You honestly are pissing me off. Why can't you ever admit you are wrong? Are you one of those kinds of people? In every thread I see you posting in, you try and argue your point even when it's blatantly obvious you are WRONG. You are going to cause more harm then good here on the forum. I mean, what if the OP went and bought a new HDD and still had the exact same problem! Then what, he's out $100 and you feel even dumber. We have RULED OUT THE HDD in this case. Obviously, your case with your hard drive was NOT exactly the same, otherwise his computer would've posted and he would've been able to access BIOS, but he cannot.
Moving on, as others mentioned above, it seems like to be a PSU or MB issue if you have reseated the RAM and that didn't help. So you have 2 options. Borrow someone else's PSU to test (or if you or your brother has one lying around you can try), or you can buy a PSU tester (which are like 10 to 20 bucks, but I'd try and go the free way first). But, as AR suggested a while back, check your RAM first. If you need help reseating it, let us know and we'd be happy to walk you through it. It's very simple--really, it is!
