I can only help troubleshoot a bit:

1 - do the fans power on?

2 - do you hear the hard drive working after a while?

3 - did you seat your CPU correctly and does it have thermal paste applied to it between it and the heatsink?

I recently had a sudden problem where my computer wasn't even going to the initial post screen even though everything would power on and when I re-seated and re-pasted the CPU and its heatsink everything was fixed for me - but your issue could be many other things still

please try to re-seat all the power connections to the mobo and fans and other parts too, it may do the trick
