  1. About a few days ago i was playing a game on my computer then it froze so i had to manually shut if down by unplugging it .

    And now it wont turn on at all , whenever i press the power button a green light just blinks and dies . I checked inside the computer and all there was inside was a little green light in the motherboard . No fan no nothing . I tried removing graphics card , hard drive and reconnecting everything , cleaned everything and it still wont boot .

    Im new to this forum by the way , so please tell me if im doing anything wrong :)

    sounds like your PSU died. Read the NO POST guides in the guides forum.
