Dead Computor

A friend of mine has a problem the computor fires up but does nothing the busy light flashes all the time but nothing appears on screen. I thought it may be hard drive so i tried another HD in the unit and that will not boot although you do get the black stat up screen as far as detecting primary drive and then it freezes. do you think this is a MB issue or someting else?

Try this remove all Ribbon cables and try the computer to see if it will show a DOS screen
