I have a computer which has just been trasported in a change of address move. When it came to setting the pc up, everything was fine then I tried to turn the pc on and got nothing from the tower, but the LED on the screen lights up? Please can someone help as it is vital that I sort this out,
No nothing at all no led's on the front light up no beeps or fan noise. If the fuse had gone in the power cable surley the screen wouldn't light up as it's connected directly to the tower and doesn't have it's own power supply?
It definitely sounds to me as if something has come adrift in the move. Do as woodchip suggested again. It is not always obvious that a cable is loose. In addition to checking both ends of the IDE cables and floppy drive (I mean especially into the motherboard) make sure that all memory is properly seated. Also don't forget the power cable into the motherboard.
Some older PCs had a power switch on the back of the power supply as well as the on/off switch on the front. If your PC has one it might have been caught and switched off when handling the machine in the move!
