Motherboard or Power Supply?

HP Pavillion m9000
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

My computer was working great.  I went out of town for a week and upon my return, it would not turn on.  The green light on the power supply was lit but that was as far as it went.  I purchased a mobo but this did not fix the problem.  I am not real computer literate but have experience. 

 

Does this mean that the power supply is gone since no power seems to go beyond the light?  If not, can you tell me what to try?
