PC is dead, no Power...

PC is dead, no Power...

PC is dead, no Power...


I know this is probably a very common problem.  But I am desperate!  I don’t know what is wrong?

My PC worked fine for a while, when last night when I tried to switch it on… Nothing.  Not even the fan on the PSU.  Nothing.

I opened the case to discover that the MB light is glowing when the PSU is switched on.  But switching on the machine still has no results.  I have a Lanparty NF II Ultra MB which has an on and reset switch situated on the MB for testing purposes.  Pressing these buttons also creates no joy!

The PSU I use is a generic 400W.  What could the possible cause be?  I have checked the voltage selection and that is correct.

Please I’m desperate for my PC to work again!  Any suggestions and advice would greatly be appreciated

RE: PC is dead, no Power...

More then likely, your power supply is dead. Try another one. If that no work then your mother board has fried itself since you get no post beeps. Good Luck.
