hi, i have a problem and was wondering if anyone could help. i have norton installed on my desktop and it found a virus it couldnt remove and told me how to do it manually. after following some of the instructions i had to leave for work and by the time i got back the screen had frozen on a blue windows page. i turned the computer off manualy and since then it will not turn back on at all. ive checked fuses etc but to no avail. any ideas?

What exactly did the blue screen say?

When you turn the power back on, have you made sure the main power switch (usually on the back) is in the on position?

The switch with the red 230 is not the power switch! Do not set it to 230V unless you are in a place that has 230 Volt electricity. If you do you will fry the power supply and probably everything else inside.

In order to diagnose the problem we need more information than you had a blue screen that said "something to do with Windows". You obviously do not have power to the computer which can be caused by numerous things from the switch being off on the surge supressor (if you have one), to a dead electric outlet, to a bad power switch on the computer or power supply, to a bad power cord, to a bad power suply in the computer, to a bad motherboard or processor.
