Default Mobo died?

So I have this Compaq Presario with a Celeron, it originally came with Windows 98. I reformatted it to Win2k and it froze at the end of the installation. I tried pushing the power button, nothing happened. So I unplugged it, and it hasn't turned on again. Nothing completely dead! I tried a new power supply but nothing, any ideas?

Ok, I tried to reset the CMOS, didn't work. I'm thinking the mobo died.

Na only if you shorted something by touching it.
