No video output

Hello all,
I just recently tried using a computer that was unused for about 2 months because I moved. There are no beeps when I turn it on and there is no video on the monitor (it stays in low power mode)

Athlon x2 6400
asus mobo m2n-mx se plus
2x1gb ocz memory

I sent the mobo in to asus for RMA and they returned it back saying nothing was wrong. Clearly something is wrong.

This unit had been working fine before I moved.

1) Yes the cpu speaker is plugged in.
2) Yes the 4 pin cpu power is plugged in
3) I've swapped out the CPU (w/ identical from other system)
4) I've swapped out the PSU (w/ identical from other system)


I should hear at least one beep within 2 or 3 seconds when this thing boots up, and then the video should kick in.

P.S. I just noticed that the Power LED is solid green, while the HD LED is flashing green and orange. I have unplugged the SATA connector and it has made no difference in the light flashing.

So roll back the hardware until you do get a beep.

For instance, do you get a beep code if you remove all the RAM?

And list full specs please.

Are any fans spinning?

Yeah I get beeps if I remove the memory which is typical.
I don't think it will turn on with the cpu missing, pretty sure I tried before rma'ing the board. There are no other components or specs to list. The cpu fan spins normally.
