sounds like somethings frazzled mine got hit by lightning once and it fried the cmos chip.if in doubt take to a computer shop unless you can systematically test everything yourself to find the fault.darren
of elimination. You know you are getting power to your board and so at least the power supply appears to be working.
You are going to have to check each component which isn't much help if the fault is in the motherboard.
Personally, I'd start by checking that everything is seated properly and all power connections are secure. Then, and this is no help at all, find some way of checking motherboard, CPU and expansion cards.
If you have no spares you may be better going to a computer repair and ask if can test by trial and error of cpu etc. as you may finish up buying that many spares you will be able to build a new computer
