Re: PC wont Boot/start

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)

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 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


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?

How to fix a motherboard that does not turn on at all.

Make sure there is power at the outlet, surge suppressor, power strip. Be sure any connected UPS is on. Try again.

Remove any recently installed hardware and go for boot. If the PC boots, check to make sure that the new hardware does not overload the old power supply - if it does, replace with a higher capacity power supply and go for boot.

Open the PC. Look for indication of power - LEDs, fan, etc. Replace the power cord between the outlet and computer if one is available, and go for boot.

If possible, obtain a power supply tester to determine if the power supply has failed. Replace any failed Power Supply and go for boot.

Disconnect power. Disconnect all non-required cables and accessories. Leave only the power and data cables for power supply, boot drive, video card, mouse, memory and keyboard connected - everything else should be removed (with the exception of the small cables that go to the MoBo headers for LEDs, and switches on the case). Everything means both data and power cables. All controller cards should be removed as well unless using on-board or built-in controllers. Reconnect power and try for Boot.

Add devices, cables, etc one at a time to determine which is causing the fault. A PC that boots and shuts down shortly after could be an indication of overheating / over load. Clean dirt & dust from case, ventilation slots, etc. Make sure all fans spin freely - replace any that do not.

Those are some things to start working on.. hopefully, you'll find the problem and not have to go further. Good luck!

No video \green led near keyboard, hdd drive light indicator and wireless lights turn on. green power indicator on ad adapter, tried two different batteries. cpu fan not spinning...this thing will boot...

You can try doing these:

Clearing the CMOS, i.e. Unplug power cord and take out battery, then put them back in.

Cross check the components such as heatsink/fan, video card, and processor. It is never good to have a heatsink with the fan not spinning.

Check to see if the heatsink is cold, warm or hot. It shouldn't be cold OR hot.

PC won't boot (no signal and no beeps)

check the board for blown capacitors. I have found many boards from power circuits to motherboard with popped capacitors over the past 5 or so years. replace them and tada, it lives again. I've been successful several times with this operation. Please see the picture below for a guide to finding bad caps.

Hi guys my p.c wont boot! when I press the power on and press the front power button all the fans start running and the c/d rom starts trying to spin i.e the green light flashes 2 times every 5 sec's or...


The problem that you have are same in common, if your cd room will not boot you need to first boot your cd room, you just go to the BIOS to first boot your cd room,, when you turn on the computer you need to press the delete key (or F2) after that, use the arrow key to select, chose the boot priorities, then you need to first boot your cd room, after the cd room first boot, press F10 to save, the ok

Good luck !!!

My Pc wont boot no signal in my monitor Help!

May be your in second HDD, you didn't set the jumper up. There are some more settings you will have to configure in the BIOS menu. in the BIOS, you should set the primary HDD as the master and the second(newer HDD) as the secondary. Then it should boot without any problem but if the problem persists I don't know what to do next.

Stops booting

Did you remove the components that you upgraded, and try adding them back one by one?

Will it give you a POST screen?

Does it Beep at boot time? If it is noisy try moving it to another room.

Describe the original components and then the ones that you upgraded in detail. This will allow us to better troubleshoot the problem.
