SOURCE: no display when i turn on pc
You mentioned there were no beeps. Do you not even get the single beep (Post)? Did this issue only start after removing and reseating the CPU/Ram? If so, check they are seated properly.

If it happens at 'random' times, and won't restart immediately, most likley it's overheating due to dust blocked heat sink / fan (or a bad fan)
If it always happens at the some point in the boot up before you get the password prompt .. most likley it's s/w
Hit F8 during power up.. select 'last known good'
If that fails, F8 and select 'Safe Mode'
If you get into Safe Mode, uninstall whatever you last installed that is causing the lock up (most likley some hardware driver or some virus/root kit you got via email)

SOURCE: Dell XPS 400 no power to usb
Cant remember the exact location for this, but you need to access the CMOS config when starting up. Dig around a little and you will find the settings that will allow you to start you system with a usb mouse and keyboard.
Hope this helps. If you have any idea where I can get drivers for my motherboard (EPoX EP-4PDA5) that would be great. I already tried EPOX's website, and no joy.

It is a thermal problem. Try replacing the CPU fan & make sure you use a good thermal grease when reinstalling. Hope this helps.

You may have a failed motherboard or bad/weak poswer supply unit (PSU) then. Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. The DELL GX270 and GX 280 were the main DELL models affected by this situation. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything. Make sure you look under the fan shroud. Most of the bad ones had either a plus + or X on the top - depending on your interpretation. There are a few companies that will repair broken capacitor issues. If it has recently gone out of warranty you could try to contact DELL to see if they will ship you another one. I was able to get them to fix a couple of mobos out of warranty, but that was two years ago. To eliminate some other stuff you could remove the memory and disconnect all the power plugs from the drives and then try to start it up. If it does not change the behavior at all (no beeps, no change in flashing lights) then you probably have motherboard or power supply issues. Make sure when disconnecting the memory chips (sticks) that you touch the metal on the inside of the case first to discharge static electricity. If it does change the behavior add 1 component or item back at a time to see what you can find out. Post back with what you find. And remember a bad PSU does not mean no power, just not enough to run the computer. If you change out the PSU, the one that you replace has to have the same or greater output watts?
