Re: WONT TURN ON
Try using a different power cable, and try plugging it on another power source, if all fails you might be having an issue with the power supply, if you are using an autovoltage regulator, try checking the fuse as well

Try connecting a different power supply to it. If the same situation repeats, then it's an internal (motherboard) problem. If the problems go away, then the power supply needs to be replaced.
6 years... I'm surprised the PSU even lasted that long! The power supply is the cheapest part of the PC and usually one of the first parts to fail. Don't worry, a replacement power supply is not too expensive. Good luck!
Sounds like motherboard is not getting correct power. Could be as simple as installing a new power supply ( try tigerdirect.com for supply) or it could be as disheartening as a cracked motherboard. These are tricky problems, does your computer beep at all during startup? If it does find out the manufacturer of your bios, and look up the beep codes for that brand. Every bios has different beep codes that could be trying to tell you something.
1. Remove all USB devices such as printers, mp3 players etc etc.
2. Remove the power-cable and the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
4. Put the power-cable back in but not the battery and none the USB devices.
5. Turn the computer on
Also check the condition of the USB ports if it doesnt work and the fuse. If this doesnt work then I would recommend a repair.
So, lets say that you have double checked all cables, and everything is plugged in properly. When you hit the power switch on the case, do you hear the computer start then shut down several seconds later? Does the computer refuse to do anything but power a motherboard LED? Also, did the computer (or the person carrying the computer) bump into anything while moving it? The most minor bump can cause many problems.
I would try replacing the power supply with another one from a working PC, but just to make sure that the power supply unit is the problem. If it isn't, make sure all heatsinks are locked down appropriately and making full contact. Other than that, I don't know what you can do.
