        Kinda tough one to chase - I would have gone with PSU on a guess-I guess diagnoisis should have revealed the VC-bummer it took so much time and guessing-spare parts are always good.

          I think a bad mobo don'T do anything. No power most of the time no fan turning but you can have the same problem with a dead PSU. When you have mysterious electric problems it is most of the time the PSU or stuff include with it. Bad PSU can dmg a lot of stuff so better to change it as soon as possible.

            You can always test a PSU by shorting the green wire (remote power on) to a black one (ground.) in that case, the fans and hard drive should spin up (if connected) and you should get a power light at least off the mobo (again if connected.)

            Motherboards can fail in all kinds of ways. With a good CPU, RAM, and video section or card, (and PSU) they will POST. From there, they could still have bad IDE or SATA interfaces, onboard video, nic, or sound issues, or no USB/Firewire.
