    nah the graphics card works fine, im also getting no beeps from the motherboard like i used to do on initialisation. it seems like it just wont start

  • David Lynn Feb 16, 2007

    yeh ill try that, but i thought the mobo was suppost to beep if there was dead ram.

    the mobo was working, it worked well for about half a year but then just blanked out and i couldnt get it working again.

Hey adeckofhands,
having had a lot of experience assembling desktops over the years, i believe i can help u with your problem. (I know i am really late, but i just viewed this thread, SORRY). For starters, there is nothing wrong with your motherboard. It is either your power supply (PSU), or your ATX case. When these new motherboards are NOT properly GROUNDED, the bios does not boot and therefore the system does not start. However, the fans do run and the power is sent to hard disks, cd roms, or anything which relies on external power from the PSU. You can say its a safety feature. Following is a list that you can follow to solve this issue:

To begin with, make sure all the POWER connections are properly made.

Secondly, make sure the back of your motherboard (the metal spikes) does not touch the metal of ur ATX case. this trips the motherboard, and therefore it does not start. In order to resolve this, you can loosen the screws which attach the motherboard to your atx case.

Thirdly, insure that your PSU is working properly and that you are using a power cord with a ground or earth extension. You can also find equipment that can measure your PSU performance (sort of like a voltmeter or an ammeter)


WARNING!!!(LOL)
If all the above fails and you really want to know if your motherboard is working and wanna fix this issue, you will have to do it the HARD way(or ask someone who is a professional). THIS PROCEDURE IS RISKY...so be CAREFUL.

1. Carefully remove everything from your motherboard.
2. Remove motherboard from your ATX Case.
3. Remove power supply unit (PSU) from your ATX case
4. Place your motherboard and PSU on a wooden cardboard or a table, facing up
5. Install the Memory (ram, make sure u install it in the correct DIMM, follow the motherboard Manual)
6. Install the CPU and its fan
7. Place the hard disk flat on your table/cardboard and make the IDE or SATA connections (whichever is applicable)
8. Carefully Install the GRAPHICS CARD, (THIS PROCEDURE IS WAAAAY EASIER IF THE GRAPHICS IS BUILT-IN, but unfortunately for you this is not the case)
9. Make ALL the neccessary power connection from the PSU to all the various components of the motherboard, internal and/or external
10. Connect the Keyboard and Mouse
11. Connect the POWER ON/OFF, HDD LED, POWER LED, and RESTART cables from ur case...hopefully they will reach your motherboard :)
12. Connect your power cable to the PSU and then to your power socket
13. CROSS YOUR FINGERS AND PRAY...

SWITCH THE THING ON....

if you properly made all the connections and followed my instructions, the system should have work...

In short, I have had this problem numerous times, and i mostly fixed it by loosening the motherboard from the ATX case...

If there are no life signs, then there may be a memory problem, try one stick on it's own and see it boots. Has this mobo been running before?

PC start up failer


  1. remove the two rear screws and remove all the cards attached to the main board
  2. unplug all the cables that connect from the drives to the board.
  3. power on the unit
  4. if the unit powers up, install one of the cards you removed and complete step 3
  5. if the system does not power up, the last card or device activated will be your culprit and will need to be replaced or left out.


if you find that your system will not show a bios splash screen with all the other components removed, then you are looking at either a video, or power supply failure. Listen to your system for spinning fans and hdd activity. touch the hdd if you cant hear it when you power up the system, paying close attention to when the drive activates. It should activate almost immediatley, pause, and then run for a short boot period. if nothing, then if may be your power supply. you will not be able to see any lights at all, no light on the motherboard, drives, or power LED is the best indicator of a shot power supply

When pluged into outlet fans spins and doesnt stop, wont boot


Fan spinning hard is usually a CPU issue.
If you've made any hardware changes to your computer, undo them. This happened to me when I was trying to upgrade my Processor (CPU) and I had the wrong kind.

My hp dv9000 will not boot. when power is turned on all leds light up screen stays black. hard drive and fan can not be heard. restarts after 10 seconds with no error message or flashing lights.


Remove the hdd cover from the bottom and make sure it is completely seated and connected. If the hdd is properly installed and it still will not boot, try entering the CMOS Setup. If you can enter setup you most likely have a bad hdd. If you can't you need to take or send the pc to a repair shop.

Toshiba 5205-S503 Laptop- No power


- You may want to try to reseating all neccessary things on the system like optical drive,hdd,memory but before you do that disengage the power from the system like the ac and battery.

-If no..go try to remove the optical drive first and then turn the system on, then if the system boot without the optical drive shut it down and put back the optical drive and boot to bios and load the default setting and boot the system normally.
