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.
/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
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.
it worked, everything is back to normal, i just had to change the date. thanks a lot for the help anon!
