Try making sure Everything including cables and cards are inserted correctly and the right way round. That even included your Power Supply cables.

Its easy to knock something out or even to short something when you begin cleaning the insides of a computer and this is where real great care should be taken.

If that doesn't work get back to me and i'll see what i can come up with further.

Any beep codes?

Something may have inadvertantly been damaged due to static. Parts can be damaged without feeling, seeing, or hearing any static discharge.

I just had a 2nd look at your video....

I hate to say this but it looks to me like you've got a blown capacitor on the motherboard near to your chipset (the bit with ASUS on it).

Do me a big favour and go back and have a closer look - look for any brownness or discolouration on or near these capacitors.

A good capacitor will be black on the outside but will have a light silver coloured top on it.

It's a very good idea to touch a metal surface before you go into a PC and ensure that the area around you has an ambient temperature. Not too HOT, DRY or HUMID. Definately not WET though;)

Yep,but only if the PC is grounded and don't touch any capacitors, or you will get a shocking experience (even if the computer's powercable is disconnected)

yep them buggers hold a lot of charge for a very very long time after the power has been disconnected from your pc.:)
