PC wont turn on completely

In the last week my computer started randomly rebooting while I was playing games. I thought it may be a overheating issue so I monitored temps and they were pretty normal maximum 72 ish. It became more and more frequent to the point it now happens every game in the middle of it. My monitors would go black and for up to 3 seconds I would still be able to hear sound like my teammate talking and then it would stop and reboot after like 30 seconds. I thought it may be driver issues so I updated drivers and it has made no difference. Today first game on after driver updates the same thing happened and now my PC will not start up. My motherboard lights are on and my case fans are spinning but my CPU fan isn’t and GPU isn’t turned on at all either. I have tried changing ram and trying it out 1 by 1 with no change. I have also tried resetting CMOS by the jumper method with nothing changing. If you guys have any suggestions on what to try let me know. Also i have never had PC issues before this week.

My motherboard turns on as I can see the lights and my case fans start spinning but my CPU fan doesn’t and GPU orang turn on

Possibly Motherboard failure

or if lucky one of the rails has gone down in the PSU

If possible borrow a PS to try.
