Hi all.
My pc has stopped working. I am pretty good with fixing them, but this time I am just not sure what it is.
When you press the power button, it just blinks. The fans inside spin up for a second & then it's nothing. nada. zip.
I am thinking mobo or power supply. There is a remote possibility that it could be a power button issue, as this issue was sporadic, but is now permanent.
What does everybody think?

I had a similar thing on my laptop, it was the black box thing on the power lead, dead as! New one from fleabay and voila, works fine.

Just a thoughtI:

sounds very much like the psu, just fixed one before xmas, depending on the power of the psu you can get them for around £13 upwards

easy to change over
