How do I solve a non booting pc?

Hello, a few weeks ago, my PC flashed a blue screen then started to reboot itself but it froze. I opened my PC (after hearing beeps)and after disconecting hardware 1 by 1, I noticed the beeps only came when I connected my primnary SATA I hard drive.

So I went out to buy a new one and connected the drive. Turned on the pc and it wil not boot, nothing coming on screen, All connections are secure, the PSu powers up, fans whirring yet nothing else, I cannot acess BIOS

Getting a little frustrated, please help

MOBO - XFX nForce 650i ULTRA, CPU - Intel Core Duo 2ghz, RAM - 3 gb DDR2 RAM

Also PSU (Power Supply)can be the problem as they can do this if the 5 volt line is not right. this supplies all the hardware with power
