I have a computer that had a power supply failure (smoke and burning smell). After replacing the PS it still wouldn't work. Everything gets power but the computer isn't booting. Not even a post screen. I thought the motherboard got fried too so I replaced it. I noticed that the cooler had come loose from the original MB. I installed the new MB and I get the same thing. Shouldn't I still get a post screen if the CPU went bad? I thought maybe it was the video card so I used the onboard video with nothing still. I even tried a different monitor to see if that was it. Nothing.

It's possible that with that bad of a power supply failure it shorted out some or all of the components in the machine. Do you have any spare ram to try?
