Computer doesn't turn on

This is my first time building a computer so I'm a little lost. I put everything together and pushed the power button but it didn't turn on. No surprise. So I took everything out except for the motherboard and power supply just to see if it would turn on, and i got it to turn on. I connected the hard drive and cd-rom, and tried to turn it on to make sure it was still working. Once again the computer doesn't start. I decide to switch out the power supply from an older computer into mine, to check if the power supply was a little faulty. The computer doesn't turn on; however, the newer power supply actually turned the older computer on, so the power supply is fine. Could the problem be my motherboard or the power switch on my case or what?

Try removing the graphics card, then turning the computer on. Let us know the results.
