    I have the same problem. When I start the computer, fans start but system does not boot up. Took the cover off and noticed that the CPU fan is not running. It looks like all peripheros, including, HDD, attached to the motherboard are not functioning. What can I do?

    Same problem, happened over Christmas break. Machine will not go into BIOS, sounds like hard drives are spinning up but not being accessed. I'm going to try the CMOS battery as suggested here and we'll see.

    I'm having the same problem too. I turn on the pc and the cpu fan comes on, lights comes on, but the HD is definitely not being accessed. I thought maybe it was a bad power supply, or possibly bad memory modules(I have 4 extras and I know they work). This is seriously frustrating

    the proc fan works the pwr fan works and the case fan works and the hdd led blinks, no spkr connected to hear beep codes. no power to hdd or cdrom or floppy drive

    AsRock K7S8XE+ M/B - power up and nothing happens at all -other than the tiniest movement of the cpu fan. No lights, beeps - nothing. PSU works as I've tried another M/B on it. AsRock M/B worked OK when taken from old PC and connections seem all to be correct. Other than binning it, any ideas as to what is wrong?

Here was the fix for me. The machine refuses to boot if the video card is not functioning. It should have one long beep however to tell you that there is a video problem. Someone hooked up our speaker incorrectly though! So we got no beeps. Once the speaker was hooked up and the video card was replaced, all is well!

I have the exact the same problem here. I checked my battery and it is ok. I think it may be the onboard videocard that fried because my monitor hadnt a connection to ground earlyer.

Same problem here. The CPU-fan, fan on the videocard and the fan of the power supply run immediatly when the power supply is turned on. No beeps, no display. Nothing happens when the reset button or the power button is pressed. I found out the HDD, CD and DVD start up when disconnected from the mobo. If connected to the mobo neither one starts up. I replaced the battery with the one from my calculator. (calculator works with both batteries). I tried a different power supply with the same result. Any ideas?

Are you hearing any beeps, or can you get into the bios, to check that it is recognising your harddrives. Secondly check cmos battery it may be flat. It may also be halting on all errors, you can turn this off by entering the bios(press F2 or DEL on start up) then entering the 'standard cmos features' or settings; then dissable 'Halt on all errors'. This will then show on the start up what the problem is. All this is of course if you can get as far as the bios menu. If there are 2 beeps which says memory ok, setting ok, then the CPU has died. One beep means normally memory problem, but you will have to check beep codes with your motherboard.

My aspire 5542 wont start up .... the power button light is on but the screen is black...there is no noise if the hdd work.. plss help


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

How to troubleshoot laptop startup problems


When your laptop lights momentarily, but almost immediately shuts down, try removing the battery and booting the unit with the battery removed. If there are any problems with any devices such as the battery, fan, ram, wireless card, dvd or hard drive the unit will not boot. You should also remove the cd, ram, wireless card and the HDD. With those items removed if there are no other problems your unit will boot as far as the BIOS and then prompt with a message saying there is no operating system. This would eliminate the motherboard as the problem. If your unit does not boot to the prompt you have a fan problem or a motherboard problem. At this point you would have to remove the bottom cover and try to boot while watching the fan for movement. No movement, replace fan. Movement, replace motherboard. It it does boot to the prompt try reinstalling the HDD and booting. If it won't boot then the HDD is bad and would need replaced and formated with the original factory discs. If it boots with the HDD, try installing the ram and booting. Same procedure until you find the bad part. This will take some time but should narrow the problem to the bad part.

Does not boot up, fans start, internet plugs light, clicks on and off.....seems this is a common problem for these machines, what is the fix?


Instructions
  1. When you press the Power button to start the boot process, the LED lights glow while the computer verifies that there is sufficient electrical power to activate the hardware.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LED lights on the computer do not glow or the LEDs blink briefly and then stop. There is no sound of the fan or hard drive spinning, and the screen remains blank. The computer will not start if there is insufficient battery or AC adapter power.
  2. The BIOS queries various hardware components used for the startup boot process.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow but there is no fan or hard drive sound. The LEDs may glow briefly and then go out.

    Or

    The LED lights blink, stop, and then blink a second or third time, but there is no sound from the computer and the screen remains blank. The sequence of the blinking lights indicates a specific error code.

    Or

    A series of beeping tones is heard. The sequence of beeping tones indicate a specific error code.

    If a hardware component has recently been replaced, or if the PC has been jarred or shaken, there may be a loose connection to the memory chips or hard drive which prevents the computer from starting.
  3. The BIOS loads the basic input (keyboard) and output (advanced LEDs / display screen / boot drives) devices into memory.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, but then the boot process stops and a black screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a communication error or conflict with a hardware component that must be corrected.
  4. The BIOS loads the Windows operating system and starts the services that allow low-level control of all of the background operations.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, the HP or Compaq Logo displays on a black screen, but then the boot process stops and a blue screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a hardware driver error or a software conflict that must be corrected.
  5. Control is transferred to the Windows loader to initiate the display of the advanced settings in the Windows environment.

    The Windows logo displays during this step.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the computer performs all the steps in the boot process, but after the Windows Logo displays, the moving Windows progress bar or the rotating cursor stops moving and the boot process stops.

    An error message may display on a screen with the Windows logo. In some instances, there is no specific error message.

    Or

    A black screen appears and the computer attempts to restart.

    The Windows self-check has detected a software conflict that must be corrected.

My Acer 5670's power light turns on and stays on, but the computer never boots up. The screen stays completely blank. The hard drive light turns on for a moment and then shuts off. While it's in this...


perhaps you might need to reset or enable the correct boot sequence in the Bios settings of the pc.
On some pc's you press F2 whilst booting to get to the boot sequence pages,,,,navigate then using the "tab" of arrow keys ,
Familiarise yourself with these setting and pages you wiill have a chance to save and exit.
Press enter to change a value or reset completely to default setting if you wish
Goto "boot sequence and learn how to get the pc to boot from different devices

I have an acer aspire 9300 which will not boot up.


Try removing the battery and booting the unit with the battery removed. The fact that you say the battery is bad leads me to believe it has shorted. If there are any problems with any devices such as the battery, fan, ram, wireless card, dvd or hard drive the unit will not boot. You should also remove the cd, ram, wireless card and the HDD. With those items removed if there are no other problems your unit will boot as far as the BIOS and then prompt with a message saying there is no operating system. This would eliminate the motherboard as the problem. If your unit does not boot to the prompt you have a fan problem or a motherboard problem. At this point you would have to remove the bottom cover and try to boot while watching the fan for movement. No movement, replace fan. Movement, replace motherboard. It it does boot to the prompt try reinstalling the HDD and booting. If it won't boot then the HDD is bad and would need replaced and formated with the original factory discs. If it boots with the HDD, try installing the ram and booting. Same procedure until you find the bad part. This will take some time but should narrow the problem to the bad part. Let me know if you need more help.

Boot sequence


blvd1635,

You need to press escape after pressing the power button to access the BIOS. press the home key to reset all the default values. In the upper right hand corner you should see the boot sequence. if the hdd is listed as the first option press end to save the configuration and exit.
