If your pressing the power button and nothing is happening but your getting a green light on the power supply (which is a good sign), then I think your motherboard might have fried.

I hate to say it but this is common with Windows Vista machines.. WV is a mistake that should have never went public.

I could be wrong, but.. hopefully some other people might have somemore suggestions I didn't think of.
