Try pulling the cmos battery out for about 5 minutes and then putting it back in.
This will force the bios to reset to factory default settings.
Does it work then?
The battery looks like a watch battery and is located usually on the lower end of the board somewhere around IDE connection.

now trying it with the board out of the case.

One thing I notice is that the vid card isn't seated correctly. Because the motherboard is sitting flat on the table (or cardboard), the vid card is being pushed up at the rear end by the vid card mounting frame tab. You either need to elevlate the motherboard or move the motherboard to the edge of the table so the vid card tab doesn't prevent the connector from seating all the way into the slot. Also, the white locking tab is not engaged, this is why I took a closer look at the connector. The tab will only engage if the card is correctly seated all the way down.

ram testing for beeps.

Yah, I was afraid that would be the case. However, can I ask if when you did have everything set up, you did have a hard drive connected, correct?
Sorry about that i had just removed the card &
ram testing for beeps.
In any case, the reason I wanted the photos was to check for any bad caps on the motherboard. There doesn't seem to be any.
I'm not sure what options you have right now and truthfully, I'm running out of ideas.
So far... you've tried..
a new PSU
2 vid cards
2 vid cables
motherboard out of the case
various beep configurations
The only other thing I can think of is to try to get a hold of another vid card.. beg, borrow, or steal... (well, not steal!). You might even try changing the DVI adapter, although I'm sure you already thought of that. Also, you could pull/reaseat the processor... long shot, but worth a try at this point.
Other than that, I'm out of ideas. I think we covered everthing and everything we did, I would have done myself in the same situation. I've had experience with motherboards dying before, and try as I may, sometimes I just have to give up and start anew. I hate it when it happens though!

1st off Sorry about the delay in posting back.
Yes the hd was connected & was doing the same
as in the case, spinning temporarily & the led
flickering for a few seconds,(not as long as i thought).
I have tried a new DVI adapter but forgot to mention it.
I have ordered a pci graphics card & am just waiting for
it to arrive in the post.
Thanks for your time & patience & also your efforts to help,

sorry about the delay in posting again.
The pci card i ordered finally arrived today
but unfortunately i am still unable to get any
signal to my monitor, is it time for a new MB
or do you think it may be a bios chip problem?
Any suggestions would be welcome, thanks

I re-read the entire thread again and I really don't know what else to attempt. Did you ever try to reseat the processor? I know it's a long shot, but worth a try before springing for a new motherboard. If that doesn't work, then it might be time to upgrade the system.
