Sounds like the first thing you need to check is if you are getting all the voltages out of your power supply.

Here is a link to the pinouts of the connectors. if you have a faulty PS replacing the CPU or motherboard will not help.

Is there a green LED on your motherboard at all?

You said the fan comes on. Which fan? You should have a CPU fan, a case fan, and a power supply fan.

Chances are that your power supply is toast.

Although you could try removing either one of your rams (if you have 2), and unplugging any optional device plugged onto the motherboard (Hard drive, dvd player)

In the worse case, your motherboard could be broken and need to be replaced.

Did anything particular happen before it stopped powering up?

Just installed a new Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard, 4 GB RAM (Corsair DDR3 1333), AMD Phenom II multi-core processor (X6 1055T), 750 W power supply, Maxtor 500 GB hard drive and a Blu Ray DVD Drive. ...

motherboard to hard drive leads

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

hope this helps

Fan does not come on

Try plugging in the fan into a different fan header to test to see if it functions. Also it may not turn on right away.
