    The great struggle for power...Mission level: Expert!

    I've been using a micro ATX build machine, asus intel motherboard, recently the machine just cut off, stopped turning on, i've tried replugging the kettle lead into the computer and then turning it on, first few times, I would see flickers of light, now when I try, it won't even do that, so I purchased a new case which came with a new power supply, that supports all atx boards, meaning its bigger, I transfered the dvd player, the mother board, hard drive and graphics card over to the other case, hooked it up and tried booting, the machine won't switch on, but the green little led on the motherboard shows that its receiving power. so either i've hooked something up wrong, the cases power button is faulty, or the motherboard is goosed, any ideas and suggestions? thank you

    Remove the motherboard from the case and have just the cpu/heatsink and memory fitted.
    Use a known working power supply to test.
    I would suspect the motherboard.
