I shut down the computer but did not unplug it from the surge protector. <_< We were messing with the main breaker box in the house.
When i went to turn it back on nothing. Monitor work everything and else that is plugged in to the surge protector. Took the computer apart and opened and cleaned all dust out :thumbsup: Plugged it back in and nothing. There is a green light on the back just under the plug which is lit up (Green) as it was before I took it a part. Can't say I remember weather or not it was lit previously. Check on line and suggestions are the power supply may be bad. However I can't seam to find out if the power supply would be bad would the green light be on, which seams to be connected to the power supply box. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Paula :wacko:

Also the mouse light does not work, (Plugs into the key board) It is a Dell Inspiron Win 7

Thank you for your replay, Apparently it was a static shut down. I unplug everything but the monitor from the tower. The unplug the power cord to the tower from the wall. Pushed in the Power button for about 30 second. Then pluged the Power cord back in to the wall and pushed the Power button and WA LA it worked. Thanks again
Paula
