My desktop computer was working fine, I had just finished some work and set it to run a Windows Defender scan. I returned an hour later to find it had just died. The fans were still running, but the monitor was complaining of no input and the hard drive was silent. The reset button on the front did nothing, nor did the power switch.
Removing the power cable turned everything off, but replacing it and it returns to the same state. Fans on, DVD tray will open, close and spin, but nothing happens. No monitor signal, no hard drive spinning.
Does anyone have any ideas what may have happened?
I got my last one at a Computer fair but you buy on line, or PCworld Maplin a Antec should be OK etc. If you can, try to get the PSU in your hand to see how heavy it is. As the heavier the better. get at least a 350 watt more if you use power components or have several drives
