    Or may be a fried processor. Do you have another processor to test it out?

    The thing that screams at me is the lack of the mainboard beeps. Check to see if there is a buzzer connected to the board. You want to have one connected. Steal one from another machine if necessary. The beeps will generate a sort of code (long/short, kinda like morse code) and that will tell you a number. You can then reference it to whoever made your chipsets (Intel/VIA/ALi) and figure out what is causing the PC from POSTing.

    pentium 75?

    Did you check the battery? That box is old enough for that (that being the cmos battery to die) to happen.
