It could be that the CMOS battery is dead; that's what keeps your BIOS 'ready to go', and the power button just wakes up the power supply and the motherboard. If the CMOS battery (looks like a shiny silver coin on the motherboard) goes dead, the computer won't boot up at all. It's usually a CR2032 battery; carefully pry it out with a small screwdriver and replace it...you can find them at most drugstores, Radio Shack, etc.

could be an issue with the graphics controller or with the monitor. first, verify if the monitor is actually working. try it on another computer or video source. if it works, make sure that you have a working video cable and check to make sure the video input source (dvi, vga, rgb, hdmi.. etc) selected on your monitor is the correct one that you are using. if you have ruled out the monitor, video source and cables, you can then test if another monitor will work with the computer. if same thing happens, meaning nothing on display even the manufacturer or BIOS screen does not show up when you turn on the computer, it is most likely the video controller. you may either get the motherboard replaced or install an add-in video card if the integrated video controller only has one video connector.
I believe your mean PCChips M925. ECS didn't make a M925 board.
So you can find the PCChips bios and drivers HERE. If you download the manual there is a drawing of the motherboard for you to compare, to make sure you have the right drivers. But, you may be right that that board you have is extremely rare. I've never seen or heard of ECS making a M925. Check out the picture to be sure.
FOR YOUR MOTHERBOARD , ITS BETTER TRY NVIDIA GEFORCE CARDS LIKE GEFORCE MX4000 , FX 5200 , 5500 , 6300 BUT DONT USE SLI CARDS , THEN ABOUT YOUR ASUS RADEON ITS ADVICED THAT ASUS RADEON 9200 WILL WORK BETTER WITH INTEL MOTHERBOARDS
I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber.
When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?
