Sometimes PSU's will fail under load and operate correctly when not under load.
Try ripping everything out except for the PSU, mobo, processor (and fan/cooler) and then fire it up. Get any beeps? If not, then it's likely that one of them things is what's bad.
Have you checked the motherboard for buldged/bad capacitors? ( http://www.badcaps.net
Do you have another computer handy that you can borrow parts from?
Just because the lights on, it don't mean that anyone's home. It only takes a smidgen of electricity along one path to light that light - all the rest of the paths could be broken and the light could still light up.
. . . I would of gone at it with a hammer by now!!
I'd have used a chainsaw!
