If you replaced the power supply, it can really only come down to the processor or the motherboard. Are you getting any beep errors at all? (Beeping on startup usually indicates memory issues.) However, if the board itself is the problem, you won't be getting any beeps at all.

I would recommend replacing the board. Find one that hosts the same socket as your processor.
