    With so little info to go on, it isn`t easy to tell you what`s wrong.

    What are the system specs? When you say it doesn`t turn on, what happens when you press the power switch?

    Do any of the lights come on? Can you hear any fans spinning?

    If nothing happens at all when you press the power switch, have you checked/changed the fuse in the power cable plug?

    Regards Howard :cool:

    Only the UK and Ireland have these godforsaken, ugly, outdated, oversized powerplugs with fuses in them.
    The rest of the world enjoys more pleasant looking plugs, but all without fuses!
    Check that the powercord is properly plugged into the back of the computer.
    Try a different cord and a different outlet.
    If you are technical, there is also a fuse inside the Powersupply (but this is strictly for experts only! Danger, High Voltage inside!).
