Default HP XT936 MOBO Problems

More info as to what the machine does.....

Upon power up, the keyboard and mouse scroll wheel lights up, the cpu fan kicks on, the HDD gives a little whir attempt to operate and nothing more. No display on the monitor, no more HDD noise, just a very loud silence! :-)

I then removed all PCI cards, booted, got the same.

I removed the RAM from their slots and tried booting again hoping for beeps from the mobo, but got nothing.

Now the machine is completely tore apart, my data is on two HDD's and I am secretly wish HP would be swallowed by a black hole!

Any advice from there would be appreciated and the great abyss of social apathy would open a little less today.

well, I'd say the Mobo is fried. I'm not an expert, but it doesn't sound like a PSU problem, and the board isn't giving you beeps that the CPU is dead, so it sounds like the Mobo. Sorry man.
