This sounds like a power supply went bad. Did you either have a power surge or did someone shut down the computer by pulling out the plug?

Nothing happens when push start button. power cord etc good ??? is this a power unit failure?


make sure the outlet is recieving power

unplug the tower from the outlet & then replug it in & see what happens

make sure all cords are plugged in correctly in the back of the tower

then if nothing happens after you push the start button, power supply & cord could be bad

the same thing happened to my daughter's pc & had to replace power supply & shorted out the motherboard

Computer seems totally dead


If the power cord is firmly plugged in - both ends, remove the battery. Does it turn on now? If so, replace battery.

First place your recovery disk in the cd drive. Then hold down the power on/off button for 15 seconds. The machine will power down. Then restart normally and reinstall from the disk.
