Start with the usual. Unplug fuel pump(power to it), spray some easy start and check whether it fires up for a second or two. If it does - you have spark but something wrong with the fuel. If it doesn't - you have something wrong with the spark. Might be lot of things, from CPS through amplifier to pump or injector issues. We need more info :)
