When you turn it on, do the LEDs light up, fans spin, but no post? Does the monitor stay black and the power light on the monitor stay orange?

Motherboard's smaller leds stay light but get brighter for like .2 seconds. No fans including PSU spin up.

I'd try your RAM in your board one stick at a time. If that doesn't work, try your RAM in a friend's computer, one stick at a time. If the RAM is ok, then it's likely your motherboard's fault.

I tested the ram 2 weeks ago when I bought 2 more gigs. All passed after 5 tests.

It'd also be a good idea to reseat the video card just to make sure.

Let me try that I just bought an 8800gt I had a 7900gs.

Were you having any signs of failure leading up to this? Any random shutdowns, BSOD's, etc?

Nothing I turned it off and went to sleep next morning, R.I.P.!
