Default come home and she was dead

Went to bed last night, computer was running fine....came home from work today and it was turned off (not incredibly rare but...) so i hit the power button and I get nothing. However the LED on the motherboard is lit up. Should I just swap out the power supply?

i was working one time...power spike...pc turned off and stayed off...wouldn't turn on when I hit the pow button

I reset it by hitting the switch on the back...psu on/off switch...try that

so....do you have another pow supply?
if you do, swap out and see...easiest step in troubleshooting...hopefully that'll be it

Off topic, but a question - What is the battery used for? on the mobo?

nope....only thing that happens is the led is on. I'm going to buy a new power supply today and swap it to see if it works. i'll be awful sad if it doesn't. thanks for all your help!

I have the exact same problem. Did just changing the PSU work for you?
