Hi ,
is there any fans running at all . If so the card has gone , but it does sound like the power pack has gone , which should not be a problem in getting a new one . Hope ive helped

ty civi, i unplugged it and when i plugged it back in the tower powered up...before i had no fans, nothing, it was completely dead but then it also powers the monitor which was working fine.....oh well i think its time for a new one....ty for your help

Lisa this maybe just the time for a spring clean...or wet summer clean :-)

Open up the case and check all fans are clear of dust and grime,if you have not opened the case before...you may get a shock to how much dust will be inside clogging those fans.

This could be the result in why your system didnt boot correctly,especially if the computer is a 2-3 years old.

Although the Monitor connects to the PSU it does not draw power from it. The PSU needs replacing
