Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
Comp was plugged into surge protector box. comp was in standby. Also plugged into surge box was guitar amps and pedals, etc. being used at the time when surge box started making high-pitched sound - alarm? So turned off everything plugged into surge box EXCEPT for comp. Then turned surge box off and back on and discovered comp will not power on. No LED light, nothing! (Yes, everything else plugged into the box still goes on).
Have tried hint from Dell of unplugging comp and holding power button to discharge flea power and then plugging in comp directly to wall outlet. Still won't power on. Hope you can help! Thanks
Try unplugging the power cord from the PC and the wall outlet or whatever it's plugged into for a couple of minutes and then reconnect both ends. I've seen this fix a lot of PC's that wouldn't power up after a power fail.

Gerry is probably correct. Try it without the surge box, if that does not do it change the Power Supply. You zapped it with a petty big surge with all the noise etc. Run your computer on a seperate connection. The power amps can feed back via the power line. causing all kinds of problems in the computer.

I would suggest replacing the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of
the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to
the jacks on the back of the control box.
