  1. Best answer
    I will assume that all the connections for cables and parts are secure and that the ATX12V connector is attached.

    Instead of attaching the wires from the case switch, just short the two power pins on the motherboard header with a metal object to test the case switch and wires to it.

    Next, I would remove the graphic card and use the motherboard graphics instead to start.
  2. My thanks to RealBeast. The problem was a broken wire to the case switch. I shorted the power pins as he suggested, and was rewarded by the psu starting.
