Hello, I'm new to the forums. My question is I just bought a brand new gaming pc, the Acer Predator. Out of the box the thing will NOT turn on. No fans, no lights, not a thing. Acer told me to send it back and wait 2-3 weeks but I think something might of been unplugged during the transit to my house from UPS. If it was a faulty component wouldn't the thing at least flicker, turn on and off real quick, or make some kind of noise? What do others think? Send it back or have a friend check it out? Thanks in advance.

I think you should send it back but before you do, make sure there isn't another power switch at the back of the case on the power-supply next to the AC input that hasn't been turned on yet. Opening the case might void your warranty.

As I just suggested to you on the other forum, Return It.
