Have a Dell XPS 200. Computer was on overnight when our power went out and then came back on. It was plugged into a power strip with surge protector. Now it will not turn on, no power, no lights, no fan comes on. It's just dead. Unplugged it, plugged directly into wall, turned the switch on the back of & on. NOTHING. What could cause this? Power supply, mobo? Could the bios battery cause this? Thanks!


Most probably, the fuse in the power supply has been burnt out when the power came back. Surge protectors only protect against voltage surges, not against rise in electric current (Amperes). The fuse inside your computer's power supply protects again ... PC Desktops

We've had a Gateway 816GM desktop for about 3-years and except for the usual PC problems it's been fairly reliable. However, in the last few days it started locking up, no video, then it starting hanging and finally it will now not boot up at all. The HD light on the front doesn't even light up. A friend did a quick look at it and suggested the motherboard was gone. I'm assuming if the hard drive was bad the computer would at least boot up, but I don't even get the start up screen or any
