It sounds like a hardware problem. If you have more than one stick of RAM try removing one and booting the computer. If it does not boot remove the other stick and replace the first stick. Right now we are trying to eliminate possibles.
Next or first inspect the capacitors on the motherboard. The tops should be smooth, and the sides should not be bowed. Notice if any fluids are leaking.
If you have and old video card install it to see if the video adapter may bee damaged.
Remove all cards except for the video. Rule them out.
That is a start. Let me know what you find out.
