I came home from work 2 days ago to find my daughters PC wouldnt turn on. Tried checking the simple things, power cables, extension cables no joy. Decided to take the case of and noticed the little green light on the motherboard that is usually on was not on. (unless i used to imagine it?)
presumed the PSU was broken so went and got another for £30. Tried putting this in with no joy either? all the cable weher i the right place?
Now this is as far as my skills go... Disconnected the power cables and all others from the back of the PC and then took the internals out. graphics card, one memory card, harddrives and cds, floppy. When i had just the bare essentials plugged in i pressed the reset button whilst looking in the shell.. the cpu fan moved for a fraction of a second then nothing? no lights, no noises, pressing the power button did nothing...
At abit of a loose end what to do now? cant print of a system information sheet to take to shop? no sure how to swap a motherboard? any advise would be really appreciated.
