Sir, I have a Dell optiplex GX110. At the motherboard there is a long brown slot in which a board of 4 expansion slots has been pluged. The first problem was that I had removed the heat sink from the...

When you inserted a test probe into the slot and you saw a spark, then you have short circuit a component on the motherboard and have done a major damage to the motherboard.
You need a new motherboard, most desktop cases have standard mounting holes, you may be able to purchase a motherboard from other manufacturer to fit in the Dell.

It sounds like a hardware problem. Check the obvious like the power cables and plug it into a different wall socket to make sure that isn't the problem.

Does the computer beep when it starts up. The pattern of these 'POST' beeps can help you determine the problem. However if the computer doesn't beep, doesn't activate the BIOS and the hard drive doesn't spin up (with the HD light flickering) then you either have a fried motherboard or processor. Not an easy or cheap thing to fix.

Board power is ok but run cpu&fan plz give me answer

1.Check the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard. Specifically the one's around the processor. These are Voltage Regulators for the processor.
The processor must have DC voltage within a specific range. This zone, or range is very small. Too much voltage, the processor turns off, or won't start up. Too little voltage does the same.

This link will show what Electrolytic Capacitors look like, and what they look like when they are failing, or have failed,

Electrolytic Capacitors are the number one weakest link, of computer hardware failure.
For ease of explanation of construction of them, they look like little aluminum pop cans, they have a rubber seal at the bottom of them, and inside them they have Electrolytic paste.

When the capacitors start to fail, the paste inside develops a gas.
(Hydrogen gas) This gas expands, and pushes the against the seal. The seal's edge pushes out of the 'can', and paste starts to ooze out. So much paste loss, and the capacitor operates at a weakened state. Too much paste loss, and the capacitor fails.

Besides the motherboard capacitors failing, the next area to watch are the one's in the power supply. Power supply's have voltage rails inside. More specifically, they have a 3.3 volt rail, a 5 volt rail, and a 12 volt rail. Voltage may be thought of as the 'speed' of electricity. Amperage may be thought of as how much.
Volts times Amps = Watts.

If you have a power supply with weak, or failed capacitors, you won't be getting the full wattage your computer needs. Your motherboard power light will light up, other lights will light up, fans will spin, and the harddrive sounds like it's working.

ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
The harddrive just sitting there spinning it's platters, uses about 3 to 5 Watts.
PROCESSORS use 55 to 125 Watts!!

So you see you can have lights lit, fans spinning, and the harddrive spinning, but when BIOS tries to turn the processor on, it can't!
Not Enough POWER!

Mother board no display

Looks like the lights are on? Fans spin? Sounds like the harddrives spinning? The power supply is bad. has just enough power to light lights, and spin fans, but not enough for the processor. (No beep sounds, because BIOS hasn't done a memory count. It's not going to)

ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
The harddrive just sitting there spinning, uses about 5 watts.

Processors use 55 Watts to 125 Watts. Depends on the processor.
Not enough power to turn the processor on, the computer won't work. Computer isn't working there isn't anything to turn the monitor on. No Signal.

Processor fan failure massage.

I supose the fan works, you then need to enter bios and disable cpu fan monitoring, if the fan doesnt spin connect it to another fan connector or a plain 4pin molex connector / might require a adapter.

Try to get into bios and disable cpu fan fail alarm, keep the temperature alarm on 80 or 70. so it will yell if it gets too hot.

New motherboard and cpu: no post

I have encountered that kind of problem before in the AMD processor. When your turn on the switch the fan is spins and then suddenly stop. The processor is shorted or there is defective parts you need to return it to the supplier. But can you check first if the motherboard and the processor is match . Maybe the motherboard cannot carry the speed of the processor it's better to ask to the supplier or ask them to test both the processor and motherboard .

Continous Beeping sound

Hi neosw,

Could you provide a little more detail?

Was this a previously working set-up or is this a new build?

If this was a previously working set-up have you changed anything?

When you switch on the PC
  • do you see anything on the screen, does the monitor remain in standby?
  • are any of the fans running?
  • does the hard drive spin up?
  • does the beeping sound stop after a short while?
The reason I ask these questions is because a continues beeping usually means that the BIOS is not seeing the processor, or that the power to the processor is not correct. With some BIOS manufactures it can also mean the processor clock speed is not set

Please don't take this the wrong way but...if you provide greater detail in your question, the easier it for us to diagnose your problem, otherwise we can only make educated guesses.

I hope this has been of some help.
