Won't Boot

W2K, 2 P 3 666's, 512 Ram, AmptronM790MR Dual Socket 370 Mobo, AMIBIOS dated 11/10/2000 S

I loaned this machine to my sister, when she got home with it it wouldn't boot, I'm guessing it was bumped.

When started it boots to the B&W screen that says "Starting Windows" where it scrolls across the bottom and then reboots. It constantly reboots no matter how long you try. It beeps once which is normal.

I have tried another power supply, video card, CMOS battery and monitor. I have disconnected everything but the video and HD. I have pulled and reset the Ram. But it still won't boot.

I didn't pull and reset the CPU's, I didn't want to do that if I didn't have to. Does anyone have any ideas? I suspect a bad mobo, but I hope its something else.
