Depending on how long the power was off, your desktop power supply circuit capacitors may have fully discharged during the power outage. This will effect how fast your computer will turn on when you press the power button. Turning off the power by pulling the cord, or a power outage while the computer was on will usually result in a message that Windows was not shut down down properly when you try to restart it. Also make sure your computer isn't plugged into a 'switched' receptacle that's wired to turn on a table lamp etc from a wall switch. It's usually the bottom half of the receptacle that's switched while the top plug is always 'hot' or powered and unswitched in a wall switch controlled recepacle situatation.

Not powering on after power outage


Hello,

Sometimes after a power outage, some power supplies can take a hit but will not provide the needed voltage to operate your pc. In this case you should replace the power supply. For future protection, connect your pc to a power strip or power source with surge protection. This will range in price from $7 to hundreds depending on how much you need to protect and your budget.

Good Luck

Won't come on after power outage


Hi,
Sometimes you have to unplug the monitor from the power supply and wait at least 30 seconds before plugging back in, and make sure you don't need to press the reset button on the power strip.
