I tried to turn on the last Thursday my PC with the surprise that it didn't. It turns on for less than a second and inmediately turns off. The fans spin for the aforementioned amount of time also but turns off at the same time. I've read that maybe the problem is the PSU or the motherboard is dead. But power comes to the motherboard, the little green light turns on, so the board has power. I didn't have time to test thoroughtly all the components, and also I need to know the problem to solve it, I need the PC for some university work. Thanks for helping me, the details of my PC is on my profile and signature. Thanks again!.
I forgot to add that my multifunction printer MFP also broke out, it doesn't turn on again, when I press the start button, its an HP Photosmart 3310. When it receives power, it makes a strange noise at the right of the printer, behind the scanner. The wireless led also turns on interminently for a brief period and then turns off.
I have my pc, mfp, adsl modem, monitor and an old Sony sound system connected at the same outlet, but only the tower and mfp stopped working probably after the thunder.

It happened to you more than one time?, because of a lightning storm also?. Can be a bad power button?.
I will try this after trying clearing the CMOS. I don't have much time, I think this Friday I'll do it. But I have a doubt, when using the clip, I have to disconnect all the other things connected to the PSU? (fans, gpu, drives, etc), because the purpose of the test is just to know if the PSU works, right?.
