Id try a different CPU. Make sure everything is seated correctly. Make sure all wires are connected.

This is what happened to my Gateway. I just got it working recently and now it stopped working again. It's exactly the same case as you. I'm not sure what I did to get it working.

Do you have another desktop?

Take the PSU from that, and try it with this one....

I have tried switching the ram graphics card and psu.
I have another 2.2GHz Celeron that I could use with this but im not sure if the fsb will conflict with the old board.
im am not exactly sure of the mobo's model number, i will post it later on

Although it IS odd that the mobo has power. Does ANYTHING happen when you push the button on? Any fan movement, sounds, lights?

The OP stated that he tried another power supply. Reading threads helps when you are trying to help someone.
