My Computer is Down

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
My PC is down.  It is a 5 year old XP by HP.  The drives do not spin up, the light on the front panel does not light up and it does not even run the onboard bios.  The fan in the power supply is running but not the one in the computer or on the Chip.

I traded the power supply with a power supply from an old computer that works and nothing changed.  Is there something I am missing?
