RBendle, check the capacitors aren't bulging or leaking, the USB ports aren't damaged, you have a known working PSU and they are removed from the case when testing.

ok, thanks, ive removed the front header usb and firewire ports from the machines in question anyway, the back ports built in to the motherboard all look intact as far as I can tell. I would disable them if I could boot to them, but I cant at the moment.
No capacitators appear to be leaking or bulging on the motherboard I have on the desk here either, the PSUs I have here all test fine also, just same result on the machine, a low whining noise and no booting or anything when plugged in

We find it's normally the PSU failing, discharging all power solves the issue sometimes for a little while before eventually dieing completely.
Normally replacing the power supply works, but you seem to have already tested that :/
