Need to determine which PC component is failing?

My 6 year old PC was working fine, but started freezing a few minutes after booting up recently. Not an OS issue, because I was fiddling with the BIOS settings when the same thing happened. Also happened when I was running the Windows 7 Memory Diagnostic utility. I took apart everything, cleaned the dust (which was a lot) and then put it back together. Now it won't boot at all. No display, no error beeps, nothing. The CPU and PS fans work when I press the power button though. I removed the hard disks, graphics card and tried to boot with just the bare essentials, i.e. the PS + motherboard + 2GB memory DIMM and it still won't work. Based on the above, I need to know if the motherboard is dead, and how to identify it as such. Thanks!
