I do not want to alarm you, but you may have overheated your computer. To check, think about where you kept your computer and what was the climate? constantly working in a hotter climate or even having worked on your computer for very long periods of time with out shut down, can cause over heating. If you did not, the fan or sink could have been broken or stopped working properly, there fore, overheating occurs. this wouldn't be your fault because you didn't know it happened. If you know how to take the casing off your computer, do so carefully and make sure to ground yourself. Then plug in the power cords, and turn on the computer, checking to see if the fan circulates. If it doesn't, then you have a fan and harddrive problem.

(Means, you can buy a new computer, yah!)lol (sorry, just trying to put a positive on the negative!)

HDD making clicking noise/will not boot into windows


do you see anything when you press the on button?
if not, it might be the motherboard, which means the most important part of the computer is broken and it has to be replaced (the motherboard that is, but i warn you, OEM versions of windows might not work anymore) if you see something until windows should start just replace the harddrive

You might try removing the CMOS battery on the motherboard for at least 10-15 minutes to see if that will reset or clear the bios. You need to remove it for that long to dischartge the capacitors, Another thing that may work is:

Turn the computer on
Press F2 to enter the BIOS ( a grey screen should come up)
Turn on caps lock,scroll lock and num lock on your keybord
Press Alt +E then Alt +F then Alt +B


If this fixes your problem, please take a moment to rate this answer. Anything less than a 4 thumbs up is essentially a negative rating. I don't think people seeking help here are aware of that, but that's how the rating system works.

My tower has power but won't come on


first guess is the motherboard is bad

a few things you can try:

unhook the monitor from the computer and test it on another computer. If the monitor works then its most likely the motherboard.

leave the computer unplugged for a few hours then plug it back up and give it another try just in case it overheated.

have the computers power supply tested as a bad power supply can cause all sorts of issues.

other than that you are down to a new motherboard and or a new computer.

Computer will not boot up after i disconnect power


If the component with the blinking green light is on your network card, it has nothing to do with your problem, but does demonstrate that *********** board is NOT fried or there would be no voltage available to make the light blink.

Something on your board may be fried, but not the entire board.

Unit needs board level service, so obtain an RMA, if available and submit the unit for bench testing and service.
