It’s a regular day, you sit down in front of your PC and you realize it won’t start.
Now, your first reaction might be to panic. Don’t dismay, not just yet! Sometimes your PC isn’t reacting at all when you press the power bottom or it’s turning on for a few seconds and then shutting down again.
There are all sorts of reasons why a computer won’t turn on. If you notice that your PC isn’t turning at all, no lights blinking, no fans running and nothing appearing on the screen, you might be experiencing a power supply issue -either internally or there’s no power coming to your computer. In this case, first thing you want to do is to try a different power source. Hence, plug your PC directly into a wall outlet you know is working or even try using a different power cable. If you are using a laptop, make sure your charger is plugged in properly and to the correct port and charge the battery for at least half-hour. Check the brightness is turned up, as well, as silly as it sounds.
If these steps fail, there might be a motherboard failure, or your computer may also have loose components inside. Furthermore, dust and water inside the PC might damage its delicate components preventing your PC to turn on. Occasionally, the computer will be turning on, but there’s a fault with the display or there are some unusual settings that are interfering with the boot sequence. It might also be the work of a particularly nasty piece of malware.
Please keep in mind that unless you have a good surge protection equipment, you should turn off your PC during a storm. Lightning carries a huge amount of electricity and if it makes it into your electronic equipment, it can do serious damages, like short circuits. For this reason and the ones listed above, we highly recommend to keep backups of all of your files and a regular computer check-up.
