I assume you have been through the obvious possible causes -

- fuses in house circuits / plug to PC
- master on-off switch on back of PC
- on-off switch on front of PC
- if no beeps, lights, sounds of fans spinning up, suspect dead PSU

I have been caught out by the third on this list. Having ruled out the first and second, I jumped to the fourth and installed a replacement PSU in a PC which was completely dead. When it still wouldn't start I investigated a bit more closely and found the 5p switch on the front of the box was defunct.

Just tried switching my main machine on for an afternoon session


No lights, no power on.

I may be away from tonites session, and tomorrow, if I cannot find the fault.

All I did was switch off as normal last night, now nothing
