Have you tried resetting the bios by removing the battery, wait a few minutes and placing it back in?
Also,
Check if all devices are connected the right way, also connections to the case.
Remove memmory, processor etc and put it back in (to make sure they are fitted right)
Check if your motherboard touches the case only at places where the mounting holes are.

Do you get any beeps when you start up?  The number, length, and BIOS you are using are indicators to the source of the trouble.

If no beeps, I would say that it was a dead cpu, bad or incompatible video card, or power supply.  Since you checked the power, that leaves the video card or cpu.  Do you have another one that you can swap in to test?

Than I think that only leaves one thing: motherboard
Replacing this one has to work.
