Windows 7: Rosewell Challenger help.

The computer won't start as in nothing powers up, not even the power supply, but there is a green LED light on the motherboard that lights up when the AC cable is plugged in.

Do you still have your old case ? Can you take the ON /OFF switch from it & try it on the MB ? If the LED on the MB is ON, then it is getting some sort of voltage to the MB, but maybe not 100% of what is needed.

I tried that just now, I don't think I can go back to my old one because I accidently stripped the wire from the reset switch, but either way it did not work, so im guessing the power switch is not the problem.

If you are getting a green LED, something is powering up. What I have asked is the PSU FAN running. If not it'll be a-humming'. check the PSU fan. Take an empty paper towel tube and use it to listen to various places to isolate this humming.

So I listened more closely and it sounds like a high pitched humming noise and whenever I hit the power button it increases in sound but when I let go of the power button it continues at the level it was before, and power again higher and then low, what does this mean?

Sounds like something is not properly connected to me. Try flipping the power button connector over and putting it back on.

basically, that's what I've been saying all along. There is either a dead short somewhere or it's the PSU.

If you are willing to do this before spending money, here is a guide to jump start a PSU. You will have to disconnect everything but you can leave it in the case. It won't show that the PSU will start your computer, but will show that it is putting out some power. If it is putting out power, even not enough, you should have fans turning on and led lights lighting up before it shuts down, and that's not happening.
