I was just dusting the inside of my computer and looking for the 6 pin pci-e connector, so i was touching some wires, carefully trying to not touch anything. So I saw dust at the back of my computer that was inside of my power supply so i blew lightly in the power supply, but I don't think that's what caused my computer not to turn on. The LED on the motherboard is still on, so I don't think its the power, it might be something with the wiring I think, but I don't know which ones. Thanks in advance !

The symptoms of a fried motherboard are quite long. Lets not go there yet.

I hope you had the power off and the computer unplugged from the wall while you were dusting.
You probably knocked a wire off.

By "not boot" can you be more decriptive?
Is it making any noises?
Is there anything displayed on the monitor?
Do you know if the hard drive is making any noise?
Is the fan on the CPU turning?

Since you`ve opened the case and took out the dust inside, make sure the connectors from the power button aren`t out. The connector for the power button is on the lower right side of the motherboard. In case it still doesn`t work, maybe there is a problem with the power button itself (just go with trial and error until u solve the solution). If you know what you`re doing, take the power button connector out and try to do a short with the tip of a screwdriver(it`s like u`d press the power button in order to boot up ur computer). In case none of these work, there might be something with the motherboard.

I don't know the monitor would open but not like load the motherboard etc, because my computer won't even turn on. Like literally my computer usually opens and fan and processor turns on, but now there's nothing going on, my power connectors are all plugged in still and i even took out the ram to check if its faulty ram but its not :3

Can you answer the questions?

Are you getting any beeps from it.

The light on the board only indicates you have 5vdc.
