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?

You will have to get your power button unstuck. I do not know what type of button you have but if you would like to at least get your PC on without it instantly turning off, you can remove the power switch connector from the motherboard. You will eventually need to have the switch unstuck, or replaced though.
I always start with the power supply. Your power supply may not be producing all the power your motherboard is requesting, even though the light on the back is on. If you dont have a power supply tester, then you can try removing your power supply and trying a known working supply in it, making sure you have the right connectors on it for your motherboard..
I looked at a pic of your motherboard Asus A8n-vm and I dont see an orange (or any) button to push. Was that to reset your bios? If so, unplug the system from the wall, and carefully remove the battery from the motherboard. While it is out, push the power button on the front of the computer a few times. The computer wont start up, as you have it unplugged, its just to drain the motherboard of power to reset the bios. Then reinstall the battery, making sure it goes in the same as it came out (- is usually down and + is up). This should reset the bios info to the factory settings.But I still think it is a faulty power supply.
Found this problem on a few Blazers and S-10s . Try pushing the hazard button in and out a dozen or so times then turn them off and check brake lights. The brake light circuit runs though the turn signal switch and hazard switch. Contacts get dirty and wont let power get through. Hope it works for you!
Either the power supply has a loose connection or is faulty. You can try removing the battery pack, press and hold power button for 3 seconds and then put battery back in and see if it corrects the problem. You can test power output from the supply to see if it is putting out the voltage it states it should on the label of supply.
Even though a lot of things might have gone wrong and caused this, especially if where you place the System is not well ventilated, and the CPU becomes very hot, it shuts down automatically...and you will have to wait for a few moments, get a cool environment and power it on. but I will also try and tell you some troubleshooting steps that you can try.
Since you have already checked the power source and all is Ok, then try this out:
Disconnect your PowerPack(Power Supply Unit) from the CPU and try to power your PC with another Power Pack (Power Supply Unit), that you are very sure is working.
If it powers up, then just get a new Power Pack(Power Supply Unit) for system.
If you cant do this yourself, just get a good technician to do it for you.
Try this first and let me know how it goes, so as to know the next step.
Hi, this indicates to me that you have a low battery and the power pack is not functioning resulting in not enough power to boot the computer up. A replacement power pack will fix your problem. Regards mistyman
