This problem has been going on for about a month. However, now it's more persistent. If I press the power button some dim lights come on the fans spin once the PSU and you fans just move once and nothing is law happens. I tried changing ram slots, cleaning them, checking PSU cables, changing the GPU but nothing worked. I tried using a blower to blow off the dust from my PSU it worked but now it doesn't work much anymore. I tried holding the power button and the fans just spin but the PSU and GPU fans don't. Can anyone help me find the problem?

I'll check if it works with another psu
The other thing I would say is the mobo the only reason I would say mobo is gpu and cpu fan are controlled by mobo if they dont kick on then sounds like it's failing to control more then just the gpu and cpu fan... However if the psu is failing and not providing enough power then gpu and cpu wont be able to do there job right

after buying another psu I changed the wall socket and it works with no hassles... I guess i wasted my $ with changing the psu
thanks for the help though.
