Put the RAM back in the motherboard - read somewhere where a power
supply has to have at least a 10% on the main supply (presumeably the
motherboard connector) to run. Had a similar problem here: hooked up
bare motherboard and video card - no go. (PSU was known good though
possibly the fan was starting to stick.) Added floppy, still nothing.
Added memory - now it booted!
