Following the electrical storms last week, one of our office PC's (an AcerPower desktop) has stopped working. It's strange because when it's plugged in the fan turns, but when I hit the power switch it doesn't switch on.
Do any of you good folk have any ideas what it may be or how to fix it?
If LEDs light up on the keyboard, even for a moment when switching on, this usually means the power supply is ok. The only way to be certain is to swap components.
take the PSU to another computer real fast and if it does the same thing in that machine throw it in the trash.

DO NOT plug a suspect PSU into a working machine, you could damage your other PC.
If you cannot check the output voltages from the PSU, swap it out with a working one and see what happens.
