I assume new power box is a new power supply. Why did you replace it? What did you replace it with?

could be a bunk power supply, cpu, or the onboard video or mobo is shot. I don't recognize the beep codes. Was there really just two beeps?

You have a board issue. Something wrong with the motherboard. Try to reset bios. And plug off all usb device from the PC.

Yes you can reset bios without Keyboard. First, plug off power cord from power supply of the machine. Open up inside the PC. You will see bios battery on motherboard. Take off the battery and wait like 20 sn. After plug in back.

I'd suggest you find a standard keyboard and mouse or at least the adapters for the moment and try booting the system on basics. Jazz
