I have a computer that isnt turning on. I tested the power supply with a power supply tester and everything works when i test it. I unplugged all pci cards, all led cables and stuff like that, and left just the power switch cable hooked up. and it still doesnt power on, any ideas on what might be going on???

Could you give us the speces on the computer? RAM, HD, ver WIndows,.. Did you change anything prior to it failing. How did you check the power supply?

the tester i got it just plugs into the power connector to the motherboard and has an led on it and if it turns on it works, but whatever,

i tried a different power supply, no luck,

tried with everything unplugged, all usb and all expansion cards,

tried to short out the power switch pins,

and cleared the cmos, still no luck, the only thing left is the motherboard, could that be the problem???

Have you checked the motherboard plug to make sure they are seated(remove and reinsert).
