Well sir ... I got it to boot up I pulled the battery to reset the CMOS and I checked to make sure the CPU was properly seated ... also I made sure the memory sticks were in the correct slots. Once that worked I hooked up the video card ... that worked too.

I'm going to work in the BIOS. It won't boot into windows so I will have to format the drive and start again. I guess I need to install the drivers for the mobo.

I will probably go with XP 64 bit OS. I really like XP and don't want to get rid of it ... at least on my secondary machine I don't.

Will let you guys know how things turn out. :-|

Well sir ... seeing how XP is installed and I'm on my way to installing everything again I will mark the original problem as solved.

Symptoms: No power at all ... brick

Diagnosis: Hooking up new P/S produce no change. Checked power switch on case by shorting leds to mobo no change ... still no power. Removed all devices except for CPU still no power. Conclusion bad motherboard.

Solution: Replace Mobo. See earlier post for link showing new board.

PROBLEM SOLVED

Thanks for reading my post 8)

Good you are back in operation. But Win XP is officially abandoned, hope you can get all the security updates while still available. And it must have SP3 installed (first).
Sometimes, a capacitor can go bad internally, yet not show external signs. Then the data bus is shunted or excess voltage burns out sensitive chipsets.
I, too, will keep Win XP until my "wagon" gets pushed off the cliff!
