Yet again another signal problem...

that said, even if the pci is the default card, most mobos will check the primary slot first, then switch to the other.

When your cleared the cmos, you did it how? Jumper, or pulled the battery?

For example, a fried cpu may still conduct electricity, allowing fans to spin and the pci slots to fire, but nothing will happen. You usually get some BEEP action though.
A partially damanged mobo could do that do...I cannot see any melted/fried transistors....can you?
Your agp slot should be a lower voltage slot, so if the pci slots are working, we can rule out the powersupply (older cards were 5volt cards and used a different rail).
Because the pci and video graphic cards work in other machines, it almost certainly is a dead motherboard or cpu.

But if all parts work except the motherboard (did you swap out the psu), it has to be that.
Did it run nearly continuously before? Maybe hairline fracturers that connect when the motherboard is hot/warm, but separate as it cools.
If the CPU and motherboard are working, you should get a bios beep..fans are spinning? You reseated the power connectiors?
