hp compaq dx2250 power problem

  [email protected] 18:19 29 Oct 2015

one day it just would not turn on the green light on the motherboard is always on when the power cable is plugged in

i checked all connections inside first i reseated the ram i then took out all the cables and held the power button for 30 seconds it turned on but nothing came up on the screen turned off, repeated 30 second hold on power button this time, the fan whizzed up for a split second and now the power button has no effect

any ideas?

thanks in advance, i'm trying to fix this for my mother's friend who would prefer not to have to buy a new pc
