Is the motherboard dead although it hums?

Athlon xp 2600+
ddr ram 512 mb
radeon 9600 pro
windows xp sp3
500 gb western digital hd
Suddenly pc wouldnt start.
I opened it. Tested psu with a thin wire. It started. So I know its not psu issue.
Forums suggest that it may be a dead mobo. But I am reluctant about it because it gives a humming sound.
I also tried to switch the power on and the reset cords, but it didnt work. So my question is, if a motherboard kicks the bucket does it still hums?
