refuses to power up.....
-check if the power button is connected correctly to the motherboard
-try doing the the paper clip trick to see if the PSU boots on its own :

P3 Setup- Intel 1.0ghz , 512Mb SDRAM , ATI 9200 128MB, 2x 40GB HD, Asus CUSL-LV

Your power supply actually might be broken. Power supplies fail in two ways: sudden death and slowly over time. When they die suddenly, the computer will not start and the fan in the power supply will not turn. If this is the case replace your power supply.
