Def, also, what's your video card? If you have a spare PCI video card
kicking around I suggest you try that. I had a suped up machine that did
that because the power supply wasn't beefy enough...also, do you have a
power supply tester?
What does the manual / website say about a red light?
What's the manufacturer / model of the mobo?

Start by trying to boot with the bare minimum components. Plug in only the
CPU, one stick of RAM, video card, and keyboard. If you get absolutely
nothing on the screen, try replacing memory first.
