Dead PC

Suddenly my PC wont boot up--led lights flicker continuously on CD drives on the front of tower and a similar but steady led light on monitor but that is all. Any ideas?

Check the internal power cables, particularly the one which powers the motherboard.

Leds Ok.
any sound of fans starting or HDD / floppy drives?

There is an initial whoosh for about a second and then nothing

Check leads as above and make sure no external drives, printers etc are coupled.

but Sounds as if your PSU is dying / dead.

If you disconnect the power leads to the CD / DVD drive will it bot to a screen?
