Computer stops on bootup

I have a computer that the fans would run but no beep and no video.   I disconnected everything except the video, nothing.   I replaced the PS and now it boots to the page that tells about the American Megatrends BIOS and it tells that it has a Celeron chip then it stops there.   There is no post beep either.   If it got this far, the board, chip and RAM should be ok, shouldn't it?   What should I do next?   It is running Windows XP

Hi syssolut, try to reset the bios, the motherboard has a jumper with two position to do that (clear cmos). With the CPU powered off, you have to move the jumper to the other position, let it for 10 seconds and then move again to the default position. Then try to turn on the CPU.

good luck

I found the CMOS solder points via the motherboard manual online.   I did what the manual said to clear the CMOS.   I tried it twice, but it still doesn't go any further.
