Hi :thumbsup:.

<<...so i inplugged the computer i hovered around it...>>

You need to be more explicit, please. Why did you unplug the system? What did you do after unplugging it?

System manufacturer and model?

I read through your pots till I found a reference to your owning a laptop which you seldom use, and a desktop. For the moment I'm going to assume that you are referring to the desktop.

When you unplugged it, how did you do this? Did you unplug it from the wall, or from the back of the computer?
If you unplugged the computer from the rear of the case you may have accidentally turned of the power switch on the power supply where the power cord plugs in. Make sure that it is in the ON position. Also look to see if the voltage is still set at 230V.

You mentioned that you "hovered" around it, I'm guessing that you used a vacuum cleaner to clean the inside of the case? Did you keep the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner from touching any of the components inside the case?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
