Check your capacitors (upright cilinders) for "dryed out foam"

if they have leaked you're MB is toast.

Your mobo may require a special HP psu. Try the old psu, and see if it works.

Does an ATX-400 power supply unit mean that it is 400w.Can i use a psu with a higher power supply?Will it destroy the mobo?The power supply is working and the motherboard has 1 long beep when the memory cards is removed.This means that the mobo is working, right?The leds are on and the fans are also spinning.Does the mobo look for the fdd,cdrw and hdd before post beeping?

Thanks for helping me all the while.

A mistake on my part had my newly upgraded pc act the same way. After much troubleshooting I found that I had an extra MoBo standoff in the case that didn't match up with a mounting hole on the board. Thus shorting out the board on the back - but not all the time. After fixing the problem the pc worked fine. Got lucky - the board was not damaged.

For it is not what is seen, but what is not seen. :eek:
