I can already tell this isn't going to be an easy one. Let's try a few more things.

  1. Unplug the power supply from everything inside the PC. Leave it plugged into the AC cord. On the main motherboard (ATX) power connector, find the pin that goes to the green wire. Use a modified paperclip to short that pin to the next-door pin that should have a black wire. This should cause the power supply to turn on and you should hear its internal fan spin up. If not, this could be a sign the new power supply is also dead.
  2. Plug the power supply into only the motherboard and AC cord. Remove all unnecessary PCI cards and peripherals. Also, if the system has multiple RAM modules, remove all but one. This should leave the power supply, motherboard, video card (if it's not built in), CPU, and RAM as the only items connected. Power up the system and see if anything acts differently.
  3. If there are multiple RAM modules, try every different combination of modules and slots.
  4. I will ask this only because I've done it myself. In the swap between the old and new motherboards, did you verify there were no extra mounting stand-offs that might be touching something on the bottom side of the motherboard? If old and new motherboards are the exact same model, this shouldn't be an issue, but you never know.
  5. Verify there are no jumpers on the new motherboard that might need to be set for the front side bus, memory speed, etc.
  6. Ask your friends, family, and neighbors if anyone has a Pentium 4 in an LGA775 package that you could "borrow" to verify it's not your CPU causing the troubles.

SOURCE: trying to change out power supply on a Gateway

be sure that you connected the main plug (20 or 24 pin s) ...and the 4 pins for the HDD and the 4pin power for the disk drive ...another important thing for to work is to connect the CPU power ..cause it will not start without ..
check the cable from the monitor ..and if it makes a beep or two ..it means that it starts correctly and you have to see if the monitor is powered and the cable in place..
also check that the coolers are all spinning ..
in the end ..remove the BIOS battery and insert it back ..just in case you messed some settings or so ..and after that press f1 on start to confirm that you want to boot with the time unset..and set the Bios time from windows..
if anything is written on the screen ..read carefully ..cause durring the process something may been damaged and usually on the boot the computer will show you on screen what's wrong..

SOURCE: my gateway 503gr will not

This could have a bad power supply (in this case I would try a new one just in case).
All other things being normal, I would guess a bad motherboard.
The best thing to do is disconnect everything but the CPU and memory and try to start it.
If it starts, then start connecting stuff until it doesn't start--this will tell you what is bad.

Check my guide created for such an ocasion, it is entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Seems like you may have a slightly loose connection, that is between the mainboard and the solder of those 20pins on the mainboad.

Try pushing it in tight, it should clip in, as there is a clip on the one side on the 20pinblock. Then once it is clipped in pull it slightly, without releasing the clip.

This will ensure that the 20pins will make contact with the mainboard.

The other solution to this problem is to check the solder points of these 20pins.
Another is that the mainboard may be damaged, therefore needing replacing.

Take care!

Computer not working. checked the power sup & its good. I see a light blinking in the mother board (next to the power connecter. How can I fix it?


Hmmm... if it won't turn on make sure the power button is pluged into the motherboard correctly.. if it is already and your computer still won't power up try switching out the power supply because sometimes they only go out partially, i had that happen with my old computer, the pwer supply only powered half the motherboard and unfortunantly it powered the cpu but none of the fans and completely fried my processor. Hope this helps, Daniel

Power button not working. computer won't turn on. I got a light on, on the mother board but computer won't turn on


This is usually caused by either a faulty power supply or a dirty switch. You can find out if it's the switch by pulling the wires off the motherboard where the power switch plugs in, and with the power supply plugged in, carefully short across the two pins. If the computer doesn't start, that rules out the power switch. The other likely culprit is the power supply. If you can get ahold of a different power supply, try hooking it up and power up the computer. If that daesn't work, chances are that your motherboard is shot. Good luck.

I have an AsusP5P 800 mother board and the unit won't power on.


I had a very similar issue like this, how many RAM modules do you have installed? if you have 2 DIMM installed try removing the memory on at at time(try interchanging the RAMS), see if turns on. if not might be the motherboard itself thats possibly defective.

Will not pwer up. Greenlight blinking on back


The green blinking light can mean there is a problem with the power supply.

Try unplugging the computer from the wall, and turning on the pc on switch.

After a few minutes, try plugging it back in.

If that does not start things up, you may have a bad power supply.

If the power supply is bad, these models take standard power supplies. You should get an ATX 350Watt or higher power supply.

They are easy to replace, unplug the power from the wall, disconnect all the cables inside the computer. Unscrew the four phillips screws outside the back of the computer where the power supply is attached to the case.

Remove and replace.

If you don't feel comfortable with this, a good local computer shop can help you out.

EMachine T2482 Computer won't power on or boot up.


Try removing the power cable from the power supply. Wait 10 seconds, and replace it again. Try powering up the computer. If it doesn't power up, check that the motherboard has power (there should be a LED on the board which is lit up. Of course, check the fuse also in the plug.

If the LED is on, you have a failed motherboard / Switch. If the LED is off, then you have a failed power supply. Beware though, if the PSU has blown, it could easily have taken the motherboard with it.

Re seat your RAM and any other cards that plug into the Mother Board such as PCI cards then try starting the computer again. If that doesn't fix it, then you can uninstall devices and try to boot until you find the culprit, as those beeps you hear sound like hardware error beeps that can be caused by faulty hardware (even keyboards or mice) that plug into your computer. Eliminating all removable hardware should help you determine whether it's an add on component or if the Mother Board itself is bad.
Good luck

Dimension 8200 will not turn on


Try a new power button. Also does the machine power light turn on at the front of the machine? if so check that the CPU is seated correctly as if it has come out of position then the machine doesn't boot. I would like to think power switch though.

Thanks J

No power no light


Could be either one, or it could be the toggle switch.

Start with the easiest first to check. Unplug the power toggle switch from the mainboard and take a screwdriver or something and short out those two pins to see if it starts the pc. if it does, then your pc case switch is just bad.
If that's not the problem, check the power supply next.

Jumper the ATX 20 pin power cable's green wire to any black, just to make sure the power supply is working. The fans in the power supply will turn on along with anything else hooked up.

To jumper the power supply use a section of wire or a bread twisty (with the insulation removed from the ends) and just connect the green wire to any black wire on the 20 / 24 pin power connector. Make sure that the power switch on the back of the power supply is switched on.

If neither of those seem to be the problem, then most likely it is the motherboard or the processor.
