I have a thread about ocing my cpu
and in my last post I mentioned that something went wrong and my computer died.

Well it needs to come back to life! It simply will not power on. Sometimes I can get a split second power to my LED's on my fans but that is it. I took the computer apart and I can't see any signs of burns or irregularities on the hardware. I swear I have tried everything. I have switched the PSU (tried a older no name brand 350w and left one of my graphics cards unplugged), swapped out the processor, tried a different motherboard, all of these in different combination. I get the same problem every single time; no power what so ever or a split second power to the fans. I even tried a different power cord and a different power socket in another room.
I guess I need to take it step by step again, but with some pros telling me what I need to do! I am probably skipping things over just over thinking the problem completely. What are the first steps to narrowing it down to find out what went wrong? Help!! Thanks in advance.
