Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My tower wont come on - PC Desktops


Answers :

Have you had an electrical storm lately? Do you use a surge protector? Those can fail, too. How old is the PC? Power supplies can sometimes only last a couple of years. If you've added a lot of drives or a lot of other hardware on it, it could tax the power supply until it fails. Open the side of the tower. As a first test, notice what happens when you hit the power button. Do you see any\015\012of your fans start to turn (just a turn or two) and then quit? That's\015\012a failed power supply.Remove the power cable before continuing. Then, disconnect the CD's and hard drive power connectors. They are usually white with four big pins on the right side of the drive. Plug in the power cable and try the power button. If it starts up, you've maxed your power supply and need to upgrade to a larger one.
Can you be more specific.. as what you mean by your tower won't come up?... do you mean that it won't power up? if so than and if you haven't checked the power cable, please do so and if the power cable and the fuse are good than please tell me what execatly happened when you last used your tower.
