Hello there people that are more knologable with computers,

Ive got a dell computer and its basicly a desktop consisting of laptop parts, its not getting power and my usual computers PSU just got fried and i need to get a school project done, i think i just need a quik fix for the power cord on the computer because the plug that goes into the computer itself usually has a blue light that tells if its plugged in, an easy fix would really be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Time to borrow a friends' laptop?  Go to the school library ( or any library and borrow a computer ) ?  When you say its a dell consisting of laptop parts..... what laptop parts ?  I am afraid we just don't have enough information to go on here to help you put your frankenstien pc together.  My frist guess though would be that the power supply is not working if you do not get a ' light ' on your motherboard that your expecting.  Possible that the switch is bad on the computer.  Possible that the mainboard is dead?  First thing to do is to know that your power supply is good.  Can you test it on another computer or with a multimeter?  I suspect that by the time you figure out what is wrong it would have been faster to go to the library and finish your project.

Check the power rating (65w 90w or 120w) on the adapter and get one with the same connector from your local Walmart Target Radioshack etc.

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
