✔ Best Answer
Try plugging it in directly to the outlet as a test, or better yet, a different outlet.
If you are getting nothing at all out of it, you are most likely dealing with a power supply that is gone. The best way to test this is to swap out a known good one if you have one or can borrow one from another machine or a friend.
If you are getting some lights or sounds, it is still possible that some of the voltages are still working but not all so I would try the same thing if possible. Sometimes, a local store will sell you a power supply under the condition that if your system is still not working, you can return it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
