Check the leads on the power supply with a voltmeter. There are 4 connections on a power lead from the power supply. 2 are grounds and the other 2 are 5 volts and 12 volts DC.
Make sure the processor is seated securely in the motherboard along with any other cards and DIMMS (memory chips).
Does the computer do nothing at all or is it giving you any sort of beep codes when you turn it on?
Typically power supplys have a 220/110 switch in the back. I have seen it where the switch was in the 220 position and the computer worked for a short time but then fried the motherboard. Hopefully this isnt the case with yours.
