Any  beeps? If none, try removing the RAM. Any beeps now?
Reseat the RAM and re-try. If still no good then do as whatboy suggested and repolace the RAM

Could be a code 11 which points to a memory controller issue, Try some know good ram, if you dont have any but have 2 or more sticks installed try 1 stick at a time. If know good memory or all the sticks fail its probably a bad motherboard.

I tried removing the ram and also reseating the ram, all without any success.  There are no post beeps at all.  So this just leaves me with a bad motherboard then?

Sounds like it, but just to make sure do you have another power supply to test with?

If you get no beeps when you remove all RAM then the motherboard is the most likely culprit...

If... and only if... the BIOS is set on a socket and not soldered to the MB, try getting if you can another BIOS from a same MB, if different version might not matter... if that doesn't work, see if you can do a reflux on the south bridge, lately I've seen too many damaged MBs due to bending the MB more than enough...

I recommend Asus and MSI (heard there tech support is great but i have never had a failure so no reason to call).
