Desktop will not power on
Posted on 2006-06-23
A friend's desktop will not turn on.
After plugging it in, an LED lights up on the power supply.
I then turn on the computer.
The light turns off, the fan on the power supply rotates breifly and the cooling fan on the CPU turns on momentarily as well. After, all turn off and the light on the power supply remains off.
I try this process again and nothing happens.
However, when I unplug the workstation and replug it, the light turns back on and I'm able to go through the same proccess.
My guess it is the power supply.
I don't have a replacement PS or a multimeter.
I'm thinking about going to Best Buy and picking one up. If it's not the PS, they let you return it.
Anyone have any ideas?
