You get any power light?

Maybe the connector for the power switch fell off the MB?

I'd remove power, ground yourself on the power supply case and systematically reseat every stick of RAM, component card and cable then reapply power and see if this allows a POST, things do get jostled about in the post.

Good advice Fishn...

I had a giant heavy video card work it's way loose when moving my case once, crossing pins in the agp slot and shorting the power supply. Supply instantly shut off and nothing was harmed but same thing, no power on at all...

So happy to hear it has been resolved. I have always done what I call a walk through on any PC I get through the mail, or if assisting someone with an issue. It is much less frustrating to simply do a reseat and cable check before applying power as it reesolves frustrating issues 99% of the time.

its amazing , I had my pci ex card in the second slot as I had an issue with the first slot ,that when I restarted it would post an vga error so I had it in second slot and it was ok. but having got it back from repair it was reseated in first slot . and guess what it would boot ok but on restart it would give me the error , so I have had to put it into second slot . maybe I will take it back to them as it could be mb failing
