I just don't get it. Installed a new CPU - same result. Should I try my other mobo again? Could it be the power supply?

I would think more the MOBO.
Have you tried to disconnect everything except the following and see if it boots.

Disconnect everything from the Motherboard except

* keyboard
* mouse
* video output
* 20+4 powercable
* 4/8 pin 12v wire both coming from the powersupply,
* Cpu fan wire
* power and reset button to the case
*case speaker

Now you should have NOTHING connected to the motherboard except what was listed above.

The goal here is just to test the mobo:

Got it to work! I bought a new power supply. My old one didn't have an 8-pin atx power cord and so I didn't even realize it needed to be connected (my manual didn't say that either). So that was the whole problem. Thanks again for your help.
