Last night I blew a fuse in my room and now my computer won't turn on. I unplugged the power chord for a few minutes and plugged it back in and it still doesn't run at all. Is there anything I can do inside my computer? :whistling:

Yeah, just take your PSU out of the Case, open it, and look for a fuse (here's how te look: http://upload.wikime...b/b2/Fuses.jpg). Normally you can just pull it out (In some PSU's they're soldered in), look what it says on it (mostly 230V, 15A) and get a identical at Home Depot or Radio Shack. If you don't find a fuse, you have a cheap PSU and can throw it right in the trash, get a new one (a good brand, I prefer FSP) put it in and hope it works, because it could also be that not only the PSU but also the Motherboard or other Hardware (Floppy drive, harddrive, etc.) was fried.

Hope I could help :whistling:

have you checked to see if the machine works in other rooms/power outlets?

...or have you checked to make sure that he outlet you are using has ac voltage present, like maybe plugging in a lamp just to make sure? Sometimes simple things get overlooked. There should be a reset button on the front of the computer, just below the power button (you need to use a pen or pencil to push it in). If none of these fix it, go back and do as K3NnY suggested.

ok guys. thats for your input. i went out and bought a new power supply this morning and i'm installing it in right now. I was wondering if i have to do anything in the bios (if this works) because it has more waltz (350 on this one and 300 on the old one) or is all i have to do is connect everything. hopefully this works.

nope just hook it up..... you might also want to do what was said above.... And at least try to have a few things off that you had on last time.... or you might just blow a fuse again.....
