Question about Dell Inspiron 531 Athlon 64 X2 4400+ 2.3GHz 1GB 500GB DVD RW Vista Home Premium PC Desktop
Yes, I would check all connectors and remove all devices to the bare bones and see if it boots up. Then re-install cards one at a time to see if you can isolate the problem to a specific card or device.

SOURCE: System won't boot
As the power light doesnt come on, the comp is not getting any power. Pls reseat the cable tht goes from the motherboard to the power button inside and check if it is turning in. Otherwise the comp has to be serviced.

you either have the boot priority in the bios off or you have improperly cabled your hard drive . perhaps you set it to boot to cd while installing the operating system and forgot to change the order back.
The floppy drive does not have to be present for the system to boot (if set to "not installed" in bios)
your boot devices are your cd/dvd rom and your harddrive.
Seeing as you've recently replaced the power supply , ime assuming you didnt dismantle the whole computer , just the power leads coming from the power supply, which means you only moved power , not data cables.
This would be the first thing to check -- power to the harddrive and cd rom, the 4 pin connector that sometimes connects to the motherboard and any data cables you might have bumped while changing the power cables. check these things and post here again.

It seems that the installation CD that you have is not a bootable CD.. must be old one.
Please down load the boot disk for windows from http://www.bootdisk.com or follow the Microsoft article link given below:
Do not be intimidated by the article, although it looks big but there is very little that you need to do, rest of it is general instructions like where can you order a new CD from etc...
Simple solution is to borrow Bootable Windows XP installation disk and install it using the serial Key that has been given to you.
Please let me know if that helps and please rate the solution if it helped you.. it will not cost you anything but will make a difference for me :)
All the best and kindly let me know in case you need any further assistance.
