Computer won't turn on

  1. I have a PC that won't turn on at all.

    The little green "I'm getting juice" indicator light on the MoBo lights up, so I'm assuming it's getting power, but it won't turn over at all. No fans. No HD action. Nothing at all. I have triple checked the leads from the front panel to the MOBO. It was working fine the night before. Woke and tried to boot, and nothing.

    Any other thoughts here?

    Unplug the power cord, wait a minute and plug it back. Sometimes power management gets really confused. Play around with some PM settings.

    Instead of using the front panel switch, unplug the power button wire and try shorting the relevant pins manually with a paperclip or something similar.

    Tried different outlets. Tried waiting and plugging in. Still nothing. I haven't tried bypassing the front switch though.

    Anything else I should try?

    OK, tried bypassing the front switch with no luck. What am I looking at here a bad MoBo?
