IBM INTELLISTATION M PRO does not power up


Have you tried any troubleshooting? It is most likely the System board or power supply. You could take a known good power supply and swap it out to see if it will turn on, if not it's the system board.

Dell OptiPlex GX620 starts up then shuts down repeatedly


Try this: remove the DMOS battery and unplug the on/off switch plug. It's the one in the corner near the power supply. To be sure follow the cable from the front on/off switch board on back to this plug. Then plug the A/C cord in, if the system boots up fine, then replace the front panel power on/off swith board. Naturally you will not be able to power off the computer using the power switch (since we unplugged it), so you will have to just pull the plug. Hope this helps. Joe

Dell Dimension 5100 not powering up


I had a similar problem with my dell dim 5150 and after 3 days of intense research i found the problem. you see mine would not start either and all i had was the green motherboard light on and the yellow light on the power button blinking repeatedly, until i came a cross a post that said to check the USB slots, and so i did, turns out that after a very close look i noticed that one of the pins inside the USB slot were bent upwards and making contact with the metal hense not allowing the pc to boot. i used my wifes eyebrow plucking tool to straighten out the pin and wallah the pc boots up flawlessly now. so take a really close look at those USB slots and make sure all the pins are straight and not touching anything or each other. Good luck

Are you pressing all three at the same time. I believe that is what they are refeing too. Just keep pressing those three buttons, as the computer starts up.

No power supply to the tower


Be sure that the ATX or BTX power cable (the rectangular cable with 20 or 24 pins) is securely fit into the motherboard. Re-seat it if needed. Also, check the +12V 4-pin adapter (if exists) is seated, just like the 20/24 pin is. If that doesn't solve the problem, be sure that the PSU is switched on and is at 120V (USA) before plugging in the power cable. If that doesn't work, contact the computer manufacturer or the PSU manufacturer (depdending on what you purchased.)

Hope this help!

PCIE slot un able to detect Video Card


I have the same PC and the same problem. I have come to the conclusion that the PCIe sot is dead after about one year of use. What the heck, do they put time bombs in these stupid things? I have tried resetting CMOS, reloading the Nvidia drivers, other cards, disabling the onboard adapter, nothing works. Best Buy Geek squad spent three days running ****** memmory tests and virus scans but never got to the hardware. I made them give me my PC back after four days, waste of time and money. The worst thing about this problem is that finding a replacement motherboard besides the exact same board is very difficult due to it being micro BTX. Good luck. I am just using the onboard video and living with it.

Computer shuts down problem


When you take the cover off and start up, are all of the fans spinning? If the CPU fan doesn't spin, the system will shut down soon after starting to prevent over heating the CPU

Gateway GT4010 Problem


This problem is video chip related. I have done alot of research on this and found that everyone has the same problem in some form or another. Your best bet is to junk the pc and get a different one, since the motherboard in the pc and the replacements you can get are all prone to the same failure. The best home remedy I have found is a hair dryer on the video chipset as mentioned in one of the above "fixes". Seems to work for a while, not permanent. You may need to repeat if your system goes down again. Also, when your system powers up and your screen looks more green than usual or different than it used to, just apply more heat and pressure. On another note, if anyone has a replacement for this case, GT4010, from a different manufacturer, please let me know. Hope this helps.
