Went to turn on my 5 year old Packard Bell desktop PC this morning and it would not power on. After checking the cables I unplugged and replugged in at the mains and the machine powered on as normal. However the fact this has happened concerns me. Could this be a sign of trouble with the power supply or some other power related hardware problem? I am sure the power cable was secure at both ends when the problem occured.


Can anyone offer any dvice as to what might have caused the problem and if it could be serious?

Well...if it's a one-time event...those happen all the time (IMO) when one is using a device with electrical and mechanical parts and relies on the ability to properly read coded data which may not have been perfectly written.


If it happens again or multiple times...that would be my time to focus on it and expend a few brain cells on what/why.
