Can you give us some details, is it displaying any error messages, any lights on, any sounds (beeps, fans), something to start with.

    Starting with the basics:
    -Make sure the power cord is working by using a know good.
    -Plug the power cord from the computer directly into a tested wall socket (an easy way to make sure the socket works is to plug a light in it).
    -While looking at the power supply fan try turning it on again. Does the fan itself move at all?
    The remainder of the things to check will require opening the PC case, if you are not comfortable with or if you don?t have some basic tools this then you should consider taking the computer to a repair shop. If you are lets continue:
    -Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove any add in cards (except primary video card), unplug mice, remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. Restart, does anything change?
    -Verify the power switch is working correctly. Note that you will need a multi-meter to test the switch.
    -With the case open turn your computer on and listen closely for any sounds like hard drives or fans starting up.
    -Test the power supply or switch out with a know good one.
    -Try a keyboard you know works, I admit this is a desperation move but if you get this far we?re running out of things to try.

    If its none of the above I would suspect a damaged motherboard or possibly a processor. Since your PC is eight years+ old its probably not worth inventing any additional money or time in unless you have access to some older parts.

    If you have any other questions please let us know and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

MOST OF THE TIME.THE IGNITION KEYS OR IGNITION SWITCH KEY LOCK CYLINDER WORN WHERE THE BCM AND PCM DONT RECOGNIZE KEY OR SWITCH SIGNAL.SO THE BCM AND PCM WILL GO IN THEFT SECURITY MODE.THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE TO FIX.BECAUSE IF THE KEYS , IGNITION SWITCH AND LOCK CYLINDER AND BCM HAS TO REPLACED.THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPROGRAM USING DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT. NOT A HOME FIX.YOU WILL NEED TO GET FIX SOON AS POSSIBLE.BECAUSE FAULTY SECURITY THEFT CODE WILL SHUT DOWN VECHICLE FUEL SYSTEM WHILE DRIVING OR IT WILL GET TO A POINT WHERE CAR WONT START NO MORE.THIS FIX WILL COST ABOUT $600.00.

Took sides off to have a look.
Then turned on (but didn't touch!!) and was still making noise but no water. Lifted the float switch up and down and the water then started to come into machine. Drained machine and started it up again a few times to check wasn't a fluke and all seems well again!!! I was virtually on the point of giving in and buying new one as its 8 years old but hurray! not going to be that broke this month!! Husband will be pleased.

Either the child lock is on - press and hold quick-wash and anti-crease, at the same time for three seconds.

Or your machine need re-seting

Turn power button off (not at wall)
Select 90 degree wash
Press Start and Cancel button down at same time for 3 seconds and turn power button on whilst still holding buttons down - Start light will flash.
Leave power on.
Select any Spin position.
Press Start and Cancel button at same time again for 3 seconds - other buttons may start to flash - if they do, press Start and Cancel button together again for 3 seconds.
Machine should be re-set ready for use.
Good luck!
