Got up one morning computer was off and wouldn't come back on..Took it to Best Buy Geeks and they clicked the start button and it came right on several times..They suggested maybe I needed another power surge protector, (Bought 1), went home connected everything and NOTHING..Opened computer bypassed motherboard to test Power supply (300 Watt), It came right on..Moved computer to every socket in house, NOTHING..Took it back to Best Buy they clicked start and it came back on everything started up just fine....I bring it back home plug it in and NOTHING..Took it next door used their plug and nothing..Took it BACK to Best Buy Geeks, they clicked the start button and I'll be damn if it didn't come back on again..They checked my power supply(Perfect), they even by passed the start button and it still came on..They said everything was fine, good computer, working great..SO once again I bring it home plugged it in, just computer, nothing else and once again Nothing..So I checked my plug in sockets, voltage 119.0 and 0 ground. I tried to bypass the start button and still Nothing..The guy at Best Buy said maybe I should move there since my computer only seems to start there..LOL I was so pissed I went and bought another new cable cord..Once again nothing..My old computer that I'm on now is in the same plug I would use for my good computer..I've tried using the power surge as a connection, Nothing, but will work on this computer I'm on now..I've tried plugging it directly into the main wall socket and NOTHING.....No one seems to know why it starts at Best Buy but not at my home..
I even talked to Gateway about this too, they don't have an answer either....Any suggestions????
