A mystical problem?

  1. Hi, when i start the comp. the fans start working but thats it, the monitor will still be blank and nothing happens.
    So i took the comp into repair and the man there checked the thing whole day and after that he didnt have a clue because the bios seemed to work (when removed RAM it started screaming) and fans on the motherboard too still the monitor receives no signal and the comp. will not pass the povercheck (i think it was called POST).
    Resetting cmos has no effect.
    I think its the mobo problem, please help :(

    Mobo: asus p4 x-series (dunno exactly been using the pc 2 days)
    Video:Nvidia fx5200 (128mb ram)
    Processor:Intel celeron D (2.4ghz)
    Power supply:350w
    Ram:768mb ddram
    integ. audio, network card
    No burning markings seen anywhere
    well didnt check northbridge but it should be ok coz the info reaches from processor to the bios, the problem occured shortly (40sec) after i disconnected a fan from the mobo
    Should be the mobo coz they tried different harware (in the repair service) with the mobo, still no result :confused:
    Right now using other comp.

    Even if there is anything broken (melted, or just broken) on the mobo, could it be fixed?
    Tho NOTHING seems physically broken, could it be something that you cant see?
