Power goes no further then fan and PSU

Any idea what this could be?

Press the power buttons...power light comes on and stays on. System fan works and the psu fan is moving, but thats it...no power to anything else..

any ideas?

ikle_pixie, have you confirmed that the power is going nowhere else by measuring the volts on the spare drive connectors?

Try these:
Check all your leads first.
Have you any beeps on startup?
Are you getting POST?
Is your monitor saying that there is no signal? Have you added anything to your pc lately?
Has anyone else in your family owned up to anything?
Is your PC surge protected?

When did this happen? was it after a storm? if it was could be a faulty card. try removing them one by one starting with the modem card.

If IDE cables have been removed and replaced, make sure they are in the right way round, I have had similiar problems which have been resovled by this method. Make sure all cards, memory are correctly seated in their corresponding slots. MIght be worth reseating them.
