The computer that plays music won’t boot, I press the button but absolutely nothing happens. I don’t really want to take it to the covid breath tech guy around here if I can help it because, he’ll give me disease and charge me fifty quid for the pleasure. The last time it did this I took it to him and he told me “an update got stuck.” Dunno if bullshit or not but I have the same symptoms. Can anyone help? I want tunes.
Ehh, what kind of computer is it?
Have you tried holding the button down for a good while (like > 10 seconds) to see if anything happens?
@AmDismal can tell you probably, he built it. I’ll try the button thing.
I can’t be bothered with that shit.
That explains a lot.
I thought you’d be along…
There was a Windows Update recently that apparently fucked some shit up. Probably that. Was it Win 7 or 10?
If it doesn’t power up and is just dead, it’s gonna be the power supply or motherboard.
I think this. The cable is fine, have checked it. Its kinda old now, is it junk?
If Adam built it, it always was.
It might be possible to check the power supply. If that’s the problem it’s fairly easy to swap it out. Changing a mobo in Windows is a ball ache.
It’s not too bad with W10. I did it last year.
Hmmm… It might be possible if you knew what you were doing!
Is it a small form factor? I can’t remember! The mobo might be integral and hard to change.
Have you checked the fuse?

Is there a fuse in the unit?
