    There are no error messages and not beeps. The fans come on then seem to slow down but nothing on the screen at all

You either have a bad processor or a bad mainboard, most likely its the mainboard.

You definitely have a hardware issue so you need to go through a process of elimination to figure out what it is.

1) try another video card (if you are using a video card)
2) try your on-board video (if you have it)
3) take a look at your motherboard to see if any capacitors look bulged
4) try another power supply (although the computer is getting power, it might not be getting "good" power)

Usually if it is the memory you will at least get a beep. This sounds like it is probably your mobo if it isn't your video card.

Operating systems doesn't boot (BIOS beep codes)?

Do you have video going to your monitor? If not the beeps mean you have a bad memory stick in there. If you have video the beeps are the bios telling you that its not set right. More than likely you have it set to run too fast. Go into your bios find where the processor speed is located and choose a lower freq. rate. Its probably set too high for the memory you have.

Won't start bios at start up

Disconnect everything but the RAM, Video and Keyboard and see if it will boot to BIOS. If it does let the BIOS boot remove the RAM and see if that allows BIOS to come up. If it doesn't there is a problem with the Motherboard. If it does with the RAM removed you have incorrect RAM installed or too much.

It sounds like it could be video related, do you have an AGP or PCIe display card? Have you tried reseating it? Just pull out the card and pop it back in and please let me know if it helps.
