Received computer intact yesterday. Today it will not power up! Ok, I know this computer to be solid. Usually, I've fixed or repaired my other computers BUT I have no idea about electricals. Tested HP Pavilion 780 with power connections on my main computer so I know its not a question of connections. Is there a switch besides the on/off button? Haven't connected monitor but have never had to in the past with other computers. Am debating whether to have serviced at PC World or maybe High St. Computer repair unless someone has a clue to what "ails" this computer. What does PC World charge? Any advise? Thanks.
Guys, there is no fan noise, no lights, no booting up process. There is a switich for 230! Volts and one for US 110 V. on the back. Other than that, I see no switch. I haven't connected the monitor but did transfer power connection from one computer to another with no result. The main cable connection from power connection in back to plug in is in place but again to no effect.
Try fuses in the leads, make sure power connctor/ connectors are fitted fast. reseat the ram, same with graphics card ( if it has one ). Check that the cpu fan power connector is attached to the motherboard.
