Computer is back up
It was the power supply. I had a chance to try out my new power supply tester, and it said both the old and the "new" were good. Switched them back; still bad. OK the tester is not to be trusted. For years I've been testing power supplies with loading resistors and meter. Seems this cheapy tester MIGHT detect a bad power supply... possibly, but not with it's feeble internal loading resistors.

The power supply I installed is in fact not actually new either, it is the old power supply I took out a year ago, disassembled, cleaned, replaced the cooling fan and re-soldered some connections.

The power supply I just took out was purchased only 14 months ago and was probably in the computer less than a year. I don't know why it failed. Appears to be good quality. Examined the receipt and manual. Not sure if it has a warranty or for how long. I'm not going to try repairing it until I am sure about the warranty.
