Hello CARL C VANPELT

I only got one solution for this connect the plug to another one at your home to see if the connector is getting power if that didnt work open your desktop and unplug everything wait 60 seconds and plug everything back on to see if your getting any power double check to see if there is no plug missing or damage if that doesnt work you can open your power supply and see if you can find any capacitators damage or other components (WARNING) do not open it if you are inexperience

Hope this help solve your problem :D

Hey, from your post it sounds like your looking for a motherboard and cannot find one, sounds like u have tested the PSU, and I'm not certain what switch is good, but if u can provide me with the motherboard number I'm sure either I or someone here can find u a mobo for this PC, alternative, I'm not certain that this PC is actually worth getting another mobo for it

Here is a similar PC and is going for 110$, this might be the route you take

Here is a mobo I think it might be the right one but I cannot confirm without the mobo number, but see the price for a full one of these is going for around the same price as the mobo itself, but let us know if u need anything else
