Centris 610 no boot

Well damnit anyway...I've been horribly busy, haven't been here in a long time and I've recently been using my centris a lot lately and it has worked flawlessly.. Until last night. I turn it on and after the boot chime I get the chimes of death - instantly. The monitor never wakes up, no image is displayed. The keyboard posts. The CD rom or floppy are never accessed (ejected)

I disconnected everything and even removed the ram and vram. Same thing. I reseated everything and same story.

Any ideas?

I had to start recapping my pizza boxes a while back.  The 660av was first then the 6100's so maybe do a good cleaning and the hair dryer trick to see if you can get it going.  That would confirm caps.

I had caps done recently - replaced with ceramics I believe. But that's not to say one of those went bad.

I have a PSU for a c610 if you think it might help. I've been using it as a bench supply so it wouldn't be that big of a deal to part with it...
