stupid question, does the power supply have an on off switch on the back that needs to be turned on.

Have him check his power button wire connection to the motherboard

Hate to ask an even more stupid (jeesh, is that correct??) question, but did he check the outlet to make sure it has power? Believe me, it's happened :(
