Hey Knince, there is another thread here with also no real answers as long as you've tried every thing normal to trouble shooting.
-IE remove power. reset the cmos jumpers, return them to normal & try and boot. If that doesn't work try it with also pulling the battery out for say an overkill of half - to an hour. then return the cmos jumper and attempt to reboot too.
-Try a different Power supply (borrow a more powerful one from a friend)
-If you have a PCI graphics card you could try tha
-In the manual near the back they have a trouble shooting including the Cmos clearing & trying pressing & holding INSERT while you boot
-Remove your memory sticks (down to one) - test it in another system to make sure it's functioning. In the DIMM 1 slot
I've done all of the above and still NO Display. The fans run, the two LED Red Power & Yellow LED's working. I tested once with a Crucial Ballistix LED stick and it's firing those LEDs as well. STill no display no boot beep. No error beeps...
I believe my board is failed. No bulging capacitors, always run through a UPS with power cleaning; and unplugged during storms.
The PC shut off two days before what I believe is a failure. I booted when I found this and discovered that my CPU heatsink fan might have a problem as my CPU temps in Windows 7 while doing multiple things was hitting 60 C. I had the Abit EQ set to shut down the system at that temp as it's about 30 C over what my original idle used to be. So i planned on reseating the heatsink / fan & making sure it was working or i'd replace it.
I left it on... but then had a windows failure next time I booted. Took me a while with system repair to fix that and booted raised the thermal shut down to 65 c...
Went to sleep and woke up with the PC off & it didn't ever show a post again!! Grr
Forgot I'm also going to try and swap out the CPU, so I'll have a working higher rated PSU, only 1 stick of RAM, a PCI or PCI-E graphics card to test it out. If it fails then I'll be satisfied it's a bad board since I eliminated CPU, Memory, Graphics PCI-E & PCI as the possible causes -> as well as clearing the CMOS about 20 times
