Computer wont power up eve though it getting power

Hi my computer wont power up when i push the power button. The power pack lights up and i know the mother board is getting power because when i move the 9 pin end of the power switch down a few knotches it makes the light come on the power switch. Could my motherboard be blown or my processor or the 9 pin socket on the board?

    i changed the computer case over to a new one and found that the power supply didnt work and the case didnt work so put it back in the old case and found i had the same problem that it would power up. The power supply on my old case is definetly working and the motherboard is getting power im wondering if it is damaged. Also now i have noticed that the power lead i used for the new case has stopped working also so maybe there has been a blow out and its screwed my components?

Computer won't power on right away

Wll it could be your pci controller is damaged.. (In thic case the only solution is to buy a new board)

Or you bios might need flashing..

Unplug your system
Open up the system,
put back in your network card
remove the battery on the main board
hit the power button 7 times
replace the battery
plug it back in and try to boot now

When it boots, you need to enter the setup and load your default settings then save and exit..

Why my computer wont turn on?

Sometimes there is a reset switch on the bottom of the laptop, which I'm assuming is the type of computer you're referring to. Check the bottom for the word reset with a little hole by it. With the charger plugged in and working, push the reset switch for just a second or two with a small pen or pointy object, then press your main power button and see if that works.

I have a HP desktop pc with a RC415ST-PM motherboard, it wont power up when I push the button, it's dead with no lights or any indication that it is operating. I have tested the cable and power supply, ...

Are you using the power button or ru shorting the pins directly? I know these mbs have a bios battery problem. Try to replace the battery and see what happens. The battery on my Rc415st-pm only last a few days and a bios error appears telling you to change battery. Hope this helps.

Power switch notworking ( ASUS P4PE-X Motherboard)

Please refer your motherboard manual and fix the front panel cable including power button. After this if power button is not working than swap the power button cable and reset button cable.

And then start your PC by pressing the reset button.

Else you just recheck all the cable + RAM + CPU.
