power supply seems to work and the 2 fans inside the computer seem to but running alot faster then normal. i have re-seated every connection/wire. screen remains black and i dont hear any beeps or got any blinkin lights. i looked for led light on motherboard but doesnt seem to have one.

i have a hunch that its the power supply or the motherboard but limited experience so im not very sure. i have read many other posts and tried everything step by step with no progress. Help me! thanks for any help in advance.

jsut tried repalcing power supply with a known good working power supply and nothing changed so im leaning on it being the motherboard.

To hear beeps, speaker must be connected on the motherboard. Yeah i believe it's a psu problem. Borrow a psu from a friend and try it.
