Computer doesn’t do anything but allow the cpu fan and power supply fan to turn on.

I am working on a computer for someone who said that they droped thier computer. (I'm not sure how much of a drop) When the power button is pushed, the processor fan and the power supply fan kicks on, and the hard drive tries to spin up, but nothing else happens. (not even a beep) Thinking they might be loose, I took the memory and the video card out and replaced them, but that wasn't the problem. I figured it might be the motherboard (or posibly the power supply is to weak to power anything else up?) If it is a motherboard, can I just replace it, and if so how do I tell what kind of motherboard it has. It seems to be a fairly late model. The case has -Jan 02- stamped on the inside of it and it has a sticker that says -intel inside- and -pentium 4-
