Default Problem with ECS 945P-A Board

I am currently trying to fix my mom's friends computer, and I think I have finally diagnosed that it is a problem with the motherboard.

The motherboard is an ECS 945P-A(socket 775), with a Pentium D 820 2.8GHZ CPU. The problem was the computer would refuse to boot, all the fans are on but the BIOS would not even boot. My first hypthesis was a problem with the BIOS, I cleared the CMOS, rebooted, same thing. Second theory was the power supply, I used my brand new Hiper Type R 580W PSU, same exact problem. After the purchase of new ram, the same issue occurs. From my expirience, the only two possible problems is the CPU or the Motherboard, I suspect it is the motherboard.

so these are the things I want to ask:
1. Are there any other possible problems with the computer that might be causing this?

2. What is the best replacement board for this specific processor?

You did everything right when trouble shooting, But you left out a few steps. unhook everything from the board (ram, hdd's, disk drives etc) and restart the computer and see if it will post and or beep. It won't your right the board is toast.

This is what I would buy, (all the features of the other board) What Video card do they have?

Its a Evga 6800.

I forgot to mention that I unhooked the ram and tried to boot it but there was no post no beep, nothing. That was the first reason why I think the board is broken.

I've had this problem before, turned out to be CPU fry-age to blame. Exact same problems as your describing. Although it could be either!
