It is well known that when the Bestec power supplies used in Emachine and some HP/Compaq PCs dies from either old age or power surge it usually take the motherboard with it. All the other peripherals wiill start but there will be no signal from the motherboard/CPU.

most likely a terminal hardware issue but I would still troubleshoot it to make sure.....

No you need to jumper the green and a black on the mother board plug to turn on the power supply then you can test all the leads with a multi- meter
