Dell Inspiron 530 I turns on and nothing happens

\015 The monitor is in stand by mode until you hit any key but nothing happens. I disconnected and reconnected all cables and nothing. The mouse nor the keyboard seems to be responding. Help please. The computer is only a year old.\015

1.) If when hitting the power button, ABSOLUTELY nothing happens, no fans come on, nothing- You need a new power supply most likely. I see this all the time in my shop.
