First of all, here are my computer specs:
BIOSTAR A770E3 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core 

GeForce GTS 250

ProcessorG.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W

My friends computer would not post, started up but nothing on screen and no bios beep codes. His MOBO and mine are both AMD3+ so I removed both our CPU's (carefully) and put mine in his and his in mine and neither computer posted or beep coded. I put them back and now my computer won't post. What happened?? Could a broken CPU cause my computer MOBO to malfunction? I took everything out of my case and set it on cardboard with just 1 stick of ram (I switched 3 different kinds), my graphics card, and CPU. Still no post or beeps. I tested the power supply manually and all the voltages are within range. I just ordered a POST card from amazon which will hopefully shed some light on this situation. Any advice in the mean time?? 

Note: None of the pins are bent and the main 24 pin and 4 pin power cables are hooked in. The CPU, GPU, and PSU fans all spin. I would test without the GPU but I don't think this is the problem and the MOBO onboard video card is female and I don't have a male to female VGA.
