My friend gave me his computer to try and fix.
Think I am over my head on this one :thumbsup:
It is a emachine T2885. I pluged it in, hit the power button, and nothing. No lights, no sounds, it's dead. LOL
How would I check to see what it may be?
Power supply is my first thought, since it won't do anythng.

First...check all connections.

Did you hold the button in (I know that's not normal, but it won't hurt to try it)?

What is supposed to be wrong with the system, according to your friend?

You have a system, you could try momentarily switching your PSU to his system (takes all of 5 minutes).

You can remove the hard drive and attach it to your system as a secondary and check it out.

You can reseat the RAM and video card.

If there's no sign of life in the fans...I would guess PSU.
