Default Dell Dimension 8400 won't start

My dell desktop won't start up, there is no light on on the power button, none of the letters in the back are lit. I have checked to see if the power supply was working and it is. I replaced the MB because there was some bulging parts on the original MB, but it is still not powering up, anyone have suggestions?

Okay. Helps to know what the model number is. Have you checked to make sure that it is plugged in, if it is plugged into a surge strip, that the surge strip is turned on and plugged in.

If you have tried different outlets and checked the power supply, and all cables are plugged in correctly to the motherboard for the machine, fans are plugged in, I would say that the machine is FUBAR.
