmos battery out to try and reset bios but that didnt work it happened to me about 2 months ago and all i did was cleaned out the inside of it and reseated a few things in tower and it worked but nothing seems to work this time

Can you get any onscreen menus to work? If so then it could be your PC. Also disconnect from PC and turn on, see if it comes up with no video input (or such).
