To tell if you have power to the motherboard and the MB is trying to work is to look to see if any fans start running, like the CPU fan. If fans are running you can check the memory and video to see if they are working. I usually replace the parts with known good parts. Beyond that it is either the MB or the processor that has died when nothing happens at all.

Any ideas? The PS is the exact same as the one that came out. Don't understand why the HD won't power up.
Really could use some help on this one.

You said, 'the HD won't fire up' so does that mean that your computer can not detect it in BIOS or does it say any errors?

I then made that HD a Slave in my other system and it did the same thing. I feel that this power spike took out this HD as well.

What really had me worried was the fact that I took their HD out of that bad system..and put it in a good system...and it still had no physical power up on it. In the good system, I had made it the master and then a slave...it wouldn't do anything...as I suspected with no power firing it up.
