Hi, i left my pc switched onthis morning and then it suddenly lost power and died. I looked at the back and my ethernet adapter lights were on and the monitor worked which came off the same socket but i press the power switch and it wouldnt come back to life. So i switched it off at the mains and then on again and it worked. Any ideas?
If its working now, the fault is probably between the mains switch and the PSU. I dont think it'll be the mobo or beyond (and very much hope not!). Do all the basic checks - wires into wall socket, then surge protector block, then the plug on the PSU, then the PSU. At least you'll be looking at the cheaper bits first. You never know there may have been a power surge, and your block worked properly!
