NOW IT WON'T START AT ALL.I HAVE A GREEN LITE ON NEXT TO THE POWER CORD SO I'M NOT SURE IF ITS THE START BUTTON OR THE POWER SUPPLY OR SOMETHING ELSE. PLEASE HELP.


Answers :

Check to see if the power suply fan is working it may have overheated it and shut itself down (happened to me once and replaced the whole power supply) then worked fine...good luck
