Your PC doesn’t take power directly from a wall outlet, but instead needs a power supply to convert normal electricity into a lower wattage. If the power supply on your PC stops working, the computer either will not power on or will shut itself off at random times. To test if your power supply is the issue, make sure that everything is plugged in, it’s entirely possible that a cord has just slipped out from the outlet while you’re working. If power is present to the monitor and other peripherals, yet there is no power to your computer, there is likely something wrong with your power supply the most obvious clue is that the system will do absolutely nothing when you hit the power button. If there is no sound and no monitor activity of any kind, the power supply has probably died. While this can also be caused by a faulty switch, it is usually the result of a burned-out power supply.

Laptop Keyboard Replacement
There are several reasons a laptop keyboard may stop working. Keyboards see a lot of use and the keys can wear out over time. The user may accidentally spill some liquid on the keyboard, which shorts out the wiring. The computer can freeze up, making it appear that the keyboard is no longer working, when it is really the computer that’s not working. If using a wireless keyboard, it may need new batteries. Finally, there may be a problem with the connection between the keyboard and the laptop.
