Upps, sorry, I should have mentioned that after one second all lights
go off completely and the LED from the power supply *never* goes on.
I hear a relais click just after switching it on, the light on the
NVRAM card flashes once, as do those little red lights at the backside
of the MB (dialight? Whatever this is for).

After I removed ~20 screws I still can't get at the power supply,
though. Do I have to remove the six-sided stands on the MB as well?

I can't believe it's the MB, the symptoms seem to relate to a power
supply problem, IMHO.
