If nothing spins and you don't see any lights then most probably your power supply unit is faulty.

check inside the unit and see if there is a fuse it might be located near the out plug where it comes in the unit if you see one remove it and see if it burnt if it is replace it with the same type...or take it to repair shop this is a job for certified technician

BUT MAKE SURE YOUR NOT CONNECT TO ANY POWER SOURCE UNPLUG FROM THE WALL OR POWER BAR

Actually it is quite simple. If you have a standard computer box you should buy a standard power supply unit. You can buy a generic one which is cheap and can give you a good service. Buy one that is at least 450 watt.

The power supply unit is attached with four screws to the top backside of the box. Put the computer on it's side and remove them, but don't unplug the connectors yet. Since you are not an expert, the best way to do this is to hold the new unit, or put in on the side of box and start unplugging the old connections one at a time. As soon as you unplug a connector, connect in its place an identical one of the new unit. Eventually you are going ro be left with the old unit loose and the new one connected. Now place the new unit in its place in the box and secure with the four screws. It is quite simple, actually. Just do it slowly and carefully. good luck

Do they have a website where I can get it offline because I live in a small town and they don't have nothing but a walmart and 3 local computer stores that overcharge for everything. Thanks so much for your help...my report is due in two weeks so itll be more then likely more then enough time for the item to ship to me.
