If you look at the board with the ram and processor at the top there's 2 rows x 10 pins on the bottom right edge. Reading from left to right the power switch connects to pins 6 and 7 on the bottom row. You might be able to see on this picture.

My ASUS P4T533-C won't turn on

This is really a common problem with computers these days. It may be caused by a number of reasons like a faulty charging system, faulty battery or anything burned out on the computer's system board. But in this scenario, i would suggest the following
1. Remove the battery and connect the laptop with the AC adapter only and see if it will respond.
2. Remove the AC and re-connect the battery and try to turn it on
3. If the above two do not work, then consider changing the AC adapter for your laptop. You can try to use a different AC adapter that has the same rating as your laptop's. The problem might be with the Charger.
4. But if all this does'nt work, consider getting a Computer Technician who can open up your computer and check the circuit board, there might be a problem with one of the chips

Whats wrong please help


Firstly, do you hear any beep sounds when turning it on? If you hear no beep sounds this may indicate faulty RAM memory. Try removing the memory and cleaning the connecting points with anti-static liquid or surgical alcohol. This often cures this kind of fault. If this brings no luck, replace the RAM with one which you know is working and try turning it on again.

Let me know if this solves your problem or not.
Best wishes,

I have disconnected all th ewire from my motherboard and i have installed all wire but unable to connect pw button,reset button,HDD led wire and anothed LED wire please tell me how can i install them in...

Locate the case connector pins on your motherboard. This will be a bank of two rows with 10-12 pins in each row. Each pin will be about 1 cm in length.2 Locate the power lead behind the power button on your computer case. The lead will consist of two thin wires, usually white and black, held together by a small plastic cap.3 Examine the underside of the power lead for an arrow or dot. If one is present, the marking signifies the first pin. This must correspond with the first pin on the motherboard, which will also be indicated by an arrow, dot, or number. If no markings are present, the lead can be installed in either orientation.4 Place the lead over the power pins within the pin bank. The correct pins will be indicated by a diagram on the motherboard, or by a picture in your motherboard's instruction manual.5 Connect the power cable to the back of your computer, and turn the computer on.

    Computer was working its a alienware computer with p4t533-c motherboard now it comes on but when you power it on theres usual a beep then it loads but now it wont beep at all and dnt load nothing not even...

    toddzr2 - whenever I have a problem like this, you need to unplug all your peripherals, i.e. take out your video card, unplug your hard drive, CD/DVD, etc. Power up, you should get some beeping b/c the video card is out. Power down, reinsert your video card, power back up. See if you can get to your BIOS screen. It's possible that something may have shorted out, i.e. video card, or other peripheral. Don't be afraid to remove the memory as well but make sure you're touching the case to keep yourself grounded and minimize any static discharges.

    My motherboard is getting power from a 450w smps coz the board LED gets on when I switch on the ups. But pressing the power button on the cabinet does not switch on the system. Please help!!!!

    From your diagnoses you may have a bad Power On switch, or a bad Power Supply.


    An ATX power on switch is connected to the motherboard's Front Panel header.
    From there the circuit is continued through the ATX main power cable, and into the Power Supply.

    The Power On switch connects the Soft Power On wire, to Ground.
    (The Soft Power On wire is abbreviated as PS_ON. The wire is Green)

    If the Power On switch is bad the Power Supply will not turn on.

    A bad Power Supply will have a weak voltage power rail, (Or more than one)
    Enough power to light LED lights, and perhaps spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.
    No Processor operating, no computer.

    1) If all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

    2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

    3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.
    (Older Intel Pentium III's, and comparative AMD processors used less than 51 Watts)

    You may have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough to spin fans, or turn the Processor on.

    There is a simple test to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
    Bypass the Power On switch.

    A jumper wire is used to temporarily connect the Soft Power On wire to ANY Ground wire.
    The connection is made at the Back of the ATX main power cable's connector, with the ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and computer plugged into power.

    1) The Asus M2N-MX (And SE version) motherboard uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

    This is one example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

    Looking at the photo to the far right, shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard.
    This is the position for the test.
    (Computer also plugged into power)

    The BACK of the connector is where the wires go into the connector.
    The jumper wire is used on the Back side of the connector.

    One end of the jumper wire goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
    (Soft Power On wire)
    The other end of the jumper wire goes down into ANY socket hole with a Black wire in it.
    ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

    The jumper wire goes down into the socket hole RIGHT NEXT TO the existing wire.
    The jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole far enough to touch a metal terminal.

    At the end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable's connector, is a metal terminal.
    The metal terminal is pretty far down in the socket hole.

    The preferred jumper wire used is a paper clip.
    The paper clip's diameter is small enough, to go right next to the existing wire in the socket hole, and touch the metal terminal.

    The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
    The 'legs' of the U-shape go down into the two socket holes.
    The middle is wrapped with a few wraps of black plastic electrical tape.
    The taped area is for your finger, and thumb to hold onto.

    The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
    Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
    There may be a small spark when you make the connection, advising you in advance.

    The connection made is no longer than 2 seconds.
    (The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch)

    Computer comes on, (Power Supply actually) you know you have a bad Power On switch.
    Computer does Not come on, you know you have a bad Power Supply.

    For additional questions please post in a Comment.

    I don't know how to plug in the wires for the ASUS a8n sli deluxe motherboard

    Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...)

    You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:

    1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply)
    2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply)
    3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors.
    3) hard drives (SATA or IDE)
    4) USB front panel ports
    5) Audio front panel ports
    6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).

    Extra wire /fan 3pin hole 1wire where to plug in X 2 fans

    If your cpu fan has a 4 pin connector & your mb has a 3 pin you can still use it. Just leave one pin exposed. The extra pin is for a speed control sensor that not all mb's support. The chassis fan has a different connector on the board marked "cha fan". This one is a 3 pin connector. Most of the asus boards have 1 of these. If you wish to run more than one you can either buy a "y" adapter that allows you to connect 2 fans to 1, you could use an extra 4 pin molex to power an extra fan but that would give you no control over the fan, or you could buy a fan controller and hook all your extra fans to it. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my solution fixya. Thanks.
