  1. Today my hydro company turned my power off for 1 minute to install a smart meter. After the power came back on my computer would not start. Absolutely no power at all. I had been using a power bar but other things on the same power bar were fine. I bought a new power supply and installed it and now I have power but just to the power supply and nothing else. When I first start it up everything lights up and the fan on my cpu and the extra fan in the case run for about 2 seconds. Then it all shuts down and the only thing running is the fan on the power supply. Anyone know what the problem might be? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    ...and the computer was running when the power was turned off? Any add-on cards installed like modem or USB device?
