PC No Power but..............

  Jlen 17:25 04 Jul 2007

When I come home in the evening and hit the 'On' button (Dell 5100)nothing happens ,zilch!'dead as a dodo, power is coming thru to an external DVD Writer from the PC (USB)and power to the monitor is ok then I do something really scientific!! I change all the plugs around to different sockets - randomly and 'bingo' when I press the 'On'button my Dell powers up as normal.....until the following evening and its Groundhog day again

Any pointers would be appreciated

thx in advance

That one of the leads (probably the one which powers the PC) Has a loose or faulty fuse in it, by moving the plugs you may be re-seating it.

I would check / replace that fuse first.
