I had a spare power supply put in. Unless the spare one is not working as well. How do u test it? I know when plug in, the monitor has power.

It could be the power on button sticking on the case.

If u press this, does anything happen?? Does it turn on??

If not, the easiest way to find out, would be to open the case, and short the pins on the motherboard that turn the power on.

What is the worse senario? Can the motherboard be the culprit ?

Could be a number of things.
Motherboard, CPU, RAM.
