I have a Dell Dimension 4600 (P4 @ 2.4 GHZ) Desktop. Now, I have ben working on my computer for about 1-2 month without ever shutting is down at nights (it was always Locked) therefore the computer was always running and never completely off. Yesterday night I decided that it needed a little shut off once in a while so I shut it down.
This morning I wake up, go to the PC and press the power button and nothing happens, it stays dead as if no power went through it. When I opened the computer up, I noticed that there was a green light that was on the motherboard but if I remove the power cable from the outlet, the light would go off (due to no power). So I assume that the main power works but not the initial power when pressing the power button.
Can anybody suggest me anything on how to fix this???
Help would be greatly appreciated...
