Is my motherboard fried?

Gigabyte / Ga-m61pme-s2p
December 29, 2009 at 12:54:06
Specs: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
Basically, I experienced pretty strong ESD
and I'm unsure whether the mobo is fried. I
bought a new processor because I thought the
processor got fried (due to the symptoms, the
CPU fan turns on, LED lights turn on, video
card fan turns on) but after installing the new
processor I get the same response (black
screen, the computer powers on BUT will not
power off through the switch and has to be
turned off through the PSU). Any input is
appreciated, thank you.

I was putting my new case's F_PANEL pins on the
motherboard. I was working on carpet, so i guess I forgot to
ground myself after moving around. After turning the computer
on, I hold the case to lift it up and I get this surge of static
electricity (made a popping sound from what I remember. I
immediately switch my PSU off, no smoke or anything
afterwards. I turn it on again and I get no response on the
monitor, the LED lights turn on, case fans and CPU fan turns
on. Also, it won't turn OFF when i hold the power button, but it
will turn ON. I have to use the PSU's switch to turn it off.

I bought a new processor that just arrived and I stuck that in
there, cleared CMOS and removed battery, no dice. It does
that same thing with my other processor so I'm guessing the
motherboard may really be the problem.
