Hey guys - I've never seen this happen to one of my computers so I am looking for thoughts.
I was away on business for 3 weeks so I turned my desktop computer off. I came home and turned it on and nothing happened. There is no noise, nothing.
I have unplugged the power cable and made sure the rocker switch is set to on.
When I push the power button I can see a "green light" on the mother board comes on but there is no noise. If I push the power button, and hold it, the green light on the board goes off.
Any idea what the problem is? Is it likely a dead power supply? Dead mother board?
As far as I know, it was not hit by lightning. I have several other things plugged in to the same power bar (surge protected) and they all work fine.
Since I see the green light, I am thinking that some minimal power must be getting to it but I don't know if it could be some residual power inside the computer that is just enough to turn on the light.
