Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Computer light will stay on but cant get any power up ?


Answers :

Several things to check. First, is the fan spinning on the power supply? You can detect this from the back of the PC. If it is not, then the power supply is bad. Also, if you can, remove the side p[anel and power up and notice if any of the fans are spinning or do you hear any evidence of booting, beep codes, etc. If the power supply fan is spinning and you hear nothign inside, the motherboard could be the culprit.
