Computer Dead? CPU Dead? Help!!

I have a P4 mb. It is a 3 month old Asus P4C800-E deluxe board w/2.6 p4. Last week, unit would not power up. No fan, no lights, nothing. The LED light on mobo itself came on but the power supply fan would not work. The cpu fan would not work. No booting of drives. No video. No sound. I thought the power supply was dead so I replaced it with new one. STILL THE SAME PROBLEM. NOTHING CAME ON. Then I changed the motherboard. STILL THE SAME PROBLEM. NO LIGHTS, NO FANS, NO VIDEO, NO BOOTUP, NOTHING. Next I pulled all the cards out, disconnected everything except the board and power supply. Still would not come on. NO ANYTHING. Could the CPU be dead? Could the cpu fan be dead? Would this cause the power supply to not power up? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome Mikey.

Pull the PC fan connector off and see if it boots.

Thanks for your suggestion. I disconnected the cpu fan from the mb and turned power supply on. STILL NOTHING. SOMETHING IS CAUSING THE POWER SUPPLY TO NOT TURN ON. Now, I have tried everything except to change out the CPU. I was hoping a someone might come up with a solution before have to go and buy another CPU.

Thanks again for your help. I do not know how I can test the memory. I do not have anymore other than the 2 sticks of DDR 400 memory on the mb. I guess I could switch them in their respective memory banks and see if the system will boot up.
I have even checked the power supply cord to make sure power was getting to the power supply.

Sounds like u have done it all. Just wanna rule out the least expensive stuff first. Maybe try one stick ram at a time or if you can get one to test....
