Lightening strike thru a APC Surge Protector. Monitor and printer on same protector unaffected. Power going to the computer (Inspiron 3250) but on/off button "dead" except for green light on back. Help!
* Disconnect the power cable from the Inspiron 3250 and the APC Surge Protector
* Test the Inspiron 3250 power cable on the monitor. If the monitor gets power, the cable is fine
* Connect the Inspiron 3250 power cable directly into a wall outlet * Connect the power cable to the Inspiron 3250 * Press and hold in the Diagnostic button on the rear power supply * If the green LED does NOT appear, the power supply is defective * If the green LED appears, the power supply is fine * Try to power the Inspiron 3250 on
