"Power-Box" faulure???

Try unplugging everything from the machine except monitor, keyboard and mouse and try starting it.

Try with a different lead if possible,

Check that the powerswitch on the back of the PSU has not been turned off.

Open sides of machine to see if there are any lights inside on mobo.

Sorry bit of a novice on the hardware side. How can I check that?

Does the computer at all make a sound (the CPU, aka the base/tower, not the speakers or VDU)

Just plugged into mains with nothing attached and still nothing

No nothing No sounds no lights

can you hear the fan on the base/tower??? or doen't the power get to the system??? Have you tried pulling all the cables out of the computer and putting them back in??

Then if the cables are in correctly, the power-box may be to blame... I suggest that you take it to somewhere like PC Wolrd to get a system dianostic test done to see if the hardware is to blame!!!
