Its the power Supply. Even though it is powering the LED on the mobo, it isnt able to supply enough power to run the PC. Most likely a diode in the AC to DC Rectifier Bridge went out, and is now causing a malfunction in the rectifier bridge.

I've had this same problem on 2 different PC's. Swapped power supply and it fixed it, both times. Good luck, hope this helps.

Dell precision 650 dies...

Hi , I suggest try testing single memory modules , one at a time to isolate a faulty module if that is the issue
Another idea is running a Linux live distro os like Ubuntu from bootable disk or flash drive in live/try mode which run from a virtual partition on the ram memory
If Linux runs ok - then likely a Windows related driver / software issue but if same crash issues are observed then most likely a hardware device issue ie faulty memory module , but as varies when crashes i am thinking more the psu - high boot current load demands due to twin SCSI drives , video card etc - old psu - after a few years the power current rating reduces I recall -25% typical , discrete components not so resistant to heat - try to test with a known good high performance psu or just replace , at release date 2002 definitely due for a replacement new psu

Ram assurance

The schematic layout of the P5VDC-MX on the user manual shows that there are 4 DIMM banks, set as 2 X 2 rows, 2 DDR2 and 2 DDR.

The user manual explicity states:

I am running different frequency modules without any problems. With the info above provided by ASUS, it may be possible that a fix could be available with a BIOS update. Otherwise, you can opt to use a lower capacity RAM along with your 1GB Corsair.

Hope this helps.

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.
