Nothing Happens when i turn on my computer... What do i do? What is a possible cause? What is a remedy?

This question was answered on November 8, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

When you say nothing happens, what do you mean?

There could be a number of causes for this and a very simple solution, but before we assume the worst please check for the following, since we need to know what’s happening exactly when you power up.

1 Verify that the monitor is plugged in, turned on, and adjusted correctly.

2 Listen for a spinning drive or fan and look for lights on the front panel of the PC case to verify the system has power

3 Check power outlets, on/off switches, cable connections and fuses.

Get back to us with your response.

Thank you and Good Luck!
