    Sounds like a dead PSU. Hopefully, if it is, she didn't fry the rest of your box too.

    Do you have a tester, or a spare you know works?

    Maybe time to use the parts from this machine and as per your other thread, build a new rig. That way you have a machine that you know will work, 2 it will be faster / better as newer Mobo / RAM , CPU and power supply etc etc

    If you have a bit of money left over you can continue to try and get this one working

    If you do get it working great, you can have two machines and at worst if you can't get it working or it continues to have other issues then you have a new machine
