Computer won't turn on
The store I work at has a computer they use for company e-mails and whatnot.
When I went in yesterday one of the managers told me it wasn't turning on and he though the PSU was dead.
They already ordered a new one, and I'll probably have first dibs on it to cannibalize, but wanted some opinions.
All the connections are secure, but when you push the power button it doesn't turn on.
I sniffed the PSU and it doesn't have that electrical short kind of smell.
But there is a really high pitch tone coming from the PSU (or at least I believe from the PSU), almost too high to hear.
I'm going to cannibalize it anyway, just trying to figure out if it is the PSU or not.
If I bring in a spare PSU then I can DBAN the HDD and take it too, otherwise they will destroy it (sensitive info).
Would rather get it with the HDD as that is the most useful component to me.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
