If you did all of that & still got the same results the next step is to remove the motherboard from the case , put it on a piece of cardboard [I use a motherboard box] & try to start it outside of the case.
[use a small screwdriver to touch the on button pins]
This will determine if it was shorted out in the case.
If it won't start outside of the case I would surmise that the motherboard has failed.
Edited to fix a typo !
