okay so i unplugged every electrical device for the night and when i plugged it back on this morning my pc didn't respond when i pushed the power button. motherboard leds are on and the power supply seems to work fine too. any ideas? this is a 10 year old shitbox btw.

You might be better off in /g/, anon.

Can you explain in more detail? Say you push the power button, what happens after that? Step by step.
>>
Is the power switch in the back of your pc, most likely near or on the power supply, turned off or set to 220v? Is your cable plugged into the wall/power supply/circuit breaker?
>>
>>50098
i thought /g/ was not for tech support. i press the button and literally nothing happens.
>>50100
it's all turned on and plugged in.
>>
dead mobo battery?
>>
>>50102
Okay so everything on the PC is working. Is the problem you not getting video on your monitor? or are you not getting a POST beep from your PC?
>>
>>50102
/g/ is full of pretentious faggots, they have a good heart though. Try using the /sqt/ thread there.

Did you at any point smell burnt plastic or smoke the last few days?

Double check your psu switch on the back of the case. If nothing happens when you hit the power button, either your power supply is fried or the wire connecting your power button to the board is kaputt. Start looking there, anon

>>50105
monitor was working fine and probably still does. there's no beep and no response from the fans either.
>>50109
now that you mention i might have heard a slight buzzing sound for a second when i plugged the electricity back on. i tested the power supply with another pc and that did turn on.
>>
>>50123
If you have another CMOS battery on hand i'd suggest trying what to replace that like >>50104
said. Also if you now how to reset the CMOS using jumpers i'd suggest doing that as well. If not i could try to explain it, but every mobo is different.
>>
>>50125
gonna check that when i get home. thanks for the help, man. i have no idea how to to that though.
>>
>>50129
The easy way to reset your CMOS is to take out the batter, start your computer, turn it off, and put it back in. However many mobos have protections against that. So you'll have to look on your mobo for a spot that says "CMOS Reset" or some aught like it and put a jumper on the pins, then follow the same step for the easy way. Just take off the jumper after you're done.
