  1. The last couple days I am having trouble turning on my computer. I unplug it and replug it and I also flip the switch on and off on my power strip. Eventually it will come on. But today I just can't get it to come on. Everything else lights up. Please help me get this computer on. Thanks.

    Is your power strip working? Try plugging the computer directly into a wall outlet.

    It sounds like it could be a power supply problem. What are your system specs? (graphics card, motherboard, CPU)

    If you aren't sure, download CPU-Z. Run it, then go into the folder where you downloaded it, and open the file "cpuz.htm." Press ctrl+a, press ctrl+c, then go start-->run, type in "notepad", press ctrl+v, save the file to wherever you want, and attach it into this thread.

    Regards :)

    Power strip is working. I have tried plugging the computer directly into the wall socket. No difference. My computer will not turn on so I cannot download anything. When I push the power button the computer will not come on. Everything else is lit up. Monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, and my external hard drives. Just can't turn on the computer.
