No POST or other motherboard activity

  1. I have an Asus motherboard with a Western Digital harddrive (all listed in my profile) that apparently doesn't get past the POST. The monitor never flickers on and there are no beeps from the board. I have even removed the RAM and the exact same thing happened. It apparently didn't even notice the RAM missing. I tried known working RAM in it and same effect. I even unplugged the graphics card and the same thing; its like it doesn't even get to the stage of checking the video or RAM. The keyboard never initializes either. The harddrive is okay, I checked it in another computer. I have also reset the BIOS both by removing the battery and the jumper settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :grinthumb

    hate to say it but it is sounding like a mobo/PSU/processor problem

    no beeps from the motherboard? test another psu in there. from the sounds, i'd say the mobo is the most likely cause, followed by the psu.
