Motherboard. If you tryed resetting the cmos and that doesn't work then remove everything from the board except power connectors. (ex. video card, ram, ide cables, floppy cables etc etc.) Then start the pc with nothing in it and if your mobo speaker is hooked up and you hear no beeps then the board is toast.
