Try unplugging the system for 5 minutes and then try to boot it on again.
Do you get any beeps when you turn it on then?
Can you hear the HD spin up?
Does the windows start sound happen?

If by chance you could find a MOBO that would work in that case and would support your cpu and memory you would have to have the same exact board to remain legal in the OS with microsoft since the system was preloaded.
You could buy a new Barebones system which would consist of
PSU (may be optional)
You could then replace OS system with a newer one like Windows 7
This would probably mean formatting your hd and reloading.
You could go to a 32 bit version on Win7 and may not have as many problems.
The other issue is since this is a HP system the OS was preinstalled which means that the XP is married to the system.
This means legally you would have to replace it anyway with a new OS system.

I say that because of this notice on the description of the item
These components are not included with the system.
NO HEATSINK, PROCESSOR, RAM, OPTICAL DRIVES, or HARD DRIVE!
You would have to purchase them separately.

It looks like your parts will interchange with it.
Now the only problem is the OS system.
It probably will have to be reactivated since it is in all sense a new system.
If you have a Genuine Original Microsoft XP installation disk with the original and unused key code then you can start fresh.
