Ok, are all the PSU cables etc plugged into the mobo correctly? And try the plug from the power button a different way round, i had the same prob when i built mine but it powerd up when i put it on the mobo the other way.

Shouldn't be, the plug for the power switch is just a rectangle with 2 holes that can fit on the pins either way round.

biggomz, just wondering. Did it start not working out of nowhere? Im assuming you didn't just build it because its a old computer with a old psu. If it was working perfectly fine and then just stopped working, then the PSU probably pooped out. and you'll have to buy a new one.
