Power supply unit output ok power to HDD led on

Power to board? no graphics no cpu fan, on board connection to fan?

Suggest you check power lead to board, fully home? rightway round?

yes all the connectors are ok. it would seem to be an intermittent fault, i pressed the reset button and it booted up ok, left it on for an hour every thing ok, turned it off and it wont boot up again even when i press the reset button
