The problem at this point could be the electronic parts on the board that may have shorted out.
The other part is that motherboard could have gone bad.
Make sure that all the exchangeable parts were compatible with the motherboard,cpu being different will not process
Memory could be not seated properly.
Think of what happened when you last shut system down something went wrong that went unnoticed.

Pull out every card except for video card (if any). Unplug everything except the video feed, mouse and keyboard. Swap the memory with that from the working machine (use only one memory stick if there are more than one).

If nothing, clear CMOS (check MB manual). If you are certain the processor, PS and RAM are good, it is probably the motherboard.
