Hello

First verify the electrical outlet is working by plugging a lamp or something else in.If your using a power strip be sure the little fuse has not popped out or take the power strip out of the line.

Next verify the power cord for the pc is getting power through it,using a vollt meter plug in the line and measure voltage at other end.

last,move rocker switch on the back top of pc to 120 volt position.If none of the above work you will need to open up the case a see if any thing became loose or disconnected.Possible your on off switch is bad on the pc.

    usually you can check the wires are connected for the button.Also if you are good with electric you can jump the button out and see if it starts.Im not sure you can get just a button,you may need to get a new case.Check out www.newegg.com

Automatically retarting when I shut down computer


2000 Is Windows 2000. Why did you put that disk in? Did you start loading Windows 2000 or XP Pro, XP-Home?

It sounds like your switch is wired to the reset jumper on the motherboard or you are hitting reset.

Tell me what the computer screen has on it before it shuts down please.
I will wait on you answer. Do not rate until we are done.
