How to fix computer that won't turn on after power surge? Answered
Recently we had some heavy rain and I had a few things blow out, including router, modem, desktop, and a few other things. But the question here is regarding the desktop that will not turn on after this storm and apparent power surge.
When I hit the power button, nothing happens. I bought a new power supply and it turns on again with only one problem. All the colors on my monitor display are very washed out and faded. I plugged the monitor into another working computer and it works fine so I know the problem isn't the monitor. The power supply unit that I purchased isn't exactly the same as the original since the original is a little old and hard to come by.
So my question is what can I do to get my computer working like it used to be? The operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium and it is a Dell Studio XPS desktop. What do I need to replace to get my display working properly? If anyone can help me answer this it is much appreciated.
