    Have you tried minimal boot? One memory stick, a PS2 keyboard, and no periferials connected?

    Regardless of what the problem is, if it persists it narrows it down to one of CPU, Motherboared, RAM, video adapter or keyboard, and if it doesn't it's a starting point to begin tracking it down.

    Are you sure you do not have any bent pins in your CPU Socket? If you are then as said above you will need to start with the minimal and see what is causing it.

    I would get the board off the motherboard tray and outside of the case, use ONLY your CPU/Heatsink, one stick of ram, and your GFX Card. Nothing else, fans, cd drives, ect. Be sure you also remove all USB Items

    If it starts then slowly add parts until you find the culprit. If it still does not start you are going to have to try a few things. For starters I would be SURE you clear the CMOS Fully, try the method I outline here in post #2 of this thread >>

    If no luck after doing that you are going to need to test your main hardware in another system. I would start of course with the memory and Graphics card, memory first as this is the more likely candidate. If the ram and GFX Card work fine in another setup test your CPU next.
