Unplug everything except the floppy and graphics card... if still nothing then its more than likely the Motherboard.

I know the motherboard and PSU are meant to work together, but surely it could be a PSU failure........PSU failure does produce the same signs.

I have also seen reports in this forum where the normal on/off switch had failed.

If this makes sense, then you could try a borrowed PSU or with great care for your own safety, try bridging the on/off switch with a judiciously placed piece of wire!
