Hi all,
My computer shut itself down while I was out of the room earlier this morning. Now it won't turn back on. If I switch off the power supply, then switch it back on and hit the power button, the fans whirl up briefly (maybe for a second) then stop again. Is my power supply kaput? Or is it something else?

Please help. Thanks.
