First try resetting the BIOS by removing the battery for about 10 minutes. Unlikely but it just might work. If it doesn't, you've tried disconnecting all the bits Fruit Bat /\0/\ recommended, now unplug EVERYTHING else from the motherboard except the power connector, the processor with heatsink, the case speaker and the power switch. If that doesn't work then the motherboard or the processor has died.
