07 ram. Clarion vz401 has blinking red light, thats it! Disconnected everything and checked fuses. Everything is fine. Will not power on no matter what i do


Hi Deli:
My suggestions:
- Use a voltmeter to confirm power supply
- Make sure power supply connected to correct wire.
- Confirm that unit is properly grounded. If ground wire, use continuity meter to confirm that ground wire is indeed grounded.
- make sure speakers are properly connected.
And last, but most important, Did the unit work before you tried to install it. There's not much fun in trying to make a dead unit entertain you.
Hope this helps.

Replaced power supply cleaned everything


Wow, that's crazy, because I would have bet it was the power supply too. I would measure the new supply voltages, just to make sure it isn't bad too. Next, unplug all extra devices except your motherboard and hard drive. This will eliminate them from the problem, and if one of them is bad, you'll know. Hard drive is probably good, but when the computer initializes the cd, dvd drive, etc., it overloads the power supply and it shuts down, as they're designed to do. Could be a part of the motherboard, but don't think so, just doesn't sound like it. Might be monitor, notice if the computer shuts down just after it turns on. Check the speaker wires to make sure they're not shorted (if happens once in a blue moon). I don't think connecting to MSIE 8 shut it down, but that's the onery thing about computers- you just never know till you know. An afterthought, is since I guess you were having problems before (hence changing the power supply), you could have gotten infected with a bug of some kind, that left it's mark in your bios. In that case, you have to reflash your bios, or have it replaced (on older machines). If it comes to that, you might google the problem of flashing your bios on your Gateway, and see what comes up. Good luck, I had a blue screen problem once similar to this, and just scrapped the system for a new one.

I moved my home office desk a few days ago. I properly powered down my computer and unplugged everything. When I reconnected everything, the computer won't power up.


1 - Make sure you have power to the outlet you plugged the computer into. 2 - Make sure all of the cables plugged into the back of the computer are firmly seated / attached.
3 - Check that the switch on the back of the computer (usually quite near the power cord) is turned on.

Replaced power supply after the old one died and now all i am getting is a solid amber light on motherboard with a green blinking light on usb port


first off double check your power connections to EVERYTHING. sometimes those connections will loosen. if those connections are fine then its a faulty power supply or there isnt enough power going to everything. double check with your motherboards manufactor and see if you have enough power for everything if you dont a bigger power supply is needed

Nothing on my Emachines computer will turn on.


I would recommend rechecking your connection to the motherboard. All wires from the power supply to board and making sure the front panel switch connection are correct. Also, make sure the power supply is compatible to the motherboare. even though a 20-Pin ps will connect to a 24-Pin board, it still does not work. Good Luck

Need2 know wiring diagram 4 power supply 4 a emachine T2642


Hi there
The power supply should be ATX 20pin connection and also a 4pin connector, look at this picture below so you know you have the power connections in the right places>>ba37bd3.jpg
On the top left of the picture, the big cream 20pin socket is where the 20 pin connector goes.
In the middle to the left you will see another cream 4pin socket is where the 4pin connector goes.
If your power supply does not have the 4pin connector the pc won't boot up, you will have to go out and buy one.
If you have all the connections right and the on/off button is connected to the front panel properly, take out the system memory, clean it with a clean, dry, soft pain brush and also clean the slots too, re-seat the memory and reboot the machine to see if it boots up.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Won't start


I would first check your power supply which is the part of the computer where you the power plug comes from. This will probably need to be replaced. This device supplies all the power to your computer to run it.

If you have any more specific questions about the power supply, please let me know.

Psu blinking green light, no power


I read all the solutions, followed the manufacturers instructions exactly, replaced the cmos battery and nothing solved the problem (blinking light on PSU after a power failure and no startup at all). I had ascertained that the PSU was intact by disconnecting all the PSU connections to drives and motherboard at which time the PSU LED stopped blinking and was constantly on.
Just before throwing my computer away I decided to follow the instructions listed by "guest" to unplug the power to the motherboard and then with the power supply back on to plug the cables back into the motherboard. No only did sparks not fly, but it started up and ran perfectly! Many thanks to "guest."
