I have an old computer, its maybe 6 years old. Where I live the power grid is not very reliable - many outages, and Im guessing also power surges. Some time ago it suddenly stopped responding when I try turning it on. The front light would go on for a split-second, and the CPU vent would start working, but both would go off again immediately. Rarely I do manage to turn it on, and it loads and works OK, not countign all the virus and malware problems. But usually it wont.
I am not a computer dolt, but I am not very knowlegeable when it comes to hardware, so I would very much appreciate any help you could give me. How can determine what the problem is?
Thank you very much,
