What's Hardware?



First I would like to thank you for providing this service to everyone, your such a good person for providing this public service.

----I have problem booting up my computer, It doesn't boot up at all, everything powers up but it doesn't boot up, not even to the bios, it's just a blank screen, the HD AND PW leds flicker, my dvd drive and dvdrw drives turn on and off. I bought a new motherboard and everything worked ok for a while but the suddenly it stoped booting up, I checked all the connections and the mobo jumpers and everything is correct, so i went and bought new memory and I still have the same problem, I know my hardware is all ok because it worked fine with the previous mobo, But then I tryed to boot up with the previous mobo and it also didn't work, then I tryed to reset cmos by taken out the bios battery for a few minutes but that also didn't work, I have run out of options, please help me out.
