Whoa, that's quite a PC. It's sure needs a lot of power. Weird, 535 W should be enough. Hmm, can you explain about the symptoms? Did the motherboard LED's on when you connect to the outlet? Anything? (Well, to be frankly, seeing that AMD 4400+ X2, I'd prefer using 600 W)
He said Friends computer, not his own.
So nothing happens when you press power button?
Are there an LEDs lit on mobo?
are you sure the P1 connector (20 or 24 Pin connector) is attached and with the 4 pin connector that should be close to CPU?
what power supply is it?
To see if the Power supply even turns on without being connected to mobo, dissconnect everything but a few fans, then take the 24 or 20 pin connector, take a a paper clip, and connect the green and black wire together with the paper clip, I personnally would wear Plastic dish gloves when doing this.
