Two days ago I shut down my PC using the windows XP 'turn off computer' process. Yesterday I tried to power up the PC using the on/off button on the front - no response!
I checked the main power swittch on the rear - ON
I checked the 'kettle' lead was in - OK
I checked the plug was in the socket - OK
All other devices connected to the same power socket were ok (printer/speakers/router etc)
Also the yellow glow from the ethernet cable socket (connecting my PC to my router) was on.
This morning even the yellow glow had gone......
I swapped the kettle lead for another....still no joy.
I am hoping that there is an easy-to-replace-fuse inside the PC or something, but before I remove the cover and start poking around I thought I would check with you guys.
My PC is four years old (no warranty left).
I consider myself to be a '6' where 10 is an IT genius and 0 is 'what is a computer?'
