I have an ss50 and I think the motherboard has gone bad. No video so no
bios memory check visable, lights and fans do come on and drive seems
to be spinning up. I took memory out one by one and still the same
deal. Any help appreciated even if its just confirming my thoughts.

Have you unplugged everything from the unit (including hdd, cdr and
taken out all add-on cards? have you reset the BIOS? Monitor ok?
Have you tried a different video card in the machine? Do you have
a different cpu or ram you can try?

Just a couple of thoughts. Good luck.

After the above, you could buy/borrow a BIOS POST code card. Tells you
what the BIOS is doing. Very helpful if you don't have video or beep
codes or anything else to go on.

FWIW I had an SB61G2 that exhibited many of the same symptoms. I swapped
out everything I could think
of, except the power supply (was under the erroneous impression that there
was something different about the
SFF power supplies). I ended up returning the system to Newegg for a swap.
New unit fired up first time and hasn't hiccupped yet. Shuttle tech support
confirmed that symptoms were emblematic of a bad p.s.
