Hi
I have got ASUS Motherborad P5e,,,,yesterday it did POST today it did not work.

I can see SB LED lights up in green color

I removed all cards and RAMs and HD,,,,only CPU left, and shorted the pin for POWER SW,,,still noting worked, CPU fan wouldn't spin at all.

Unplugged the power supply cable that is hooked to motherboard and hooked it again

If the motherboard SB LED lights up, the power supply is almost certainly working.

Is there any other troubleshooting should I consider ?

Thanks

If this is the LED that is always illuminated even if the case power switch is off, not true.

That only shows that one small part of the PSU, the standby power supply, is working. It has nothing to do with the main section of the PSU that provides operating power to the computer.

I did try this power supply on my old PCs (i.e another motherboard) and its fan and the CPU fan both of them span.
PSU is BESTA PT-550W
