Yep I tried that still didn't work. I think the knob for the fan control was way down and the fans weren't on. I think the power supply overheated.
Is your surge protector also a UPS (uninteruptibiblebable power supply)? If so it just can't supply enough current to your monster. Try it plugging the PC into the wall directly (but unplug it when you've finished testing).

Thanks I'll try that. Here is a link to my psu. It has it's own fan control knob just for the two fans on it.
Usually fans on the PSU are independant of fan speed controls so I would not have thought that was the problem. I would suggest you switch off and unplug the power. Unplug the power cord from your tower also. Disconnect all the hard drives and optical drives and case fans and remove all cards except the display adaptor and one stick of RAM. Then plug the power cord firmly back into the PSU, connect and switch on. If nothing happens I would take your PSU in for testing. If you do get lights and fans then switch off and replace your extras one at a time - thee may be one device which is causing a problem or the whole combination may be just too much for the PSU.
Let us know how you go
