Computer wont power up and i suspect the power switch. Is there anyway of testing this and can you power up the computer by bypassing the switch.

If the system has a reset switch you could swop the mobo conection around between that and the on/off switch if it boots the switch is dicky.

ok, thanks for the info, but no reset button. it is a neighbours computer and somebody told her its the mb. dont no how he can possibly think that. there is power going through because the green led on the board is lit.

It is posssible to "short" the mobo connection with a small screwdriver,it is somthing i havent done,but i know people who have just to test the theory u have.So i will let those who have tried this approach advise).
