kellysbouncas, you can forget all the motherboard settings. If you are not getting any power to the motherboard, the problem is more basic than settings. The first thing to check is the conections relating to the power supply. Check the mains lead to the computer, the ATX power lead to the motherboard and the power on switch connector. Remember the power on switch doesn't actually route the power to the motherboard but is a remote switch that enables the power supply. If you are confident that the connections are good, then the next thing to do is to ensure that nothing is short circuiting the power supply. I think the only way to confidently do this is to disconnect everything from the motherboard, remove the motherboard from the case and stand it on an insulating mat (e.g. cardboard or plastic), and try to switch on again. If you still can't get any power through, then I think the power supply could be suspect. If you can get hold of a spare power supply I think you should try that before any of the more drastic steps I suggested above!
