I'll try to losen up the cooler.

I discovered yesterday that both my UPS and PC were "electrified". I get slightly electrocuted when I touch the chassis.

Perhaps this is what damaged my components.

I need to test my VGA card, CPU and RAM modules along with the mobo to know which components are damaged and which ones are working.
That sucks . The other stuff *may* still be OK. What PSU are you planning to get to replace the old one?

I already have an Antec TruePower 480W (bought 2 years ago).
I won't replace it (no budget) if it's still working.

Ah right. That should be great for that system. I didn't realise you had a spare. Let us know how you get on with testing .

Wow, I wonder if you had a bad ground. If the UPS was also giving you a zap, it could be a grounding issue.

It is a grounding issue indeed. I have no "ground" electrical installation where I live (at least not in my building). I think I need to connect my PC's chassis to some pipe like the one used for the winter heater.
The funny thing is I had been using this UPS for the last 5 years and I never got electrocuted whenever I touched the UPS or the PC's chassis. Perhaps the UPS is about to fail or it needs to be replaced !

Probably.
Is that not just incredibly dangerous having no ground?
The earth wire slipped out of the cheap ass kettle lead I used to use for my PC, It just wouldn't fire up, no lights, nothing. so If it is a ground issue I'm surprised you got any lights.
Probably the UPS as you said.

Well I bought a new mobo. Asus P5K-SE.
I put in the CPU, RAM and VGA and powered on the system.
I got the same thing again !!!
Mobo light goes green and VGA + cooler fans spin. But that's all.
I see no picture on the LCD monitor and I hear no beeps.
Do I need to connect the PC Speaker to hear the beeps ?

By the way, I have an older PC running on the same UPS and it's running great.

That sucks. It's very unlikely you go two bad motherboards.

Have you tried using just one stick of ram at a time? If not pull all the others except one stick and then try to start. Still no go switch sticks until you have tried them all. If you have access to another CPU, PSU and VGA card I'd swap those as well, again one at a time so you know which component worked to fix the issue.

GL!

That's the problem.
I don't have another PSU, CPU or VGA.

Ok I have an interesting update.
I tested my old mobo (Asus P5LD2-VM) today at a friend's house with my CPU (Pentium 4 650), RAM and VGA and it worked fine !!

Surprisingly enough, I then proceeded to test the new mobo as I had already paid for it.
It didn't boot. I tried a different CPU (Pentium D), different RAM modules and another VGA card. Still, nothing.

I called up the shop where I bought it and they said they would exchange it if they have another one with a similar model. Otherwise they'll issue a credit note and I'll get to buy something else with the amount I paid for the new mobo.

Lol so I ended up buying a new motherboard that won't boot when my old mobo was working.
