What causes zero response from the computer when powering up?
EDIT: Fixed! It was the PSU that was causing the problem.
I've had this problem for the last year or so each time after a power outage. The computer would refuse to turn on for a bit and I would have to unplug it for awhile and try again later. The "problem" is marked by zero activity from the computer. No fan whirl, no attempt to boot, and no spinning HD. The screen would also remain off.
Usually, after a few days it would work again and there would be no more issues in turning the computer off and on until the next power outage. I haven't been as fortunate this last outage. It's been almost a week and the computer has not turned on again. I've tried multiple outlets, rearranging the RAM, doing the PRAM reset, and trying the power off/power on intervals with every combination of holding and not holding the power button.
I have a feeling the power supply is faulty, but I'd like other opinions before I take the dive and spend the money on something that won't fix my problem.
Thanks for your help!
Is this a good question?
