Motherboard isn't working

Earlier today I was using my computer when it turned off. When I turn it back on the fans and hard drive sound like they want to boot but they just sit idle after a few seconds. I removed the CMOS battery and put it back in, but it didn't help. I reseated both the memory and cpu and that didn't help either. I tried a different power supply and it does the same as the one in the computer
