Thanks Stan. The motherboard has onboard video. But the behaviour of the
machine is the same with or without the PCIe video card.

And the machine does not boot anymore with any of the RAM modules.
Assuming that all the memory modules were not zapped together, it is
quite likely the CPU is toast. I can only check this using another
machine like this. I might be able to do that tomorrow (and some
memtest86 too).
