It sounds like another victim of the notorious "Bestec" power supplt.
Open the computer & get the power supply where you can see the label.
If it says Bestec more then likely the power supply has failed & fried the motherboard in the process.
Bestec power supplies are well known for that.
If it is a Bestec you may get lucky & simply replace the power supply, but I wouldn't count on it !
The only way you wwill know for sure is to actually try another power supply.
I would NOT hook the power supply that's in it to another motherboard though.
The power supply can make the fans spin & appear to be working but still be bad.
