ASUS A7V8X-X computer won't start

I seen a similair post to this in another thread but is quite old. I have a pc with Asus A7v8x-x board and and athlon processor in it. It was working and i have my OS installed.
I stored it away for a week and now it wont start. Nothing comes on screen,
The Board led comes on the PS fan and cpu fan come on as soon as i plug it in. I have no function to the on switch on the front.
When i connected the IDE cable to the cdrom i get the red HD light on but nothing for the hard drive itself. The cdrom drawer will open when powered.The Harddrive will not spin at all when the IDE cable is plugged in but will spin when only power cable is there.
I have taken out cmos battery, reset bios with jumper,
removed and reseated ram, also tried to boot without ram.
I tried a different powersupply. There is nothing only an agp card installed. I also took off the cpu fan and removed the procoessor and booted. The PS fan turned and MB led came one.
I checked power and i have 12v and 5v.
Is this a MB failure or CPU failure.
