Why is my PC fans spinning but not booting

My PC fans start up but then it doesn't boot or display at all. I have checked the cpu and no pins are bent and I have reset the cmos. What else could be causing this issue?

What is the make and model number of the PC or the motherboard if a custom build?

Does the CMOS battery plug into a socket or is it held in a battery holder i.e. spring on bottom of battery holder and other connector around the side of the battery?

If a holder check that the springs are exerting enough tension on the battery by gently, stress gently levering them up a bit so that when pushed down by the battery they are making for a firmer contact.

If they appear to be OK or if it is a plug and socket type battery connection then there may be a faulty connection between the CMOS battery terminals on the motherboard and the CMOS IC. You would need the schematics of the motherboard to trace this further."
