The one yellow light that indicates activity remains lit constantly, but the Power light doesn't come on ever. Similarly, my DVD-ROM and DVD-RW drives won't open. However, I can see and hear the fan running. I opened up the computer for a quick look, but didn't see or smell anything obviously wrong. I have not noticed anything wrong with my computer, although I have been leaving it on overnight every night for about a week. However, it is not custom-built and I have never experienced heat problems.
Does anyone have any idea what's going on? How do I fix it?
