    And don't forget to check this one.

    What I usually do in this case is take the board out of the case, unplug everything but the bare essentials: CPU, RAM, video card. put it down on a non-conductive something, plug the PSU into the mobo and try booting it like that. This ensures that nothing was shorting out and also you can troubleshoot hardware better if you know that it boots like this.

    Don't forget to clear the CMOS as was suggested above.

    The board is not in the case (it actaully never was ). It has no 'clear CMOS' jumper so I just took the battery out, waited for some time, put it back in and still nothing. I'll try to leave it out overnight and see what happens...

    It might not actually be a 'jumper' per se it my just be two contacts on the motherboard that you need to touch with a screwdriver.
