My second p.c. (used largely for my children's games) refuses to show any signs of life, no indicator lights, etc. The mains lead has power but the pc appears dead, not even responding to the reset button. Can someone assist this geriatric p.c. novice?
PSU has given up is the safest bet............ so if you are sure that the juice is arriving at the Power Supply Unit then buy a new PSU, (this time no less than 300watts - more if you have a screamer chip and lots of peripherals)
superfluke, how old is the pc? If it has an AT power supply, the mains is routed through the power switch. If it's ATX, then the on/off switch is routed through the motherboard and sends a power on/off signal to the supply via the ATX power connector on the motherboard.
