Arrow Cant get p4 to start....

I got a Gateway P4 for a lot i bought.

i cleaned/dusted everything.

Pluged into power, and the green light on the mobo came on, good thing.

Then i tried to start, and it didint, bad thing

I tried 2 diffrent Switches and another PSU. same thing...

The weird thing is on one of the PSU, theres a test button,, and when i held that the system showed signs of power. (fans moving)

Have you checked to make sure your motherboard isn't shorting out? Try rebuilding your system outside of the case on an anti-static sheet, and see if the problem still persists.

Also, check all the power cables are plugged in properly. Sounds daft, but I've had a friend do that and suprise suprise, it didn't start up.
