Okay then, let's get this party started. About 5 months ago, my computer (family computer) wouldn't turn on. [ It's an eMachines t2896 ] This happened after I spent a bit of time cleaning up around the computer area. Dusting it off, moving cables and such. I finished cleaning it up, and turned on the computer. The computer was running fine, no issues. I then nudged it with my foot to straighten it out (on carpet) and the monitor went black. The tower still had the blue light on showing it was receiving power and was turned on, and it suddenly started to get loud (the fan) as if it was processing something big. Nothing was happening except for this, and my only choice was to pull the plug. I pulled the plug, waited a bit, plugged it in and hit the button. Nothing. Checked wires, etc, hit the button again, nothing. So a couple days later, my mom had taken it to her job where the computer technician would take a look at it. He assumed it was the power supply. So, he went out and replaced the power supply in the back of the computer with a new one, and still nothing. Now, I am pretty good with computers (software-wise) but I know very little about the actual hardware inside that makes up a computer. I know about the mother board, RAM, harddrive, video/sound cards; stuff like that, but I'm not very savvy about how they work - what they plug into and such. Now that I look back on it, I think it had to do with the carpet, static electricity. Could that have done something possibly? (I've moved on, got a new computer, but now that I have spare time, I would like to try this one up and running again.) Oh, one more thing, when the tower is plugged in, a green light only visible when the case is opened inside the computer lights up on the motherboard. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
