Ok guys this is for my friend who isnt that good with computers he bought a brand new computer from digital promo a known Uk pc shop and everything was fine but i was talking to him this morning and he said his computer will not power on at all :-S

(1) i told him to unplug everything and replug everything again and see what happens still nothing

(2) he recently bought 4gb ram and installed it i told him to remove that and try and power on the computer still nothing

(3) i told him how to reset his bios and still nothing :o 

(4) i told him to use his motherboard graphics instead of the pci express one still nothing

(5) i told him to use an alternative power wire for the back of his pc

me being stumped on how the computer has no power whatsoever he said the little green light on the board that shows if the board is receieveing power is not lit at all

But then as i was talking to him he said he heared a rattle in the case and showed me this thing i think its a motherboard capaiciter but not sure

If you can't access the BIOS, then the motherboard is fried.
