PC Not Starting, No POST Screen

On pressing the power button the fans start and the red activity LED on the case flashes for a few seconds, but after that nothing else happens and the monitor remains blank except for a "No Signal" message (monitor generated).
On a normal start up the monitor shows the "Chilllblast" logo momentarily, before going on to the POST screen, etc.
Seems to me that the machine isn't even getting as far as the BIOS.
It is nearly five years old and I was thinking of changing it later this year, so won't want to spend too much on it!
Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks for your follow-up, it seems obvious now we know!
Yonks ago a friend had just received a brand new PC. Same symptoms.
He phoned the suppliers who said make sure the graphics card was properly seated. He did that and they lived happily ever after!
