Startup failure

My computer failed to start after a power cut. The power unit and fan appeared damaged and have been replaced. When switched on the fans run briefly and then stop. Any ideas?

Hi greens. Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the processor with heatsink the power supply and the power switch. If it doesn't then run the fault has to be in one of the remaining components. If you're sure the power supply is good, that leaves only the motherboard and processor. You can only tell which by substitution.

Hi greens. I see you've resolved the problem. What did you find was the cause?
