My XP tower PC will not power up. I have changed the PSU thinking it was that but still did not power up. I thought maybe its the switch on the front of the case, but that seems fine. I cant find any fuses to replace. Anyone any ideas on what to check next?

Are all the Fans Spinning up? For starters do you hear the post beep??

Is there an on/off switch on the back of the computer (in the PSU area)?

Sorry if this is obvious but.....
have you checked the fuse in the plug and the lead?

No fans are spinning up. There is no beep at all. There is an on/off swich also on the PSU and this is switched on.

ther is power to the PC - I have tested it using a multimeter

I tried shorting the system connectors on the motherboard for the power switch and no joy. The switch works but no power to motherboard. I guess the motherboard has gone. Oh well that a new PC for me then...
