Asus A8n-E, no power, no post, DEAD!

Hi guys, last year I built this system, and was working fine for a long period roughly 1 year, yesterday I hit a brick wall. When I try to power my system up, it fails to show any power at all. The little led light mounted on the A8n-E mobo blinks continiously which I think is indicating a problem. My intuition is telling me there is a short circuit somewhere, I'm currently unable to diagnose where though. Ive come here for some assistance in getting this system back up and running. Here is what I have attempted in troubleshooting the problem.

I have : removed all components and refitted them in case there was a loose connection, tried booting the system with just cpu and ram, I dont have another psu i can test which Im annoyed at. Has anybody got any ideas as to why my system would be getting no power or what could cause a short?

One thing I might mention, when I first built the computer, It never went smooth, my only option was to call out a techie(good one too) he fixed my system up at his workshop, when I asked the techie what the cause was, he mentioned something about the GFX card being loose and needed tightend to the PCI-E slot, now if it were the GFX card, why does the system not receive any power when I remove it? and what is this LED Light trying to tell me?

Please I would truly appreciate any light on this matter because I am bigtime cheesed off.

Thanks Alot for reading my latest fiasco!

Borrow a PSU from a friend, or buy a cheap one for situations such as these. The symptoms are signs of a defective PSU.
