Well, the general area around my workplace suffered a short power failure during a recent thunderstorm. Nothing in the building suffered any damage or had any problems..............except, of course, MY computer! The computer doesn't do anything when I try to power it up. No blinking lights, no nothin'. Do any of you have any suggestions on how I can trouble-shoot the problem? For example, how to tell if the power supply died? (If the motherboard, etc. took a hit, would the power supply be allowed to output power?). The computer is an old HP Pavilion with a 500Mz Celeron. Thanks!
