    Hmm

    I've come to switch on the pc this morning and I get absolutly no response when pressing power.

    Not even fan spin.

    I've re-seated 24pin and 8pin power to the motherboard and checked the FP cables to the motherboard. All are attached correctly and I've tried powering up with the motherboard power button.

    I've reset the cmos and taken the battery out but still nothing when I try to power up.
    All I have is a red light next to the memory modules I think its the ACPI led.
    I have also swapped out the memory

    I've checked for leaks and anything that could have shorted the board but there is nothing.

    I wasn't pushing the voltage much and there is no physical issues. Anyone know what this could mean.

    I would get the board out of the case and off the motherboard tray and try again. Also if possible test your hardware in another PC to be sure none of it is faulty.

    And, try clearing your CMOS again using the method I outline in step #2 here

    I have taken the Cmos battery out for an hour or so, popped it back in and its now booted up.

    Glad to hear it!

    I wonder why the problem occured. Hopefully it won't happen again. If it does then you may need to tweak some voltages slightly etc. Also, if not using the latest BIOS, go ahead and flash. Sometimes downgrading to the last but one BIOS has worked for me with other manufacturers. I remember flashing to an early BIOS for my MSI NForce 4 board because it was the only one with a DDR1 166 multi (not 1066, the Nforce let you run RAM lower than the FSB). Newer isn't always better.

    Superb! Sometimes a clear CMOS or reboot is all that is needed to fix many things :)
