450W Xion PSU

If it was unused, it's 99% likely a DOA mb.

but even if its the PSU, shouldnt it be able to power on the system for less than a sec?
My friend is going to bring another PSU later, so we will see if that is it.

Yep.

My money's on the PSU too.

You want a PSU that can supply at least 550W to that set up.

Damn Xion, thats like the 3rd one that died out on us.
I told the guy he might need to spend a max of $100 for a new PSU.

newegg is cheaper... but i dont think he wants to wait...
Thanks to all that have helped.
