There's a metric ton of random info in this thread.
You tried 2 PSUs, and it still won't post, just turn on for a moment and then nothing.
It's not the PSU then. However it is a fundamental issue. That only leaves a few options.
1. You may need to pop the CMOS battery out long enough for it to forget it's settings and see if maybe the motherboard simply got "gilted" from the power failure. This is an easy fix, so try that first. Wait 10 mins or so before replacing the battery and make sure the PSU isn't plugged into the wall/turned on.
2. Try running it with a single stick of ram, as someone else mentioned. Then try one other stick just to be sure.
3. Motherboard failure. Just because it lights up doesn't mean it's working, just that power is being supplied to it. The expression, "the lights are on but nobody is home", is a fitting one. Only way to test this one would be another motherboard. :/
*Edit* Most of this has already been stated in one form or another. But there really isn't much else.Edited by [\/]Paris - 2/12/11 at 12:05pm
