Dead on Arrival

Just returned from hols, went to switch on my PC and as I turned on mains power I heard a short "buzz" and then no power to the PC at all !!! Monitor, Printer etc are all fine but nothing from the main unit. Have done the obvious and checked fuse, tried different power lead etc but to no avail.

Does anyone have any other suggestions or remedies? Could it be serious / terminal ??

TIA

Yeah i agree with Gongoozler. i had that happen to my work computer once (it was a pile of the best cow dung i have ever used). eventually whilst using it, the computer froze, i heard a buzz and a puff of smoke! it was a fairly spectacular failure which i was proud of (since i had been trying to get a new one off them for weeks!).

so try the power supply unit. most probably the problem.
