The yellow light comes on inside but the computer won't come on neither does it beep?
First remove any power cables and batteries(if laptop) from your system and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Plug the power cable back in & attempt to boot.
If this does not solve your problem then you will need to remove all non-essentials from your system.
If laptop, this simply consist of battery, ram, optical drive & any other removable bays or devices. Unplug all cables except the power cable & attempt to boot.
If desktop, you will need to remove any cables plugged into your computer except keyboard, mouse, power, video, sound, & network cable. Open the case & remove any PCI cards, except video cards, unless you have on-board video, unplug the data & power cables going to the optical & hard drives. Now attempt to boot. If you have no luck you can remove your RAM sticks & try again. If you get an error beep warning you about no ram then you might have a bad ram stick. If none of the above works then you may have a bad power supply or motherboard. Power supplies are pretty easy to test with tester or use a spare.
