Startup Problem on Dell E520


Active Member
Hi, im looking at a Dell Dimension E520 that will not start for Dad.
When you plug in the power lead the power indicator light on front goes orange and fan in PSU and chassis fan to CPU come on as does a orange 'standby' light on the mobo. Hold finger on power button but pc does not switch off power light does not turn green and no display to monitor, not even bios info. tried with all memory an other usbs disonnected but no joy

Have tried a spare psu and an old PCI graphics card but still no video output. Any ideas please ?
