A motherboard will scream like a banshee with nothing plugged into it. You can slowly but surely test each component if you choose starting with the cpu... this is of course if it even boots at all. Sooooo...

If you plug in the board with NOTHING (not even the cpu) that board (with the pc speaker plugged in) should howl like a banshee and if nothing happens its dead. You'll need to look up the bios beep codes. You may want to find out how he powers down the computer too... I have a friend who once thought that in order to power down a computer safely you hit the red button the power bar.
