It's highly probable it's the power supply, but not definite.

 

The only other way is to test it is with a multimeter.

You could do a very basic test to check it without a multimeter. Do you have a common paperclip?

There are also very inexpensive dedicated power supply testers, such as this one.

 

Not something you need very often, but at the price it gives you an awful lot of bang for the buck.
