The W6000 have a very sensitive RAM layout make sure they are installed securely with one of the following layouts.

Ram, blanking plate, blanking plate, blanking plate.
Ram, blanking plate, Ram ,blanking plate.
as the machine uses RD-RAM there can be no gaps in the memory circuite and can cause it to power up then down.

Also ,
I know this is slightly off topic but as you also ave a compaq evo w6000 do you have the windows xp recovery disc that came with it as i can not locate mine i am willing to pay via palpal to any one who can send me an ISO image of the recovery disk. My skype account name is CKDS-Broadband if anyone can help me find this disk please add me and i will discuss it over skype messenger with you.

remove your power supply and take it to a pc repair store they should test it for you on the spot at no cost most of them do.
To replace depending on what you need there about 40.00

Probably however if you upgrade the motherboard you will have to upgrade the CPU, and the memory, possibly the hard drive if the old board is IDE and the new is sata. Also you would have to upgrade the power supply if it's so old it may not have sata power connectors.
