    "We have tried all the power tricks and still nothing"...

    What exactly were the "power tricks" you tried? No lights and no fans at all? You can't "kill" a PC by using any keyboard sequence. You can corrupt a hard drive, but this "dead" system needs a new power supply first... after you check all on-off switches and power cord connections

    If you could take a minute to fill in some of your profile information that would be helpful to all members of the forum :)
    Knowing someone's location in the world can be extremely helpful, even if you just put a country.

    Also remember to post any problems or questions that you have in the appropriate forums

    With regards to your problem, try going inside your pc and shorting the pins where the power button connects. If the pc doesn't start up then try this tutorial: Suspect a Dead PSU? How to be sure

    I would also like to know what "power tricks" are :)
