  1. Well i wake up this morning and my pc was off. I just happen to leave my pc on last night. I go to turn it on wont turn on. No fans are coming on. Nothing. i make sure outlet is working. It is. Could it be that the PSU went up?

    Hi untitled23

    Yea sounds like your PSU has quit. Try plugging the computer into another wall socket and see if it comes on. Did you ever get a burning type of smell from the back of the tower? Also, if you have one, try another power cable - this could also be the problem. PSUs have a tendency to fail often unfortunately.
