The graphics card may have failed so try to borrow one first just to see if that's what the problem is.

RAM must be present in a machine for it to boot. Are you getting any signals (beep-codes) that confirm that it indeed is trying to start?

Sure i'll try that soon, as my graphic card require me to unscrew some parts in order for me to take it out, Hopefully it will work.
Cheers!

There's no beep sound or anything like that but everything inside seems to be running well, like the lights are on and stuff

To hear beeps onboard speaker must be present.
Even with ram not present the computer will start and stays on but with no image on the screen.
I suspect overheating.
List the full system specs.

Just because fans and drives spin up and LEDs flash doesn't mean it's working. It just means those devices are getting voltage. It doesn't mean there's any computin' goin' on.

Did anything happen to it or did you make any changes between the last time it worked OK and the first time it didn't?

Be sure to unplug the power cord when you're working inside the case. Even when off the power supply provides a small charge to the motherboard and it's possible to damage things when removing and reinstalling them.
