I can't on my pc,power supply also good .but no any indication on CPU and monitor.


Have you tried another AC outlet? Are you getting power to the Computer or monitor? Is it turned on? The monitor has a on/off switch , is it comming on with the switch? Do you have a multimeter to verify AC volts? Is the PSU Working? Is there a in-line fuse on the motherboard? Without the Make, model, of computer it's impossible to say. One thing for sure it's a power problem. The video isn't helpful. Check ALL cables.

Won't turn on


Power supply testers are a handy tool for owners of computers as well as having your computer hooked up to a back up power supply to insure you are not subjected to a brown-out, a loss of line voltage, which wreaks havoc on electrical components. If your power cable is good and properly connected and there are no lights on the unit or no beeps or sounds when pressing power button good chance power supply is bad. But if you have never opened up that computer and it is more than a year old, then there could be a fair amount of dust inside and the power bridge on the motherboard could have blown out, if you know what capacitors are there are 5-10 of them towards backside of CPU on motherboard, the tops should be flat and not leaking chemicals out, if they are you need a motherboard, I have not had one come back to life with new capacitors yet, tried 2 so far...

My dell dimension computer won't turn on. When I push in the button, it only flashes orange and then won't turn on.


Plug the computer into a power strip that has an on/off switch. Turn the power strip on. Press the computer power on button to start as normal, but after after one second turn off the power strip switch just long enough for the fans on the computer to slow down, but the amber computer led doesn't turn off and then turn the power strip switch back on. Computer should start and run fine. Computer typically can be shut down for up to 5 minutes and restarted normally--any longer and you have to sue the power strip power switch routine again

Hello, i have a slim line s7700n and i have a problem. The screen wont turn on and it displays no input signal. I dont know if its the monitor or the computer?


1. You could have a faulty video graphic card on the mother board.
2. Your display or LCD screen has a bad power supply adapter or not get power at all.
3.Your display has a bad inverter board and needs service. I cannot tell not being able t o see the devices physically.
4. A computer tech can determine this with a few simple isolation test such as disabling the video card and using a know good one in the pci or AGP slot and connecting the monitor to it.
I hope this helps. Have a good day.

I can't heard no music why?


Several possibilities come to mind: speakers have failed (self-powered speakers have bad power brick, cable damaged, etc), speakers plugged into the wrong port (audio in instead of audio out), audio card or driver has failed.

If you recently had to restore your OS (or do a roll-back to a "known" good configuration), check your audio device (make and model) and make sure you have the latest driver installed. (Look at the website for your computer if it is a prebuilt system or look up your motherboard if it is an on-board audio device.) The device manager might have a yellow exclamation mark on the audio device if this is the issue (access from the Windows Control Panel)

Check for bad speakers by trying another set of speakers or plugging them into another computer. (Swap cables if that is possible.)

I hope this helps.

With power supply removed from chassis, how to get the supply on.


!! the signal you want to short is not the power supply good (pin 8, gray wire) but the power supply ON (green wire, pin 14) which needs to be grounded to turn on the PSU. (short pin 14 and pin 13 or 15)

hope this helps

My computer keeps turning off while I'm playing a game both on & off line. It also turns off while I am running a Webroot Spy Sweeper on my computer. This also happens while both on & off line.


have you installed or replaced any hardware such as a video card, extra hard drive/DVD drive, etc? Generally computers will shut down when too much power is required but the power supply isn't able to handle it (PC companies manufacture computers so that they work with the bare minimum power supply wattage).

Also, make sure the outlet/surge protector you're using isn't faulty, and everything is securely connected inside the case (Hard drive/Optical drive cables, sound/video cards, RAM, power supply cables, etc)

How old is your computer? Did you recently have a power outage or anything? Most the time if a computer won't turn on, something in it went bad OR an outlet is bad. Try this:

1. Make sure that the power switch is on, the switch in the back (on the power supply itself) is turned on, and everything along those lines is functioning.
2. If that doesn't work, and it will not power on AT ALL, make sure the cords are plugged firmly in place, including the surge protector and/or the power cord itself.
3. Try resetting the surge suppressor and/or plug the computer into a different outlet in the surge suppressor. Try other items in that surge suppressor (or even in the wall outlet, if that's what you're plugged into) to make sure that the outlet itself is working.
4. If your computer is plugged directly into a working wall or surge suppressor outlet, try a different power cord.
5. If your surge suppressor works, your wall outlet has power to it, and you are using a known-good power cord in the computer, you will have to go into more in-depth investigation as something inside the computer likely went bad. It could be the video card, motherboard, CPU fan, power button, or the power supply itself. Start by testing the video card and the power supply by (one at a time) swapping out a known-good component for the one you suspect may be bad. If it won't turn on after that, try swapping out the next and try it again. If it still will not work, it could be something more serious such as the motherboard or power button.

Good luck!

it could be a bad power supply or a bad motherboard. Other problems might cause issues, such as a bad video card.

Light is solid yellow on front switch, won't boot


if you are certain the power supply is good(try it in another machine) and its completely connected it sounds as if your motherboard is going bad, there is a 5-volt supply in your power supply that does not turn off when the system shuts down, its called 5-volt standby, this runs some small circuits on the motherboard that monitor the power switch, when its pressed the circuit starts up the whole power supply. thats how we can power off the system with software. usually its a custom chip and some components, but without the schematics of the motherboard and the replacement parts and the ability to de-solder and solder on a multi layer board its not usually repairable by the end user.

the system memory and processor are not even used in this part of the system startup, they come into play after the supply is up and stable and supplies the power good line to the motherboard.

make sure the supply is good, and all connections are making contact, that none of the pins have backed out of their housings when being plugged in and that there are no cracks in the solder joints where the power connectors attach to the motherboard.
