Alright so here is what is happening:
I try to power the system externally (Power Button on the case) and nothing happens. So thinking there may be a problem with the connection between the button and the mobo i try to power the system using the switch on the mobo (my motherboard has a handy little power button on it). This also fails. This suggests there might be a problem with my psu or my motherboard.

However, I have speakers that receive all their power through a usb port and led on the speakers is on. This suggests the mobo is receiving power.

I have tried to power the computer using several different outlet that i know are functional to no avail.

I built the computer and it is only about a weak old so it seems unlikely the psu would have failed in that amount of time.
I have a:
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W power supply
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard

I would appreciate any help/advice you all can offer.

Is this a new problem or has it been like this all the time ?

This is a new problem.
I just did the paper clip test to determine the function of the PSU. The fan failed to spin so it looks like the psu is the problem
