    My pc won't turn on. I have tried everything the internet has said like checking inputs and cables from power supply to mother board but nothing seems to work. I also received Some advise from a friend telling me to press a power button on the mother board but this also did not work. If anyone could give any help I would appreciate it alot.

    Simple things first: you did check that the electrical outlet is supplying power yes?
    It is pretty common for the computer power supply to fail.
    They are not to expensive or difficult to replace, provided that it is a standard sized unit.
    What is the make and model of your computer? Does the power supply have a make and model?

    I built the The pc myself and I believe the power supply is a Corsair cx750m model.

    So, it sounds like you would be capable of testing with another known good power supply.
    Hopefully you have access to one, otherwise, buy one from a retailer with a good return policy.
    If it is not the power supply, then it may be the motherboard's power handling circuitry.
    You must have a premium motherboard for it to have an on-board power switch.
    Have you ruled out that the power switch on the case is not the source of your problem?
