    i just moved to a new place, and all of a sudden my computer won't turn on :mad:


    i'm going to try replacing my PSU, but i just wanted to see if there could possibly be any other problems that's causing this. i checked to see if everything was securely plugged in (both inside and outside of the computer), and it all checked out

    one of the onboard LEDs on the mobo lights up, if that gives any indication whether the PSU is bad or not


    i'm using an Antec 480w NeoPower btw. help computah :hs:

    Had this happen to my family's dell and it ended up being the motherboard
