my computer won't turn on
« on: February 23, 2007, 04:56:13 PM »
My computer was working until I moved, when a dent on the front left side appeared. At first I could get the comp to turn on but nothing would happen, no startup sequence at all, just a black screen. Now the power won't even come on. Hopefully someone will have a suggestion on how to fix this, other than hiring a diagnostics guy because that's the obvious ultimatum.

    A dent appeared, or it was damaged? That sounds like the case, but you, or someone else will just have to open it and have a look inside to see what the problems are.
    Please post as much information about your computer, operating system, and problem as possible, what happened prior to problems, etc. Too much info is OK, too little is pointless! Don't just say "My computer doesn't work. What's wrong?"

    I've opened it up and reset the bios and all that jazz but I haven't been able to determine what is causing the problem.

    Are you sure all of the cables are connected properly?  Nothing's cracked?

    It sounds like the PSU's malfunctioning, but it seems a little odd since the dent is towards the front.
