I will start with an obvious question - Did you plug it back in? You don't mention this in your question.
Now, presuming that you did plug it back in, I will offer some other suggestions.
Are you sure the outlet it is plugged into is working properly? You can tell easily by connecting something like a small lamp; if the lamp works then the outlet is live, if not, try using another outlet. It is also possible that you need to check where the other end of the plug goes into the back of the computer; make sure it is pushed in as far as it can reasonably go.
If none of these do the trick, try disconnecting the power cable from the computer entirely. Then press and hold down the "Start" button for a period of at least 10 seconds - this will release any static buildup that may be in the computer or power cable.
If you have another power cable, try switching it out with the present one. It is rare for these to fail, but there is a slight chance. If you don't have one, you may try using one from another computer component BUT, only if it matches exactly.
Now, the last and worst thing that could have happened - there is a possibility, very slight, that you may have fried your power supply. Power supplies are not as expensive as one might think ($40 - $100), depending on what type and maximum power (wattage) your computer needs. If you are at all handy with taking on such a project, go ahead and do so. Just take down the info about the power supply from the label on it and write down your computer make and model and go to a computer store and buy one yourself.
Otherwise, if none of these help you, your best bet is to take the whole computer to your local computer repair shop.

Took the cover off to clean the dust off the fans put it back together it will turn on and fans will run but wont boot

1) Side Cover off; Observe whether the fan that pushed air over the Processor is operating.

2) Remove all ram memory modules, and reseat them.
Doesn't take much to bump a ram memory module ('Stick') loose.

Although they may appear to be correctly seated in the their individual ram slots, it is just added assurance to remove, and replace them.

3) Computer was unplugged from power, and if you reached inside, you did observe Anti-Static Precautions, correct?

Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
You must relieve your body of Static BEFORE, reaching inside your computer.

Computer unplugged from power, Touch the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of Static.

As also has been stated, make sure all cables all plugged in tightly.

Computer wont turn on after lightening strike and i cant find the reset button on the inside of my sony vaio pcv-rx753. i have reset it twice in the past but now i must be blind. any ideas?

Those internal things are CMOS reset. that won't help you. but try this. Unplug the computer for a while, while cylcing the power button, then plug it back in. The power supply has an internal circut breaker and this will hold open as long as the power is still applied. once drained it will close and if it is still good you should be able to start it.

this link is a tutorial of how to get the side panel off,
to get the cd drive out, you need to do a couple more steps.

first, you will need to take off the top and other side panels. this can be done by looking at the top back of the case. there are two clips that hold the top panel on. push up on the two clips and the top part will slide back and you can pull up on the panel and it should come off.

Next, you should be able to push some more clips on the top to get the side panel off. it should fold down just like the first side.

then, you need to take off the front two panels. the bottom part should be just a couple clips on the inside front of the case, and the top clips will be revealed when you take off the bottom part.

after that is done, you should be able to unscrew the cd/dvd drive from the case and unplug the cables connected to it from the top where you removed the top panel.

then you should be done
