PC problems

Power supply wasn't the issue, swapped it into another pc and it was fine, also tried the paperclip test, thank you @minibois. RAM also wasn't the issue, now I tried swapping the motherboard and straight away it bursts into life. Someone must have been fried in the motherboard when the power was cut abruptly. Apparently very rare but can happen. Ordered a new one for tomorrow.

1. Was the PC turned on when this happens?

2. If you take out the power cable from the PSU, does the socket look alright?

3. In what way does it not turn on?

4. Does anything turn on still, like any fans, LEDs, your peripherals, etc.?

1. It was running

2. The pins look fine

3. Nothing at all happens

4. Nothing turns on at all

In that case I would fully unplug the PSU from your PC and try the paperclip method of turning on your PSU to see if that does anything at all.

Go inside and see if all the cables are correctly seated
