Hi

Is this a laptop?

What is your operating system?

What was the particulate driver?

Where did you get the driver from? (be specific)

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds.

3. Replug and start.

Sir, it won't boot on safe mode either. Computer won't even make a sound as if there is no power supply but the power button light appears and disappears after a while that's all the computer does.

Looks like a power supply issue to which only a qualified technician can look into.

Sorry
