Question about Computers & Internet
Lets start with the basics. check it again if you already did.
Check the power cords and be sure they arent bad by swaping it with your monitor and testing power.
Make sure the power switch on the power suply in back is turned on. If it has a switch,some dont.
Make sure the power button in front isnt just bad.
Now, if you want, go to any computer store and ask for a power suply tester. They usually run about $13.
It has several testers for the mother board and other devices, they are usually rectangular and have LEDs that light up indicating it has power,
Test the power suply itself directly followed by the stystem board.
You will probably want to go to a real computer store, not best buy or some other idiot retailer, but a ma and pop, small bussiness store that has actual people who know what your talking about when you ask for POWER SUPLY Tester.
If they have one, get it, Ask if they can explain how to use it before you buy it.
Try this out and get back to me if no progress is made.

If the external hard drive is hook up to the main drive you might have to disconnect the exteranl hard drive and try another way to hook them up together . you did something wrong when you installed the externall drive. try it . and see if the original hard drive boots up. if this works you will have to change the boot sequence to use the external drive.
