Is the fuse located before or after the main power switch?
If the answer is before the main switch, then maybe you should also check the main power switch (dirty contacts - these may cause insufficent voltages from the power supply).
Note that the (electrolytic) capacitors can be faulty but will not have visible damage, so check the DC voltages on the power supply output and try to replace the associated capacitors if the voltages seem to be too low (usually, there will be 12 and 5 volts outputs, sometimes a 3 volt output on some brands/models).
If it turns out that these voltages are not present at all, then there may be damage to the transformer driver IC (i'm assuming this is a switching power suply) - see if there is any AC voltage present at the secondary terminals of the transformer, if there is none, then the primary is most likely not being driven by the 110 V and this points to the driver IC as the possible cause. It may also be some other component in the primary section, but you said you've checked them out, so i don't know what else to suggest.
Hope you can fix it.
