In trying to boot my computer from the power button there is hardly any response. When you push the button it lights briefly then goes out. There's no power there at all.

Can you :tazz: ?

opne of three possibilities.

1) your PS [power supply] is dying

2) a wire is not connected properly or has been burnt from usage

3)the button itself is dead or dying.

have you been in the case at all since you got the machine? if you have, then check your wiring for the button.

if you have another one available you could always swap out the ps and see if that helps.

finally if not, try replacing the power button, its cheper then buying a ps if that is the problem.
