Computer won't start?

A common question is "I can't start my computer - it won't turn on at all - can you help?".


A follow up that we're often asked is whether data files will still be OK, and generally the answer to that is yes - if you don't want it fixed, we can easily get your files back.


Generally speaking, there are two things that might be wrong:

1) The PC's internal power supply (a transformer that distributes power to various internal components) has failed. If that's the case, we can replace it for you easily.


2) The PC's motherboard - the main printed cuircuit board - has failed. These can be replaced too, but it's more expensive than just changing the power supply.
