Default Could use some computer help

So my 2nd computer, use it for backing stuff up, d/ling, ripping ..etc crashed a few months ago (No POST just blank screen). I don't use it a whole lot but would like to get it going again for minimal $$, and time to fix is not an issue. Tried a new PSU same thing, fans turn but no BIOS on the screen when taking a feed from the onboard mobo VGA port. Any ideas how I can narrow it down to CPU or motherboard or even memory?

Some Q's:
Should a mobo POST without a CPU?
Should a mobo POST without memory?

I'm thinking of grabbing a cheap CPU (mobo is LGA775):
