Thread: computer wont start up :/

  1. #1
    Yea nothing happens if I click the power button, my guess is my psu is dead, the mobo lights dont show up, what are your thoughts?

    Well this is what happened, lately after I shut off my computer my led fans will start blinking on and off, the fans will roate a notch. So it was 1 am yesterday and I was tired so I just shut off the main power (AC adapter). I wake up at 6am and I try to boot it up, nothing happens. Any ideas?

    Edit >> 450watt generic psu that came w/ case
    ----
    Dont psu usually explode when they break? lol anyways another note my computer was on for like 2 days straight usually I let it rest, i dont think that should really affect it.

    Check the fuse in your plug first.

    Sounds like you had a loose connection.

    Or a psu that's on it's way out.

    In general, Generic PSU = disaster waiting to happen.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    We don't have plug fuses in North America, just a fuse in the appliance (usually) and the panel...
