Better description needed

It could be the mother board, or maybe just the video card. You didn't give much more of a description. Does it beep?? How many times, long or short or what combination?? No display, any flashes??

Would also be good for the poster to post the make and model

Post the make and Model of the unit and the psu, there are a lot of things that can be wrong, with little detail we cant help.

Re Re make and Model :)

In Your first post you say that you tried another ps, now the Board that you have which you say is a Intel D845GVSR your handbook is here ftp://download.intel.com/design/motherbd/sr/C4681101.pdf
On page 50 Item D a lot of users when they buy a new PS dont think about that small plu, and dont even connnect it up, one major reason why it may not boot.

Also if you have removed the CPU and replaced it wrong.

Now these points are all beginners points and I by no means imply thast you are a beginner, but many a Large repair bill could have been avoided by the users first information they post or say.

Too many times have I recived Motherboards in for so called repair when its down to just simple things.

If you have read the after post from XT John I would also agree with him on his view, These boards are not the best at withstanding an overlaod from a blown psu.

First bit of advice...

by XT John In reply to IS MY MOTHERBOARD FRIED? ...

some will take offense at seeing a message typed in all caps... IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR SHOUTING. Beside a green light on the motherboard, are there any other signs of life? such as the cd drive flashing, whirring? or the hard drive spinning up? or the floppy drive showing any sign of life? Chances are, when the power supply blew, it took the motherboard with it. I've seen this happen on e-machines quite alot. All the components were ok, processor, memory, hard drive, etc. But the motherboard was toast.
