Remove components one by one yo find which one broke.
I've had the same behavior with broken cpu in the past when my friend's pc fell off my sofa.
Yeah I disconnected all the sata disks and the graphic card (using the motherboard's dvi output to test the display), still the same :-/
The vaccum cleaner hypothesis is possible but I live in a nordic country, not sure if it applies as dry...
@TheKarlisk Not sure I understand your 2nd hypothesis : I did use the new graphic card during an hour. The cpu was at 70° which is warm indeed, but if that was the issue then wouldn't the computer have crashed at that moment rather than not boot? For your last suggestion wouldn't I see a console error on the screen still?
Put the dust back in :D
JhonDoe28934ydo a cmos reset. and power it up without the graphics card. post your result
out of curiosity, which card did you get?
The only thing happening apart from the fans rotating is the disk usage led switching on for a fraction of a second, then nothing lights up anymore

if it boots, put other sticks in.
