My computer is about 2 years old. I went to turn in on last week and I get nothing - I have tried different cords, outlets etc. I have the monitor, keyboard hooked up to an older model. Does this mean I need a power supply replaced??

If nothing comes on, no fans, lights, etc, the first place I would look would be the on/off switch on the back of the computer (not the voltage switch). You may have inadvertently turned it off shutting all power to the computer.

Next would be the switch on the front (button you press to power the computer) and next would be the power supply.

This happened to me a few weeks ago two and I had to replace my power supply. I would suggest bringing it to a computer shop... for 10-15 bucks they will put a new power supply in tempoarily to see if that is the problem if it is a new one, if you don't need a powerfull one, is only about 50 bucks...

I had the same problem. If you have it connected to a surge protector unplug it and reconnect it. See if that does anything. If not, it might be the power supply. Or it might be the motherboard.

My case was the motherboard...
