If it's not turning on at all it has to be the power supply. Do you have another to swap?

Default Re: No Power.

You can test to see if the problem is your power supply by doing the following:

1. Straighten out a staple so that it looks like an 'U'
2. Make sure the computer is plugged into the wall.
3. Place one end of the staple into the molex connector for the motherboard with a green lead coming out of it. Make sure it touches the metal contact in the whole.
4. Then insert the other end of the staple into any of the wholes with a black wire coming out of it. Once you make contact with the metal contact in this whole; your PSU fan should spin up if it is working. If it does not spin up then the problem most definitely is your PSU.
