I cannot turn my computer on
« on: January 03, 2008, 09:55:28 PM »
Hello! Belated happy new year to all. I hope you can help me with my problem. I have a desktop  computer and I cannot turn it on. What happens is that when I switch it on, the keyboard and monitor does have  power, the same with the mouse. But the problem is that the monitor is blank. I have checked he video card with other units and it's fine. The same with my optical drive and harddisk.  Can you please help me figure out the problem? Thanks!

        Try useing a differnt monitor, sounds like the one that your useing is dead.  Try connecting another pc to it but if it was working you should have a green led.
