Question about Intel Motherboard
i purchased new power supply after working for two weeks when switch pc on you hear long beeb and no booting i open the case lamp on only.
Find out what brand your motherboard is and look for the beep codes, each motherboard is different but these beeps are there to tell you the problem. if it isnt turning on when you press the button it is most likely a power supply problem like you said and you should try reconnecting all the power connectors to the motherboard and make sure everything is in place. also look for the voltage switch on the back and make sure it isn't at the wrong voltage that has happened to me more than once ;)

Tips for a great answer:
Do you hear any fans? You may need to open the computer case and look inside to see if you have any led's or fan's functioning. If you do not see any lights on the mother board or working fans, check the fan inside the power supply by looking through the fan guard. If you do not see the power supply fan working, make sure you have the computer plugged into a live outlet, and the power cord is good. Furthermore, look for a switch on the back of the power supply to make sure it is switched to the on position. If you still have no working functions of the computer, go to a computer store like Comp USA or Best Buy and purchase a power supply tester which you may find for under ten bucks. Touch the metal case of the power supply while removing the main power connector of the mother board. Always touch the metal case of the supply to discharge any static, or you could cause immediate or future damage from weakened static sensitive components. Plug the power connector into the power supply tester and make sure all lights light up. If no lights light up, you can check the fuse on the supply if it is external, or you will have to open the power supply to check the fuse. Alternatively, you can buy a new power supply which you will need to do if some of the lights on the power supply checker light up.
If the fans work on the computer and the power led's work then you may have a bad video cable connection, video card, or monitor, which will need to be checked individually. If you hear any beeps, check your manual for the description of the number and duration of the beeps which will indicate bad video or memory sticks.
I hope this helps but you can reply if you have any other questions. I think it could be the power supply with all the storms this time of year which could have killed the Power Supply which is easily replaceable.
