So my computer will not turn on. It passed the paperclip test. I have tried unplugging everything except Motherboard power, 1 stick of ram and CPU and it still won't turn on. I also removed the CMOS battery to try and reset it with no sucess. There are LED lights on the mother board that are on but that just might be the battery. Could this be a motherboard problem or possibly still a PSU issue?

Try removing a RAM stick and test then the other. You may have to reset the bios again to for sure test each stick. IF this doesn't work try remove the motherboard and testing it on a desk. Could be grounding.

I will give that a shot. I'll let you know what happens.

I'm not sure how it could be a grounding issue though. It was working fine for months and than I turned it on last night, it shut it self off and never came back on.

Seems it was a grounding issue. I removed everything and pulled out the mother board and everything switched on. I'm replacing it all now to see if that fixes it.
