Why computer is not booting?

Question

For some reason my computer was working perfectly last night. When I turned it on the next day my computer would not boot up. The system turns on but the keyboard and mouse do not respond. The monitor works perfectly but it does not detect windows and acts as if nothing happened. The LCD's on the tower are on but none of the drives work. You can't restart it or do anything else. Since windows does not start up you can't do anything to the software. Please help.

Good luck!
