have you check the power from power unit and all leads,might be something as silly as leads not connected properly.

Sounds silly,but have you checked to see if power switch is on at the back of the pc,I know someone who never checked that,and that was her problem,Also what type of mobo is it?

Plus the PSU's mains plug and/or socket is working correctly and that a fuse, for instance, has not blown.

It could wel be that Gerrycan's suggestion may prove to be the answer - it's amazing how many people don't know that a PSU normally has its own spearate on/off switch.

Also check the CMOS jumper is not on the "clear CMOS" pins. and make sure the memory is seated correctly.

thanks everyone for the advice I have discovered that the hard drive I fitted developed a fault and was apparently to blame
