Question about Computers & Internet

Main power switch does not work. Gateway Model 300S Desktop. I turned it off due to a lightning storm in the area and when I went to restart it, the unit will not start. There does not appear to be power as the light in the on/off switch does not light and the fans, etc., do not start up. There is no attempt to try to boot up. It's just dead. Could it be the on/off switch or power supply? It was working fine until I shut it down.

Your reasoning about the switch mode power supply being damaged is probably right.
Bear in mind that this power supply may not be the only thing that may be damaged in your computer.
You won't know for sure until you borrow a power supply and install it into your computer to see if it will work again.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

Leave the TV off and unplugged for 24 hours then try it. If it still doesnt work you may need to consult an engineer. The TVs power supply board may have blown due to power surge/spike. I recommend getting a surge protector to avoid this happening in future.
