iMac wont turn on at all, help identifying what needs replacing

I got a new imac, and I put my old one to the side unplugged for a few weeks until I got around to selling it. However when I plugged it in to reinstall the OS, I got no response when pressing the power button.

I swapped the cables between imacs and it still did not turn on. How can I identify if it is the powersupply that is the issue or some other component. And why has this happened all of a sudden just because the computer has been unplugged for a few weeks?

Is this a good question?

Can you supply the last four digits of your systems serial number so we can better identify your system.

Hold the power button down for more than 10 seconds (but less than a minute). You've lost the PRAM settings, leaving an old box unplugged will do that, and all sorts of strange behavior can result.
