HP VECTRA WONT START

I have an old HP Vectra that I got from my brother. I plugged it in, and the cd rom started acting weird, and the the hdd lights and everything went on. I unplugged it. Plugged it back in, now it wont start. I unplugged everything from the mobo except the powersupply and a stick of RAM and still no results, help is appreciated.

Do you at least see the BIOS screen or something? If you do see something, what is it?

First disconnect the PSU, then try replacing the CMOS battery. If that doesn't help, try another PSU.

try resetting the bios with a jumper; if this does not work, check if the cpu is inserted completely in the socket, and check and reseat all the plugs.
