Help.

I was working at my 8 month old computer and it suddenly stopped. I get no indication of power at all. There is no bootup at all, no light indication on the mother board and no fan activity. I did check the power supply with a paper clip (recommended by corsair tech) and it seems to be working (I also plugged in another psu to the board and had no power indications). It just seems dead.

How do I know what is wrong? Could it be the motherboard or memory?

Here are the specs:

MB: GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H amd 780g chipset micro ATX
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Brisbane 2.5GHz Socket AM2
MEM: mushkin 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB
PSU: CORSAIR 450

Any help would be great. Thanks.
