My computer has been on for a whole week without being turned off and yesterday I was playing a new game on the computer, which rebooted my computer several times. At one point the computer turned off and now wont turn back on. no lights show up indicating any power, then fan does not work and the power box was hot to the touch. I tried to turn on the computer this morning and it is still dead. Can anyone help me?

Thanx

Mmm... Did you try physically unplugging the power cord from the wall and the pc? I know many systems come with a surge protect feature. This requires the user to completely unplug from the electrical source in order to power the system back on after a surge or system crash. I don't know all the details - but you might try that to get the power to come back on. If there's no power then you're power supply is probably dead - even if you fried something on the board it should still come on when you power on.

Drivers are current. Simply the presence of the graphics card in the slot appears to prevent display to turn on.
