    The problem with the situation is that there is no PROMPT! I mean, there is no CMOS/BIOS screen, even with DEL press, or whatever. If there were some sort of a prompt,

    So, now the situation is, when I turn on my system, the power LED lits up, power and CPU fans working, machine noise begins, no BIOS screen, no BIOS POST message, no system failure or any other message.

    What is the problem? i did not change the CMOS/Bios. Is it my power supply or my motherboard got problem.

    Take out ram, network card etc. Your PC (more precisely: bios) should be doing beepcodes...they can be interpreted depending on the bios you have..

    If there is no reaction on taking out all components, some serious damage is probably done.

    Diagnosis is difficult here, it could be due to many reasons. Can you give is more precise information?

    Does it generally start now or does it not?

    If you know your bios, you can decipher those beepcodes.
