    My computer wont turn on. I have to take out the power cable, wait untill there isnt any electricity left then plug it back in and hope it works. Usually the fans spin for 1 second and then nothing, if i try to press the on botton again nothing at all happens. On certain occasions it actually boots and goes into windows and works fine then unexpectandly powers off. Ive got a LCD display thing that tells me what the computer is doing during startup untill windows boots. But when the fans stop spinning it just says 'Pwr_off'. Please help.

    Hey there,

    I think my first thought would be the power supply in the computer is broken. I am sure quite a few people on here would agree with that. If you are fairly tech savvy then you will probably be able to switch a known working power supply from another computer into yours to test if that is the problem. If you are not then you could see if someone you know might be able to help you with it. Or take it to a computer shop to get it fixed by a professional.

    I hope it isnt that anything is broken they were very expensive parts, my power unity is the only useable one for my parts except from anothe which is 100 watt more but works on the exact same hardware so i will check with that one.
