Well it seems it is running again.
After about 45 minutes of troubleshooting I got it working. Ended up being USB related. Removed the internal (front panel ) USB hubs and a keyboard, as well as all hard drives and it was able to boot to bios...
Tried reinstalling the same USB Wireless keyboard in the rear USB port, and it gave me a '50' post error on start up and would not boot past the error. I removed the keyboard wireless hasp and the boot sequence completed... (Strangely enough, just for testing purposes, this keyboard I am using to type this, was that same keyboard that gave me the '50' error on the other system).
Booted up with another keyboard in the rear USB port, and it was fine. I was able to navigate in BIOS.
Reconnected hard drive and it gave me a boot error when it tried to boot up the OS. Switched my jumper to boot into bios and reconfugred the bios which was apparently reset.
Once that was done it was able to boot to windows, and everything (software wise)seems to have loaded up properly.
Only problem is that the USB ports now only support one device, any more then one device and they become unstable and stop working randomly. Seems the USB end of things may have partially failed?
More Problems: I also notice that I think the on board sound may not be working?
Added Problems: PCI E X16 bus seems to be faulty. My graphics card is no longer smooth, instead it is lagging between each frame, however my in game FPS is showing 120 to 200
This all happened after a windows XP automated update. kinda strange, wonder if the windows update had anything to do with the crash.

Could it be that the whole motherboard is fried?
