It would help to know a few things; Is the power supply coming on at all? - Fan should be running, front panel light(s) coming on at all, etc.
You also didn't mention if it is a fairly standard clone or a brand-name system, model number, etc.

If there is no sign of life when turning on, it is most likely the power supply - the low-end units are incredibly cheaply made and prone to failure at random.
If it is a standard unit and you have no life signs, replace it. They are available from $10-100 dollars.

If you do have signs of life, watch the monitor screen for any signs of video.
If there is any kind of display, the BIOS is at least reacting and if the system is over 5 years old, replace the coin cell battery located on the board. These are widely available- even Walmart.
Obviously, the unit shuld be powered off, unplugged and you should touch some bare metal part of the chassis to discharge any static you might be carrying around.

If you have any worthwhile information, you might want to post it - it kinda, sorta helps.

Fuse rating on the motherboard

A) Didn't know there was one. A fuse.
Unless you are talking SMD fuses. (Surface Mount Device. And they are also SMT. Surface Mount Technology)

B) Kinda' hard to know without the manufacturer name, and model number of the motherboard. But, the motherboard would have to be sitting in front of me, to determine the rating of the SMD fuse, anyway. (IF, this is what you are referring to)

If it is a gamer motherboard perhaps a fuse was used in the power circuit of the motherboard.
Again, do not know what motherboard you are referencing to.
