Have you checked the connections to your motherboard?

YEP THE ARE ALL CONNECTED.
I TRIED A DIFFERENT MOTHERBOARD AND IT STILL WON'T TURN ON PROPELY.

If the fans spin and the computer does nothing then I would think either there is a problem with your motherboard or the more likely the power supply lead to the motherboard is not seated properly or the third possiblity is something has happened to the power supply. There may still be power going to your hard drive etc but if the motherboard doesn't start up then the entire system wouldn't do anything. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the motherboard power lead, if that does nothing then use a multimeter to check that their is actaully power coming out of the power supply, if you don't have one but have access to another computer swap the supplies over and see what happens.

I would have thought if the fan spins then it would be getting power.

I'm not sure if this is possible but the reason I thought swapping power supplies might be an option is to rule out 2 things 1 that the power connector on the power supply isn't faulty and 2 that the part of the power supply that provides power to the motherboard isn't faulty
