e-system pc won't start

Hi,
I have an e-system that won't power up. Before i changed the power supply, there didn't seem to be any power to the pc. i have now changed the power supply and all that will light up is the memory card reader at the front.
Nothing happens when i press the power button.
Should there be lights on the mother board if it is working.
Thanks

It sounds as it the either (or both) the motherboard or the CPU(Processor) have failed.

Was the system overclocked, before it failed?, as this can cause overheating and a system failure.

If your case is a standard case,your best option (if you are confident enough) is to get a motherboard /CPU package

Some motherboards have lights on.

Carefully look inside the case a nd find the power button lead, pull it off the pins and using a small screwdriver short the two pins. If your pc starts then the fault is in the power switch.
As a temporary repair connect the reset button leads in place of the power leads.
