    So, does the computer tower stay on? like fans running, etc?

    Or does the tower turn off after a few seconds?

    Any beeping or anything?

    Also check on the back of the power supply. Some of them have a switch for 110 or 220 volts, if it's set to 220 it will behave like this.

    After you press the power button to turn it on, does the CD-ROM drive still open and close?

    Most common causes are faulty power supply or faulty motherboard.

    Yeah the tower stays on all fans running and the CD-ROM drive still opens and close.

    Most computers make a quick beep when they first turn on. Do you recall if your computer did when it was working? Does it do that now, when you turn it on?

    Did you do anything to "break" it? Or did it just stop working one day out of the blue?

    I don't think I heard a beep and it just stopped working out of the blue this morning when I turned it on.

    Could be a few things. Diagnosing this further requires opening the case, and probably other parts to swap in and out. Doing that on your own will void your warranty, if you have one.

    We can have a tech look at it tomorrow if you'd like. Just PM me.
