Replaced old defective motherboard with new

Specs: Windows XP 64 BIT, AMD
I have IBM Intellistation Pro A machine that has two CPU's. My main motherboard was damaged so had to install a nw motherboard. The sequence that lead to identify the failure of the main board was because there was no display on the screen [monitor is brand new and have tested with other computer] and after a series of tests realized the board was damaged. Anyways got a new motherboard [same spec and same company] after installing still there is no display on the monitor and neither does the computer boot. I do have the Win XP 64 bit installed on the old hard drive that is in he computer. After I installed the new motherboard the fan of the NVIDIA video card started operating and so all the fault led's have gone. Have tried to do various things like removing all the cords and reconnecting them, putting the IBM CD's into the CD drive to start up the computer but nothing has worked so far. I would really appreciate if someone provides a step by step or atleast provide guidance on the matter that would help me resolve this issue.

Your troubleshooting logic is faulty. Just because you couldn't get video doesn't mean the motherboard was bad.

I would look at the power supply as being defective. Just because you see some activity doesn't mean the power supply is good.

Your post is hard to read. Try using multiple paragraphs.
