not a beep from mobo

  rickd 11:36 07 Apr 2011

My XP pc of 5 years was replaced last week. Had been working fine up 'til then. It was moved, cleaned, and all the dust etc. blown out of it (carefully). When switched back on all the fans and lights came on, but no beep or post.
I suspected that something might have come loose, so tried reseating (and swapping) the graphics card, RAM and CMOS battery and all leads. Is it possible that the PSU is to blame - I tried unplugging all HDDs fans etc to reduce the load, but no difference.
Because of no beep at all, I strongly suspect the mobo (or chip) died during the move (i.e a dry solder), but is there anything else I should try before either replacing it or laying it finally to rest?

Have a look through this.

It does say it could be a short but not sure how you would find it.

Try a switch-off at the wall, then press and hold the reboot switch for at least 10 seconds before reconnecting the mains and (with fingers crossed) switch on.

Personal opinion is that the PSU might have gone terminal!
