keyboard or mouse.
ok. so when i left yesterday to visit my b/f in a different city than mine for thanksgiving dinner the computer was fine and on. when i got back today the power was still on to the actual tower but everything else connected to it is receiving no power (except the monitor but that has a separate power source). so yea there's no power to the mouse (the one i am now using on my sister's netboook as i type this right now so no problems with that) the keyboard doesn't work (as far as i can tell cuz there are no lights showing i don't think there ever was i cant tell.) and when the computer boots up the monitor just flashes on and off and when i push power to the monitor it shows the samsung thing and then it goes blank and then the power light starts to flash on and off.
ok also. the little light that flashes when the hd starts working to load windows stays off. and under the power plug on the back of the tower there is a little green light that stays on even when the computer is off.
so to recap.nothing plugged into the tower works when it is turned off. no mouse, key-board or even the usb wifi key. so wtf is going on because i am being blamed for this and the last time i saw it it was working.
oh the computer is a HP Pavilion Media Center m8530f Desktop PC
it has an nvidia video card --> not sure which
os -> windows 7
gateway mouse and keyboard
if someone could give me some idea with wats going on i would be exceedingly grateful
oh you can reply here but could you also send me and email to firstname.lastname@example.org too.
one more thing. i don't know if this would be a contributing factor but my house has been under renovation for the last several months and there has been a lot of dust in the house and when i looked behind the computer today there was a lot of dust. either that or someone when on the computer when i was gone and is lying about it.
all help would be appreciated.
i will be checking back periodically. and also my email too.
