Here's a few things which may get a "dead" computer working again: Unplug the power cord from the back of the computer. Wait 30 seconds. Plug it back in. In some cases, this can actually get your computer working again. If that doesn't work, try swapping the power cord from your monitor. If your monitor no longer powers up but your computer does, you need a power cord. For more advanced users, the next thing to try might be to re-seat your RAM. If you have more than one RAM chip, you might try running it with just one of them at a time. If the lights come on and you can hear the hard drive spinning but you get nothing on your monitor, check the power cord going to your monitor by swapping it with the computer power cord to see if that makes a difference. Check that the monitor cord is plugged securely into the back of the computer. For more advanced users, next you might try to re-seat the video card. First, unplug the monitor from the computer. Then, remove the video card and re-install it, making sure that it's firmly seated. If you need further assistance, you know who to call!
