Posted by geodog on Sep. 21 2009,06:17I bought a Fanless Mini-ITX BareBones Computer a couple years ago, and it has done yeoman service as a silent server in my guest bedroom / home office. However, I went away for vacation a couple weeks ago, and turned it and everything else off, and turned off the power strip.
When I came back from vacation, I turned the power strip back on, and tried to power up the Fanless Mini-ITX. No luck. The LED on the external power brick comes on yellow, but the computer power on light doesn't come on, and it doesn't start booting.
I'm not very electronically savvy. I would be grateful for some help on how to diagnose the problem, and if it turns out to be the internal power supply, as I suspect, how to replace it (and what with)
I don't see any mention of warranty on the DSL hardware page, and I don't know what my service options are, if any, but I live in the Bay Area and could drop the computer off in Foster City if need be.
Thanks in advance,

anyway, your itx machine could well have suffered a simple psu failiure, get a local electrician or handyman to test the voltage coming out of the power brick. new ones on ebay are around $20
