Well, this comes down to figuring out everything different between the setup at home and at the LAN party and the first thing would be the power source. Did you try plugging into the same power strips or outlets that others were using that worked for them?

it going to one of the things we cant help as were not looking at your gaming rig. myself it sounds like a ram stick or video card or the cpu heat sink was shifted from moving the pc. also check in the case for a lose screw. if it rolling around inside it can short out a mb and keep it from booting.

I would have to agree with Smorizio that something may have shifted moving it from home to the LAN party. Now that you've disassembled it, are you even getting it to work at home? Gotta ask yourself how important it is that you can move the PC around, if you have it working at home, there's nothing wrong with the PC itself but something about where you're plugging into.

did you bring your own keyboard and speakers or use the ones at the lan party. if there was a dead short on the usb or Ethernet port the mb wont turn on. i seen usb hubs and or apple devices pull to much power out of a usb port and the mb will not post to save itself.
