SOURCE: COMPUTER POWERS DOWN AFTER 3-4 MINUTES

In addition to that, check also the heatsink on the processor if it needs dusting, it may be filled with dust that it doesn't allow air to pass through to cool off the processor.

Please keep us posted.

SOURCE: power supply

Actually that means your motherboard has burned out and needs to be replaced. Your power supply is reporting ok with the blinking light. Depending on your model it could cost between $200-400 for a tech to fix.

SOURCE: Hp pc m7640n won't turn on and power supply light is out

OK, this can be a hard thing to fix. Most of the time, the power supply is the first thing to go on a PC. However, when you stated that the motherboards LED came on after you unpluged the PS from the motherboard, it leads me to believe that the motherboard is the issue but the power supply might be outputting higher voltages and the motherboard might be shutting down. Since the power supply is cheaper then most motherboards, I would recommend getting a new one. Check ebay for a new power supply. It should be about $20 with shipping. If the same thing happens, then you need a new motherboard...

SOURCE: My xps 420 pc desktop wont boot. Shut it down last

Try and reset your CMOS and see if it helps.

If you're not sure how, then unplug the power cable from your PC, then take off the side panel, on the motherboard is a set of 2 or 3 pins to Clear the CMOS (reset the BIOS) all boards are different, so there is no set location for the CMOS pins, if you're unsure, just remove the battery from the motherboard for about 30 seconds, then replace it ("+" facing up)

But you need to make sure your PS is not plugged into any external power source while you're doing this or you risk deleting your BIOS

Hope this helps in some way.

Bad power supply?


Do yo have a volt meter or an atx psu tester?
you can check voltage to see

If a power supply is bad, your pc will turn off or/and turn on and turn off. As long as your system is running without and shut downs your good.

However if your pc is turing off, I would change it as soon as you can. basically what is happening, when you unplug everything there isn't much of a draw on power so the light remains steady, but when you plug devices in there is a draw and the PSU cannot deliver.

I hope this helps.

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok


One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

My Everex Impact GA3400 acts as though it is not getting any power to it. It was working fine and just shut down and now I can't get it to start


it could be a busted power supply. check if the green LED lights in the motherboard when the unit is plugged (even if it is not turned ON, it will light). If the led is not lit, the power supply is defective.

Blinking green power light & shut down


There are (4) 1000uf @35V capacitors all together on the DM board that need to be replaced some models have 1000uf @ 16V but they are all right beside each other and all rated at 1000ufs the voltages will be stamped on the capacitor along with the uf ratings.
