Try removing your board from the case and plugging in just the video card and RAM.  Make sure that you don't statically shock your components and set your board on a piece of cardboard or a clean table.  I've seen issues with things in a case, weird things. . . things that are unexplained.  Things that have been documented on "X-Files".  Try the bare-bones without drives to see if you can get your rig to POST.  It can post without drives installed.

If you can get it to post outside your case, maybe something is shorting the board somewhere.

After switching out the RAM, I'd also suggest clearing the CMOS just in case.

If you have ever tried to overclock a system before and say you take it too far, and then the computer won't boot up at all, you would try to clear the CMOS which would clear the settings and set the system back to defaults. Its worth a shot anyway, just in case there is something in the settings that may be causing it not to POST.

i had tried that before i swapped out the RAM. could the RAM have caused the problem and the mobo just needs to get reset?

Anything is possible at this point.

Either that or get rid of that ECS board, and go with a real one.  :P
