Just go inside your tower after you unplug the main power cord from the back of your tower first then unplug the big main connector from *********** board very carefully there a clip in the center of it that you have to squeeze in order to get the plug to pull out of the main mother board ok then leave it unplug from the board go and plug the main power plug cord back into your power supply at the back of the tower now carefully go inside your computer without touching anything else and plug the big wide connector plug back the main mother board now press the Power button on in the front of your tower and it should boot if not play around with unplugin and plug it back in on the main mother board if still no bootup screen then you either have and onboard video problem or your bios chip is fries or it could be one of your memories sticks in the mother board not functioning properly but first try the plug deal first ok then your memory if still nothing then try a different video card and if that does not do it try unplugging your hard drive and see if that is whats cousing it if so then you need a hard drive bud and if thats not the problem then your bios chip or processor known as the CPU would be fried then ok but im giving you guides to walk through the Simplest things first the step by step way bud so thats it then you can figure it out couse it will light up again or perhaps sorry your kid was vacuuming and so on you can also try to take the power supply out the the power cord plugs into take that out and take the little screws out of it and then look inside of towards the back of the circuit panel where the power cord goes and you should see a fuse link inside now some can be removed and replaced with another 5amp fuse and some are soidered in place the ones that are able to pop out you can get a replacement at raidio shack or some electronic place ok bu the ones that don't come out well just do like this take a piece of chicken wire and twirl it around the fuse making sure both ends of the fuse is making contact then secure it and put the power supply back together again putting all the little screws back in place again put it back in place in to your tower and then plug the power cord back in to it and see if that lights you up in the front of the tower and see if that boots it up if so it great to go now this will last you a long time with out any problems but just make sure you have apower surge protector plugged into it as well and you wont need to worry about the power supply in your system or if you still worry them use 2 power surge protectors and that will do the trick have fun and enjoy and i hope that all my info to you has been helpful and great of helping you out bud well ps don't forget to say thanks
