Stepfatha's PC is goosed

Recommended Posts

Basically it seems like there is no power coming from any of the usb ports or the monitor connection etc. The mouse and keyboard isn't powering up and the monitor just keeps going into rest mode.

 

When I looked at his mouse connection he's bent all the pins trying to ram it back in after somehow pulling it out (dodgy blinkers?). The tower powers up but the panel on the back where everything plugs in seems to have fused???????, same with the usb ports on the front of the tower

 

 

TIA people

more likely to be a dead motherboard. If he has managed to get 2 of the pins to fuse together or even plugging the mouse in when its powered up can do this. Do you get any beeps when turning the machine on or does it just power up with nothing else (fans whirring, hard disks spinning up but nowt else?)

If it is the motherboard, its a major pain in the tits to diagnose.

Try switching it on with everthing except the monitor disconnected and post back here what happens.
