Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. Would prefer more information about your computer before i offer you some advice, but based on your description, it sounds like the power supply has broken down. Assuming this is the only problem, you would need to replace it with a new one, as a power supply is one of the few components which can't be repaired. First though, check that the power cable hasn't come loose, or that the fuse in it hasn't blown. The fuse in the power cable plug should be a 5 amp one, NOT 13. Ring your local Maplins store, and ask to speak to one of their technicians, who can help narrow down the problem for you, over the phone. Then ring your nearset computer repair shop, who will be able to advise you further. You'll have to take the main computer tower to the shop, and leave it with them for a few days. Don't be tempted to let a friend 'have a look at it for you', as he might make things worse.

1. Ask around to see if there was any thunder storms while you were away. If there was it might have blown your power supply, Is the computer power cord connected to a power bar? Or does it plug right into the wall.
2. If you can, unplug everything from the back, unscrew the side of the case, Do you smell anything funny?
3. If you have a car or a dog, the hair might have clogged the power supply fan and it overheated.
