    My father's Dell won't turn on. They have tried different power cords and still no power. No lights turn on, nothing. It's like it's not plugged in. Any ideas?

    If you can swap in a temporary power supply, I'd start from there.

    Ok well I'm in NY and he is in Florida....any ideas that a computer dummy might be able to do? LOL I don't think they could do that, and I won't be there for a while. :)

    I wouldn't recommend anything to a "computer dummy" other than to take it into a shop.

    P.S. There are no dummies here :) , just stops along the way!
