Default Brother claims computer turned off

I was at work just got home my brother claims while I was away my computer turned off (he was not using it) and he tried turning it back on but it wouldn't do anything. He then said he tried 20 minutes later because he heard my printer go on and it started. I'm wondering if I may have a bad power supply or if possibly since my printer turned on my power strip could have gone bad for a moment.

Maybe just beat it out of your brother?

It would be more fun...

lol yeah. Check if your motherboard is wet

Anways, check ur power supply dude. If it's not making any noises (like the fan on the PS), it's dead. Get it replaced if that is the case.

Your brother is probably just screwing with you. I say if you dont know what the problem is, it's probably your brother messing around.
