Was working on my pc this morning for about an hour. Literally turned it off and went to switch it back on 20 mins later and....nothing!! Changed power leads and no change. Opened case and the green light is still on the motherboard. Would this be a psu issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check for loose connections (pull out ALL cables...and re-insert) would be my first step...maby your hand touched something that might have moved something out of place...


...We all know something...but we will NEVER know everything :grinner:

 

Cryptlocker "Process" remover...will NOT delete Cryptolocker, only the processes...( a "safety precaution" I took for those who still want to "try" paying the ransom to get their files back. DON'T FORGET TO MONITOR YOUR TIME LEFT BEFORE PAYMENT! )

 

("KillCrypt" will automaticly open %appdatadir%...just guide this to Cryptolocker-Virus and double-click on it. Remember...if you "restart" your system, the processes will be back...use this only for emergencies if you want to create a quick document. While this processes is killed, your docs wont get infected, but WILL be encrypted (unusable) when you restart the PC/Laptop OR clicking on the Virus again!!!)

Hello ndonaldson,

 

After you press the power button, do you hear any beep sounds? If so, how many beeps do you hear?

 

If there are no beeps, do you see the fans start up. Do you hear the Hard drive spin up? 

 

John

Hi John,

Whenever I press the button nothing happens at all. No fans spin or no beeps :-(

did you pull out ALL the cables? Also, remove and reinsert your memory. If you have ANY additional adaptor (pci or whatever), remove and re-insert...You can also pull out your graphics card (if you have one) and use onboard as a test...Main thing is EVERYTHING must be re-seated...even your PSU power cables ( dont forget about the 4-pin one close to the cpu...)

I haven't tried reinserting anything yet. Will try when I get home. The machine wasn't even moved an inch when it was shut down. Could it be a case that something had shorted?

...unless you had some electricity "spike" or something, i doubt it...10 to 1 its a small problem :)

Once i had a case (still cant figure it out) where the guy had a similar problem than yours. All we did was pull out the Electricity (power) cord...and plugged it back in...and WALLA...everything worked....weird but true...

If by reseating everything does not work. I would next test the power supply. Here's a great tutorial for addressing this procedure.

Hi all, problem has been resolved. Changed power supply and all is working again, apart from the power button led. Nothing would happen when it was plugged into motherboard so possibly this shorted something? Anyway, machine is going like a trooper once again, thanks for all your help guys
