Default machine has died - motherboard???

Hi - hope someone can give me some guidance here.

I have an old Pentium 300 machine which suddenly 'died' on me mid stream - still had power but no screen output or disk activity. On reboot the bios start up routine does a hardware check on the floppy disk and the cdrom drive but then it just stops - no beeps, no harddrive activity, no output on the monitor. I did try a different graphics card as I thought that might be the problem - the day before, the display had started to waver a bit - I thought it was mobile phone interference. But no change.

Not sure where I should be looking now.... help!!
