here is the deal:

when i turn on my PC nothing shows up on my monitor, i can't even get into the bios.,

what i have tried:
i tried a new video card, no success,
i tried another power supply, no success
i tried resetting the memory, the cpu, , no success
i have removed all harddrives, and ubs connections and pci cards,- no success
i have cleared the cmos by followring the clearing cms instructions for my motherboard, but nada.

i have left just the video card, one memory stick, but still i hear no beep and i don't see anything on the monitor.
i know the monitor works because it works on another pc i have.
i tried a different memory stick from another computer, but no success.
i call also tell you that the cpu fans turn on, the case fans turn on, bu tnothing.

im thinking its my mobo, but any other  suggestiosns would be appreciated.

    Hey, dude, I think, it is CPU or MB. Does any led on motherboard lights on? Can You tray to change CPU?

    I still think, the MB is dead. Try to get one in ebay.

    check the mobo for bad caps also, as per
    mobo problems come up to 95 %; cpu 5%

    Check, if the cpu is compatible with your mobo.
    And check if your memory sticks are in the asus qvl (qualified vendors list).
    Check if your psu is powerful enough.
