No power (Compaq EVO D310DT)

Computer was working fine and pleeping at me every now and again!!! Went to use the computer and it had no power (as normaly leave it running) and would not power up with no lights on at all. Tried unplugging the power cord and pressing the on button whilst plugging the cord back in and the lights flash then die out!!!!! Think it might be the system boards battery (3v) Could anyone help cos i'm pi**ed off with computers now!! Regards

Dugiehowsa- You might also suggest the front bezel power switch. If it isn't working the PC won't come on.

Re: No power (Compaq EVO D310DT)

The problem could be almost anything pertaining to the motherboard. The battery just helps the system keep time when it is powered off. One easy thing to test is memory. If you have spare memory ofthe EXACT SAME memory type for the computer, try putting it in and see if the computer boots. It could also be the power supply. If you have a spare one lying around then you could try replacing it. Other wise, you will need to replace the entire motherboard. If it comes down to replacing the motherboard, make sure that you get the exact same type as a replacement so that all your other components and peripherals will work.

Compaq Evo memory problem

Just thought I would update as I have just had the same problem.
I turned off the computer, disconnected the hard drive and processor and then reset the Cmos. Reconnected everything and started the machine up. Don't know what it did but everything works fine now.
Keep in mind you may not reset while power is connected to the computer, could damage the mobo.
