Hi,
I went to bed and my computer seemed to be working fine - I leave my computer running since it goes into sleep mode after a few hours.
I woke up this morning and it was dead - I tried to turn it on - not lights, no fan, no sound, no nothing!
I checked the power cod, outlet, etc. all working fine -
Please help! What can I do to turn it back on?
I checked for loose wires inside, but nothing seems amiss (I am not sure what to look for)

Thank You

Hello topperking99...

If this is a desktop machine, my first thought would be a bad power supply.

Is this a laptop or a desktop?

Some of the reasons for a pc desktop to not start at all:

1- Motherboard dead
2- Processor dead
3- PSU (power Supply Unit) dead
