It's quite an old pc and has had a tough life I'm just trying to work out what part has died or what is happening.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello and welcome to TSF. Perform a bench test as explained here https://www.techsupportforum.com/for...er-918754.html

If you have a spare power supply, try it.

I tried it with a spare PSU. Pluse just the motherboard and cpu out of the case. Still the same issue couldn't even get a beep code.

Try a skeleton setup with nothing else except the following:

Motherboard
CPU + Heatsink/cooler
Power supply

Does it power on and stays on? If it does, do you hear any beeps? If it still won't stay on, the motherboard is most likely toast.

I tried that and it still has the same issue. I think the motherboard may be dead.
