Re: my computer wont come on


You think your frustrated!   How about stating the model# and OS of your machine. It also would be nice if you could explain the problem.


Common causes:

1) forgot the power strip was off. Power cord not fully seated at rear or at wall. Outlet dead.

2) PSU fried:  (that little green light on the back) is "ON" or blinking. LIght goes out if I press the ON button.


3) Infamous M2N78-LA motherboard: a) Hard drive not found. b) NVidia chip fried.
