Onsite tech would often remove cover, unplug cd-dvd player, unplug [back then FD &] HDs, remove sound card and all other [back then PCI & legacy] cards, remove memory sticks, unplug monitor, mouse & keyboard. Something should beep with just the PS-MB post. Add keyboard. Add mouse. Add memory [1 stick at a time]. PC should at least not be "going backwards" - hopefully you still get post beep. Add monitor and keyboard [watch for any accidental bent pins]. Add either CD-DVD w/boot disk or HD, if can get into BIOS - make sure boot order includes cd-dvd along with HD boot. Hopefully, computer, successfully posting, begins boot sequence. Keep us informed.
Incidentally, by removing and replacing the above material, you are refreshing the numerous connections.
