- Getting PC to work again - need help

I have a PC I am trying to rescue form my Parents. They had a mouse
infestation and they got into the PC and obviously the PC stopped working.
I have now cleaned out the PC and removed all the crap of all boards by
using a very similar process as at
and all appears to be looking good.
I have reconnected everything and having no additional luck.
Symptom is that the MB appears to be gettng power (can see the LED's light
up) and when I push the power button the CPU fan and two other case fans
spin for a brief couple of seconds and then nothing.
So my question what could be the issue can you point me to what I should
look at first. I tought of a new case with a new Power supply, but thought
before I do that I'd ask here for some ideas.
BTW its an ASUS A7V8X MB with an Athlon 2.4Ghz CPU I think :)
Re: Getting PC to work again - need help
or was it being stored? I used to be an Electronics Tech for the USFS and
we constantly had rodent problems on our mountain-top repeaters, they would
get inside the cabinets, make their little nests and pee all over the
circuit boards. My guess is that one or more of the components on the
motherboard have been fried by a short circuit somewhere.
