My System Specs

Default

Are there any electrical burn marks on the rear of the motherboard? If so, it's possible that you had a misplaced motherboard standoff that shorted out a critical power component. In most cases, a short will just prevent the PC from booting, but occasionally a short can connect a high power/voltage trace to something that doesn't react all that well to it.

Aside from that, if there was no short, it could be any number of things from the motherboard itself to something like a short in a usb device.

Did you double/triple check all of your power connections?
