99.9% of the time dell, HP, etc will mess with the front panel connect to you can't reuse there case. Not a metal hump in the mobo area, because it can short there stuff out too.
Some of the old Dell Dimensions and Compaq Deskpros do, in fact, have metal humps that line up exactly with their motherboards, but will cause a standard micro-atx to short out. I've seen this.

I always scrap their front panel connectors and make my own. In fact, if you look at the system pictured in my profile (the Dell Dimension), the internal switch, LEDs, and front USB's are not the originals.

This is a good question. The smell is really obvious.

Back on topic..

Jump start the PSU...err no wait.. Assuming that the PSU is bad; if you disconnect your PSU from the rest of the Computer it should turn on right?

that sounded confusing too me a bit, but i think you'll know what i meant.

Thank you for your suggestion, but i am pretty sure that it is the power supply, if you go back through the thread you will see all the things that i have tried and how we came to the conclusion that it is more than likely the PSU.

ASRock is not the most reliable source for computer components. At least not in my experiences. It might have just died, sometimes it happens and you just have to go through the endless RMA process. Hope you get it resolved!

lol, we all start somewhere , and yes i totally agree with you that asrock is quite horrible, but if you read through the thread that is not the problem in this case.

Reading more of the post. I understand it is a power supply issue, these are quite common. Really the only brands of PSU's I have ever trusted are Corsair, OCZ, ULTRA, and the less common NZXT ones (More or less because I have had great results with mine). Usually you will have stable and reliable results with these brands. It is also just one more component you have to check off the list when more issues present themselves when and if they do.
