Hey peeps.


So ma computer wont turn on.


I opened it up and gave the fan abit of a clean and removed the ram to get some dust off of the motherboard.

Put it back together.

Pushed the button, Nothing.

Nothing at all.

checked the power cable and its working.
Checked if everything was plugged into the motherboard etc just incase i had knocked something out, everything is plugged in fine.


Sooo anyone wanna help?


Sucks bad cause i dont even own the computer, its rented.

try flicking the switch on your power supply, sometimes when my comp gets a surge i have to turn the power supply off and on to get it started again. honestly you could have a number of problems, have any more details?

Maybe you were dreaming.

Your computer seems to be turning on perfectly fine to me, considering you posted this thread from a computer.

Is it possible to scan your computer whilst in Safe Mode?

If so, try that.

Don't forget to sniff you motherboard, you may find a burnt out circuit or component

Check for burns, get rid of any dust, check all the leads etc.
Then just look up online for any other ideas.

lol wut?
The computer does not turn on. at all.


And ill sniff away.

Yeah, whatever; this is where more details would suffice.

So what? You press the button, and nothing happens AT ALL?
By "turn on" as such, do you mean load fully, or actually start to boot?

Probably the latter, and if so, I have no idea.

He's probably blown the power supply.

My mate did that before after telling me how awesome his computer was. He turned it on and the was a shallow pop and it went off, never came back on HAHA!

Oh, and check that it's turned on at the wall/power board.

...is it plugged in and turned on at the wall?

Dragonforce? I don't even know what that is. Isn't it that Japanese card game "Dragon Force Z"?

power supply, either replace it or flick the "off" switch if it has one (the newer ones tend to have it)
