I turn off my PC before i head out this morning when i came back i tried to turn it back on but i got nothing, i went into my bedroom and unplug my other computer, now i got my new power cord from my other computer and tried to plug it into my Broken PC but still got nothing.

When i open the side panel and find out the small green light on the motherboard is working. now i'm little-bit confused cause i thought if the PSU fail the mbo light shouldn't be on either. can anyone help me here??

Most often if the mobo has lights on it and the pc won't power up, that there is a problem with the mobo.

This problem will be a matter of switching components from one pc to another until you find the problem.

Start with the psu out of the Dell XPS 400 and put it in the working pc and see if it works.
