HI everyone,
I hope someone can help. I have a Premio PC running Windows XP home, with a 1.7ghz processer, 256 mb RAM,Radeon8500 grafics card. The unit was in storage for 2 years. Yesterday I rehooked up all of the componets and power supply and it automatically turn on. I copied my photos to CD and was going to install a quick restore to format the drive and start over. I think that it may have some virius's.

Now the problem, I adjusted the time that the startup screen show the option to go into set up, the restarted the machine. It shut off and now it sits. Pushing the power button does nothing. I have left it unplugged all day and plugged it back in and nothing.

Sorry for being so long. I would be grateful for any help. Thanks

If you are hitting the power button and it doesn't do anything isnt a good sign, could be psu or motherboard related, however reseating the components can sometimes work.

I opened the case and found the power wires from the push button switch unpluged. Reconnected and so far it is running.
