I very recently had a 1-2 second power outage when i was rendering a video, and my old desktop Gateway turned off. I powered it back on and it showed the boot screen, but afterwards it just showed black (It was on). I tried unplugging it and plugging it back in and changing power outlets, no luck. Any help would be highly appreciated.

What sounds do you hear?? Can you observe the fan in the power supply??  Dose it turn, spin?  Maybe it just moves a bit and stops when power is applied.  The power supply is the first diagnostic point.  If no sound or motion, the power supply has faulted and not uncommon after an interruption event.

Thank you for your reply, but i believe that i have fixed it myself just after you replied, i just unplugged some USB devices and unplugged it once more, and it ran without the screen showing black.
