Quick question..
i'm trying to start up a computer but there seems to be no power at all, the power lead is working so i think it is power supply or switch is there an easy way to test this or do i have to change the power supply to find out it possibly could be something else? Thanks for any advise.

Possibly the psu or mobo.
Changing the psu is the quickest and easiest way before finding out if the mobo has died.

Have you tried the power lead on another pc,reason being...you said its ok.

You have checked the fuse in the lead, so could be the fuse in the PSu but for diagnostics try this:click here

i tried the psu on another pc and found that it is not working, but when i try a working psu in this pc still nothing. i have looked over the motherboard to see if there is any evidence of a blown circuit but im not sure how to tell... could the mobo have blown along with the psu??
