Answers :

Usually it is the Power Supply or The components of the PC. You will have to troubleshoot. To find the exact culprit.\015\012
\015\012\015\012You will have to troubleshoot and find out where the fault is. \015\012Here is what I do…..\015\012First, check the Power is ON, cable is OK and IN PC, \015\012Then open PC up, and remove all power connections from everything EXCEPT the Motherboard Connector.(s) (Remember where they go, draw a diagram etc) \015\012Power the computer up, and does it switch on? NO, Then, remove the RAM, does it Boot up? YES Faulty RAM, replace. If it still does NOT then your Power Supply Unit is probably Faulty.(But it may be the motherboard) either way we need to test more with a known good power supply. \015\012With know good PSU, plug this one into the Motherboard Connection(s). Does it work, YES. Problem Solved.\015\012OK back to Frst: Because it DID go the PSU WAS OK, \015\012The MB was OK & the RAM was OK, \015\012Now then we plug in each of the other Items, DVD Hard Drive, etc, etc. One-at-a-time, until we find the one that stops the PSU. (It has protection and will "Shutdown in event of a fault") \015\012The one that stops the PSU is your culprit, replace whatever it is.
