computer will not power on.

Jump to solution

Hi, I have posted this problem  recently but the situation has changed and I am freaking out. In the past my computer was hard to start. I had two press the power button several times before it would start. The fan would come on briefly then stop then turn briefly a second time.I was advised to unplug the machine unplug the power from the motherboard, take out the battery, plug the power cord back in and see if the fan would turn. It did not. Now when I put everything back together and press the power button the fan will turn as long as I hold in the button but stops as soon as I let go off it. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Just did the paperclip test and the fan powered on.

What's the model?

My first suspicion would be the power supply, but that's just me.

Yuppers. It was the power supply. Took it to a local shop and they fixed her up in no time. 95 bucks. Not bad considering I got it back in bout an hour and its not like you can just go in to wallly world or best buy and pick one up. Thanks for you help!
