Check my # 2 here:

His symptoms may not be exactly the same as yours but the things to check are.

Here's some other thoughts:

But it's usually the power supply, motherboard or both.

It's hard to know for sure you've found the problem until you get it going again.

Yeah, beeps are better than no beeps. That usually means the power supply is providing all the voltages at sufficient amps so it likely is good. It's a good sign for the motherboard too but you need to check its beep codes to see what that particular beep sequence means--usually one short beep is normal. You need a compatible cpu, ram and video card to see if it does post.

I don't know if it's mentioned in the links in my post above but often the capacitors on a motherboard go bad. They start to leak and get a puffy look to them--kind of like when you leave a sode in the freezer. Bad caps are probably the second most common cause of motherboard failure, next to a bad power supply frying the motherboard.
