can someone come round and fix my pc please?
failing that, can they help diagnose problem...
when pressing the power button the pc often doesn't come on!
The leds behind the power button and the hard drive briefly flash then go out and pc fails to switch on.
subsequent button presses give nothing.
only way i have found to switch it on is by flicking the hardpower switch on the back to off position - after 5-10 secs the power button will flash
after a little wait i flick switch on again then wait some more (dramatic pause) then try the power button again.
sometimes it works first time but today it took me half and hour of doing this to get the machine on.
i have done a comprehensive wiggle of all external cables and its still as hit and miss as ever.
i initially thought it was using a remote control socket on the power block but happened again when completely disconnected from it.
pc is getting on now - think its 6 year old :D but if its a simple thing id rather try and fix than bin it.
