    My computer won't turn on (not this one I am posting from a laptop) I have tried connecting and connecting all power sources made sure everything was on. The monitor which is plugged in is flashing green so it is definitely receiving power. I fear it may be the power supply or a hard drive failure but have no idea.

    I am worried about losing data as well. The irony is I had just purchased an external hard drive and was going to back up that computer in the next few days.

    any help would be appreciated

    what happens when you switch on - can you hear any beeps as the pc starts - or hear the FANs running at all ?

    unplug anything connected to the PC - apart from Monitor, Keyboard and mouse

    make and exact model of PC

    have you tried huggie54 suggestion - i would certainly check the power supply to the PC - not sure of the electrical supplies in canada - but check the "fuse"
    also is there a switch on the back of the PC that may accidently knocked OFF -
