Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)
If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that
Beep codes Pc
More beep codes
Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.
If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.
If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.
Now connect one drive only and boot again.
Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.
Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem
If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

There could be a hardware problem on the computer if the power button led light is "Orange/ or amber", if you can open the computer, try removing one memory card at a time and see if the power button will change.

The 4 beeps suggests a memory issue. If you open the case and pop the memory modules out and then reinsert them it may clear the problem. One way to check if an individual memory stick is bad is to reboot as you put them in one by one.
I hope this helps.

here is the explanation of what can be possibly wrong,
1 long, 2 short - Video adapter error: Bad or improperly seated video card
Repeating beeps Memory error: Bad or improperly seated RAM
1 long, 3 short-Bad video RAM or video card not present
4 short Keyboard communication failure: Bad keyboard controller or keyboard
This is what the typical explanation is. To avoid assumption, i will need info on *********** board...thanks,

From your description this is a motherboard issue, in order to narrow down the problem unhook the hardware one at a time, swap the ram out to make sure it is okay, next if you have a video graphics card plugged into the motherboard remove it, if none of these remedy the situation it is more than likely the motherboard.
