Re: Motherboard is dead
use a multimeter to check the outputs from your PSU
find out how much wattage you system uses as a whole and make sure the PSU is rated high enough
that rules out the PSU
if the PSU is fine and it doesnt boot at all, its the board. Even if the RAM was faulty, it would boot but fail POST, and if the CPU was out you would get various error messages and a shutdown (usually).
