Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Why won't my computer turn on?

The outlet is working, it's plugged in, and the power supply works

There's no scorch marks inside

I'm thinking somethings just messed up with the switch on the front, so I'm trying to figure out how to open the front panel. The case is a Cooler Master Centurion 5

    Check the connection to the On/Off switch, check to make sure the PSU is actually connected to the MOBO. I guess it's also possible your cable could be bad. When did this start? Is it a new pc that has never turned on or is it one you had that just stopped turning on?

    I've had it for about 4 years. This just happened when I got back from class. It was working just fine this morning

    The everything on the MOBO is connected correctly

    I'm trying to check the connection to the on/ff switch, but I don't know how to get to where that connection is. I'm have no idea how to access that assembly

    Looks like you might have to remove a drive/drivebay to access it from the inside of the case. When is the last time you blew out the dust inside? You might try that too.

    Sometimes that's all it takes.
