I don't have a friend who could lend it to me, but I did try taking all PCI cards and video card out, tried each stick of RAM in each slot along with testing it with one in at a time, nothing worked. Again, the probability of it being the TWO memory modules that failed at once is highly unlikely. At this point, I'm pretty sure it's either the motherboard or the cpu.

yep i agree, strip time....if nothing is broken or fried, there must be some shortcircuit somewhere....(i remember a member on this forum, found a dead rat in a case, so check behind your mobo for lost gerbils or something....lol) otherwise i think its the mobo, also take out your graphics card, and try to turn it on just to be sure,...if it was the ram it would turn on and sound a beep code (if the pc speaker is connected)

by short-circuit you mean... something permanently damaged?

sorry for all the questions by the way. I'm just really paranoid about trying to fix my computer.

no problem almost all of us have problems like this, maybe not exactly like this, but ones that take a while to fix.

If you cleaned your case and checked for losse connections, it's quite possible for voltage regulators to have fried. It's best to RMA it, or have it fixed if it's out of warranty.
