Try another Power Supply & install it with no power-switched off @ mains.

If its an *identical* motherboard you wont have a problem, worst case scenario you may have to re activate Windows.

No sign of power! Did you try placing your tongue on any of the 8 pin plugs with the PSU turned on!

You haven't said what make model your motherboard is it may be that the motherboard has bad caps (capacitors)
