I have a Dell Inspiron PC that is about 3 years old with windows 7, recently it will not recognize any hardware at all, I cannot even get the monitor to turn on. Does anyone have an idea of what is wrong as my pc does not recognize any hardware period.

What happens when you press the power buttons on the monitor and PC? If there is no power light on either, are they plugged into a power strip or surge suppressor? If so is it plugged in and turned on, and does it have a power light? If no, try plugging a lamp or something you know works into the same wall outlet. If that doesn't work, try another outlet.

These might seem like silly questions, but my whole home entertainment center went out one day after the housekeeper bumped the power strip while dusting.
