Help with PowerMac G4 Quicksilver

Hi, I have a dual ighz Power Mac G4 Quicksilver 2002 computer. This morning when I went to turn it on I pushed the power button and the light on the button illuminated for a couple seconds and then turned off. The computer will not start up. Nothing happens. Any ideas? Could it be the power supply?

That is the most likely suspect.

It could also be your motherboard. That is what died on my DA G4 when I knocked a glass of water on it at 3AM.
