First try unplugging anything not really needed to POST. Aka, this leaves you 
with the Pundit + CPU + RAM (for taking out the 2 PVR-250's just leave the 
PCI-cards caddy aside). If that still doesn't give a beep either the power 
supply, the motherboard, the cpu or the RAM is badly broken.

If it does work, plug in the CD/DVD-ROM and try to put some Linux Live-CD in 
the tray, KnoppMyth should be fine. Build up the rest of the system untill it 
breaks again. Voila.

Try to google for "computer won't boot" or something similar for futher hints 
on how to find defects.
