It sounds like your power supply quit. Even though the green light is on, it's not supplying any power to the main components. When buying a replacement, look for a psu that has only one 12 volt rail. Don't go by wattage, it's very deceiving. Look at the corsair line of psu's. You should be paying $40 or more for a 400 watt psu.
