I tried a BIOS upgrade to an ASUS A7V motherboard which failed and I was left with a dead machine. I managed to get the BIOS chip reprogrammed with original version, still machine dead. No bleeps, monitor does not come out of standby, drives would whirr for a few seconds and CPU fan works.
Decided motherboard must be damaged and replaced board with a Asus A7N8X. Machine still dead with new motherboard, videocard & monitor work fine with another computer.

Power supply may be the problem, but onboard green LED lights when mains power available and on trying to Boot Up drives whirr for a few seconds and CPU fan operates. Jumpers have been checked There are no obvious fuses within PSU

If you have a PCI modem card try removing card. I had a faulty card which prevented the comp from booting lights came on but not much else.
