Remove any add-on PCI/PCI-E/AGP cards except the video (if there is one).
Remove all memory modules.
Power on. You should hear some beeps, probably one long or one long and two short to indicate no memory was found. If so, power off, plug in one memory module then power on, what happens.
If nothing, then use a bright flashlight and examine the tops of all the capacitors on the system board. They should be flat, with nothing leaking out. If any are bulging or leaking then the board is bad and needs to be replaced.

Are you sure the power supply you tried is good? If you have another similar system, you could borrow the power supply from there to try in this one.
This must be a fairly old computer. Is it worth spending any money on or would it be better to get a new one?
