Have a pc with no power i took it apart and tasted for power at power unit and had it also unpluged a fuw components and pluged back in. got light on mother board. could it b a bad switch to pc??

Answers :

Yes, switch could be bad
Usually with Dells it could be the power button, however base on my own experience 99 percent of the time its the powers supply.If you have a atx power supply handy try it .It will not fit in the case as dell make their power supply different from others.If you all your hardware spin up then that answers your question.
