Power on only enables the PSU fans

I have a Shuttle XPC SB81P and after having opened the case during run, it just went dead. When I turn on the PSU and flick the main switch the PSU fan starts to spin but nothing else happens. I've tried to remove the PSU and test it by using a paper-clip and see that a hard-drive gets powered (through a tip on this site) so the PSU doesn't seem to be the issue.

What's my next step, I'm guessing that it's motherboard issue, and since the SB81P motherboard (FB81) has a "custom" micro-ATX design I'm reluctant to say that I probably will have to buy a new barebone...

Any hints?

I had the same symptoms when my power supply went to crap. The only sure way to test is to try a different power supply.
