But you might want to post this issue in our Hardware forum to get better help.
To check if it's virus, you need access to the drive or able to boot to check for viruses in bios or drive.
Overnight my previously functioning computer (spec below) completely failed to start. Completely as in nothing happens when I press the power on button. I've done the obvious stuff with power supply checks but the power appears to be OK. The PSU operating light is on and the motherboard's little green light is on so there is power to the board. It isn't case button failure as I have tried starting it by using a screwdriver over the system power pins on the motherboard's panel.
I know nothing about viruses really & was pondering that only a nasty infection of the BIOS could actually prevent the machine from powering up at all. Is that either possible or likely or should I move to another Forum? Thanks, L.
