Why won't your computer start?

Question

One morning after using my computer the night before, I tried to start up my computer but it wont start. There is no power whatsoever getting into it. My friend changed a fuse in the plug to see if that helped and I think the power supply is ok. Please help. Thank you. Fiona from Ireland.

There could be a whole lot of problems but it's definitely a hardware problem if the power won't even come one well you already changed the fuse and tried that did you try changing the setting of the power supply by turning it back to the on/off setting because if it was a power surge it might jump off automatically I would also check to see if the power supply is connected firmly to the motherboard If the computer is connected through a surge protected outlet sometimes the circut breaker button has to be pressed sometimes in order to bring the power back through I hope i helped with this problem--Rober Outlaw
