SOURCE: Power Problem
I recent lost power only to find that my dell pc would not power up after the power had been restored. After doing some searching at work I read that it might be a problem with the usb ports. I unplugged all of my usb devices to inspect the ports. I did not see anything out of the ordinary.
I was at a loss when I decided to try to turn it on while everything was unplugged. The machine powered up as normal. I have lost power again since that first time and the same thing worked again. I found that if it will not power up, unplug it and disconnect all usb devices. After a few minutes try to turn it on again. I think that you will find that it will power up without the usb devices plugged in. Give it a try.
I am not a pc expert, but I believe that it is pretty obvious that dell has some electrical problem with their usb ports. The large number of people complaining of this problem is evidence enough for me. I have read that many have replaced the power supply and the machine will still fail to power up.
Does anybody know if this sounds like faulty usb ports or perhaps a motherboard problem?

OH YES!!! dont even try that not only will it damage your system it might also damage YOU!!! if you are worried about your power supply check the connections from the power supply to the motherboard WHILE THE SYSTEM IS NOT PLUGGED IN!!! and if all connections are connected SECURELY than try to plug it into a different outlet

Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply connections and cpu fan. Install one stick of RAM and connect your monitor. Then try starting up. See if you get any BIOS boot messages. This will tell you that the board and processor are okay.
With what you say you've tried already, I'm thinking you might have a bad processor. Most every other problem would result in some kind of error like POST beep codes or messages on screen. If the system still doesn't boot with the bare minimum parts installed, replace the processor.
