comment New computer won't boot
Thanks for your help, everybody. This answer led me to the solution. After the motherboard failed the tests described here, I went out and bought a new motherboard. This (third!) motherboard is finally giving me a working system, which I am now using to accept this answer.

comment New computer won't boot
Thanks, that was a good idea. I have done as you suggested and made an attempt to boot without the RAM, video card, or processor. Same result. I also tried removing the motherboard from the case, so that only the speaker, power switch, and power cables were attached. Same result. The PSU's fan turns on, but there are no beep codes.

Yes, I have hooked up a speaker. The case did not come with one, but I borrowed one from another computer as soon as I realized I was in trouble.

comment What are these? Are they broken?
Great answers, everybody! Rarely have I learned so much from asking a single question.
