Both in the title and first sentence you say the computer has no power but then you say it turns on in the last sentence. Which is it?

If it turns on, what happens after that?

Fixing it requires identifying what broke.

Start it in Safe Mode. When it starts up, press F8 a few times and you should get some Startup Options. See if you can get into safe mode.
December 4, 2012 5:19:01 PM

well he can run it in safe mode. he shut down and then open his computer back up and he is able to run in safe mode thats it.
and what i mean by turn on i mean he can just open his computer in safe mode
December 4, 2012 5:21:15 PM

If your wondering what I was playing. I was playing Minecraft, If you want to play later... Go to: minecraft.net
December 4, 2012 5:22:48 PM

So when in safe mode, have you tried a system restore? Also, can you give more specifics on the computer itself?
December 4, 2012 5:23:17 PM

Were you playing minecraft on your dad's computer? BTW, I know what MC is. I have a public MC server running at my house.
December 4, 2012 5:25:54 PM

we have tried a system restore but it wont work and if it did work my game would be gone to everything on my game would be gone. even my youtube account. cause we downloaded that stuff on my dads computer and were talking about my dads computer.
December 4, 2012 5:26:53 PM

December 4, 2012 5:28:21 PM

And you have a public minecraft server? could i join and get OP cause ive always wanted OP on a server. OK now tell me IP and then we are getting back to the topic about my dads computer :pt1cable: 
December 4, 2012 5:31:40 PM

Get the computer started. Open a command prompt and type in sfc /scannow and then hit enter. See if that clears up anything.
December 4, 2012 5:32:03 PM

And no, I will not be posting my IP here...
December 4, 2012 5:34:47 PM

uh he cant even type that in when he types it in he hit enter and it says: You have to be logged in as a Adminastrator.
December 4, 2012 5:36:14 PM

December 4, 2012 5:47:21 PM

Patience is waning, but, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, and right-click on Command Prompt and select Run As Administrator. Then run sfc /scannow.
December 4, 2012 5:52:45 PM

it wont work. it said: Windows can not restart the repair resorce
December 4, 2012 5:53:57 PM

December 4, 2012 5:54:23 PM

I think this is one of those people that its better to just walk away from, hes not going to give you any helpful information that will allow you to help him.

Best solution

Sounds like something bad in there... You need to download and burn an anti-virus rescue disk, like the one AVG has, and do a boot scan of the hard drive. http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-rescue-cd

December 4, 2012 6:10:17 PM

Why would anyone else try to help you now? You already gave out best answer when it didn't really fix anything for you, and you have provided next to no useful information where anyone could even help you if they wanted to.
December 4, 2012 6:14:05 PM
