Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

After an electrical storm my Acer m1640 has no power although the mains power lead is intact. Are there any internal fuses that could have blown


Answers :

Hi,
Sorry, no fuses. Lightning is a major cause of computer failure. Failure could be a power supply, motherboard, processor or the whole system.

Next time get your computer a good surge protector. They are cheap and protect your computer from electrical mishaps.
