    The fuse is generally built into the PC's power supply; you can change out the supply for a new one, or if you savvy, unplug and replace any fuses in the power supply, and see if that is enough to fix things. The outlets are getting power, right? All the circuit breakers are in nominal ON mode?

I have a COMPAQ, Presario SR1055CL Desktop, that will not bootup


Hi....If the computer will not start and you hear no fans or other electrical sounds chances are the power supply has failed. If you had an electrical storm that caused the blackout and did not have a surge protector power strip it could be much worse. Check the power supply first. You can google for help in testing that supply. Good Luck Hank

Turn the monitor off.
Unplug it from the AC power.
Reconnect it, turn it on, and see if it returns to "normal".

My emachines EL 1200 desktop stopped working during bad storm


You can try to reset the computer by removing all power sources and letting it sit for a time. Then powering it back up and see what happens. That's called a hard reset.
I am guessing that the storm surge damaged your motherboard. The power supply is working or nothing would work. Try to hit the proper F key and get into the set up on the motherboard. A message should come up when you start up the computer. This is to see if your motherboard is working enough to open the set up. You can then tell it to reset to bois to factory settings.

If none of that will work, I suspect *********** board is bad and needs to be replaced.

I am sorry I don't have more positive information for you. But I hope that this will get you on the right track to solving your problem. Remember, this is only an educated guess. If you do find this helpful, please leave positive feedback for me.

Thank You,

Brian

Power failure


by plugging it directly into the wall... what was it plugged into before. and have you actually taken some other electrical device and plugged it in to make sure the wall socket is still live.
there is also a reset button on most power strips... it may have tripped.

Try those and let us know.

Computer power won't turn on


First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.

No power


Had the same problem after the electric went out due to a storm. When the electric came back on the computer wouldn't turn on. There was a light flashing on the Power Supply and on the mother board. I disconnected the large white Power connector from the motherboard, waited 15 seconds and plugged the connector back in, the light came on solid, press the on/off switch and the computer booted up and continued to work fine.

Dead Dell


It is likely the power supply has suffered damage, or has just plain failed. Dell did have problems with certain power supplies in models such as the GX270, probably others too.

Anyway, if you have a voltmeter, you can check for the presence of voltages. Modern computer power supplies have a standby and main sections. I'd guess the standby portion is dead, and if so, your computer won't turn on at all. Here is a site listing the pinout & voltage spec for a typical ATX power supply: http://pinouts.ru/Power/atxpower_pinout.shtml

Note the standby line- again, this voltage will be present anytime the computer is plugged in. The main section of the power supply comes on when the power button is pressed.

If you tech savvy, you could try repairing the power supply if not toasted severely. Otherwise, a standard universal replacement might fit the bill, or just call Dell for an exact unit.
