Re: My computer will not turn on (light at on-off switch doesn't even come on).

Hi,

  First of all Check the status of The power supply light . if it is flashing or if it off then , checked the red Voltage selector is at 115V or 120V. Then take all the cables off from the computer and then press and hold the power button on the tower for 20sec. If it still doesnt work then Try to open the tower and reseat the power cable and the power button cable from the Motherboard, if its still doesn't work then its an issue with Motherboard.

Thanks, I'll see what i can do.  I've taken the panel off and the on-off switch flashes the first time and the fan wheel starts to turn and then the light immediatly goes off and the fan stops.  I'm not sure how to get to where the switch is?
