trouble NForce 2 Won't boot problem

Right, here's the story...

I decided that my older Mesh PC (which is obvoiusly out of warranty by now) could be used as a sort of testbed, and have been using it as such for some time fact it's managed to keep some of the components it's been testing, making it pretty nifty at running BF2 and other graphics intensive games

During a test, I put an additional HDD (Maxtor Diamond Max 7200Rpm 80Gb ATA) in, in addition to the current standard Seagate Barracudda 7200.7Rpm 80Gb. On poweron, the computer fans speed up...but nothing all...

The hard-drive lights then light and stay on for an indefinate time, so I decided to take it out...I've failed that HDD obviously! Now though, it still won't turn on, and even if I switch to KNOWN working components, nothing happens...

I've taken out the battery and must've reset the bios after god knows how many attempts, tried restore jumper positions and set stuff back to defaults but nothing!

Can anyone help?!?! Any suggestions, however simple are very welcome

Thanks for any help!
