Hi Bad news. your motherboard has been fried. You could try refashing the BIOS but I've got $10 dollars to your one that it wont work. Best bet - keep the tower, keep all of the running gear but a new motherboard and prosessor are in order.
Glad to be of help. Good idea thought would be to get a decent power board that also supports internet connections. "sacraficials" only cost about $50 AU but you can get decent resetables for around $200 AU. Less tears and angst.

    hi, have you tried changing the fuse in the mains plug and checked all the leads are in the back of the computer properly.
    Once this is done then try switching it back on check for the fan starting up if you have changed the fuse and still here nothing then the chances are the power pack has blown. 
    These can be brought and are easy to replace as this is the most likely cause of the problem. 
    Also if you take the case off before you switch it on then look on the board and see if their are any led lights lit up their should be a couple for the modem etc if not the the power pack has blown and will need replacing these can be brought for next to nothing from any computer repair shop.

    As for everything that is saved and all the files you need these will be saved onto the hard drive which can be removed and put into another computer but replacing the power pack will solve your problem.
    Make sure you change the fuse in the plug as it sounds like a power surge has tripped your computer out so unless its blown the fuse in the plug then you will need to replace the power pack which would be the cheapest option.
    But if you didnt want tto do this then remove the hard drive as this has all your files and all your saved files on it then this can be easily put into another computer giving you acess to all your files.
    This is also easy to do and something you can do yourself as its only two block connectors that go into the back of the hard drive you remove these then remove the 2 or 4 screws running along side the hard drive then put this into another computer remove the hard drive your not using and put yours in place then it will be exactly how your own computer was in the first place.

    Let me know if you have any problems and ill be glad to assist you further ok

Try unplugging th power cord for ten minutes first, if that does not fix it there is an internal fault, maybe the RAM or the motherboard.

    Ensure that there is nodisk inside the computer , if there is a CD/DVD remove it.


    Unplug all USB cables , and start computer with video, power, and mouse / keyboard cables only.

    Try unplugging the power cable for ten minutes or so.

    if that does not
    fix the problem, it means that there is an hardware fault, maybe the RAM or the motherboard.

    If you have worked on computer hardware before you may try removing one of the two ram moduiles, and test the other modules one at a time. If you have only one module, get a replacement and test it.
    Try also to start the motherboard without PCI cards (either than video adapter), and with hard disk and DVD unplugged, if it starts, then is one of the drives or PCI devices.

    If you do not have experience in working with electronics may be better calling a technician.

    Hi there: "I took the battery off the mother board for ten minutes and tested both rams separately and the comp did not boot."

    That probably means that the motherboard is gone.

    If you are in UK the whole Job will be around £100/£120. If you ask PC world to do the job, for example, they will charge you £65 labour + £ 50 or so for the motherboard, including VAT.

    If you are in US, there the parts are cheaper, and the whole repair should be approx. $120/$140 ($80 labor).

    The computer is still worth repair if you want to save some money. Sure, if you planned to get a new computer, this is the right moment.

NO DISPLAY on screen but processor fan is work


If it seems like the computer booted up all the way except the screen is blank.

If so try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok and works, then the video card inside the computer is good, but the original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If it does not seem like the computer booted up all the way try the steps below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the computer?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the computer and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Maybe your power supply is bad. Sometimes there is enough power to make the power light or some other lights come on but not enough power to make the fan turn on or hard drive spin.

I'm having problems with my compaq sr5000 desktop.


Is there any message that appears when you turn the computer on? Does anything post to the monitor during the boot process? Normally if the Video Card goes bad and the monitor works you will get a No Signal message on the Monitor. So you are so sure the monitor works, huh?

Since you went inside the computer check and make sure you pushed the Video Card (where the monitor plugs into the back of the computer) into the slot all the way.

Maybe your Power Supply is not working. When you press the power button do the fans start running and you hear the disk drive spinning? Just because you see a light at the the power button or on the motherboard does not mean the Power Supply is working correctly. I just changed one that did that.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.You didn't by chance remove the Heat Sink and CPU while you were removing the fan did you? If you did, you probably need to apply a fresh coat of Thermal Past between the Heat Sink and CPU.

Acer x3400 wont start up


Remove the Power Cord and then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and press the power button. If it reboots you had a Static Charge Buildup and released it by holding the power button for 30 seconds.

When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, disk drives running, cd drive clicks once, anything on the lcd screen? If not I would think your Power Supply is bad and needs to be replaced.

It's either the Power Supply or Motherboard.

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.


Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

Computer won't start up


sounds like the cpu is dead, if your fan was full of dust theres a high chance it wasnt working properly for a while which would of caused the cpu to fry from lack of proper cooling and also the dust in the vents would have prevented heat from escapeing so its highly probable that the cpu is dead try replaceing it, i cannot gaurentee that anything else internally got fried from the heat tho, i had a similar problem a week ago
