Power Supplies usually don't get faulty. Sometimes my BIOS would get stuck & I plug the Lithium Battery (Coin Cell) out and plug it back in & Everything works fine. For example this problem is like having a USB storage stuck at copying/deleting something and you have to PULL IT OUT and PLUG IT IN to make it work again. Sometimes this type of problem may occur with SATA Cables, the one who connect motherboard with harddisk. Sometimes the ram would get faulty. Process remains the same. In 10 Years of my computing history I don't remember facing any problems with Power Supply Unit.

Hope this is revelant.

How do I know if the power supply is bad on gateway gt5676 computer? I push power button and nothing happens. I unplug it and the green light flashes on the power supply( Bestec ATX 300 12 EB3). Plug it...

u can buy power supply testers, just a device you plug the power supply into, or try a new power supply. but if nothing is happening no fans etc theres a good chance its just the power supply.

Gateway mx6214 will not powerup -bought a new power cord and it still doesn't work. What could be the problem?

It is the plug in the laptop that is most likely the cause, plug the power supply in the laptop. Now put your thumb on the plug at the laptop, as you bend it sideways hit the power button repeatedly to see if it will power up, failing that take the main battery out of the laptop and use power supply only. Please take the main battery out first to see if your power supply will start the computer if the computer starts up change the battery.

Not sure if power supply is good??

The supply fan won't run unless you turn the supply on. You can do this by shorting the PS_ON pin on the output connector to an adjacent ground pin. (This page has a nice diagram of the power supply connector.) And just because the fan starts turning, it doesn't mean the supply is good.

Measuring the output of the supply without a load can give misleading results. Especially with a digital voltmeter, outputs can look good but drop too low under load to run the computer. You can buy a power supply tester from several sources that you plug the supply into, but nothing beats an operational test in the system.

New power supplies are quite inexpensive. It might just be easier to buy one if you have any concerns that your current supply isn't working. You can also test the supply in another computer. If that one shows the same trouble as the one you pulled the supply from, you know the supply is responsible. Otherwise you know you have more troubleshooting to do in the rest of the system.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Needing to plug new power source to motherboard, need the diagram format

the easyest way to do it is to open up the side panel of the computer rite down the info off the side of the power supply such as voltage and so on then go out and buy the same type then as you pull out a plug from the one in your computer put in the same plug from the one you bought and you should be rite, theres nothing that technical you need to no just disconnect it from the power and pull out the plugs its that easy

Dell e510 won't make it to post

Unplug computer, disconnect all usb/monitor/internet, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop out the BIOS battery (looks like a big watch battery and use a small flathead screwdriver to depress the spring lock on one side), plug in computer, hold power button for about 20 seconds (must reset BIOS), let up on power button, wait 10 seconds and push power button. The computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stable (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

If this has worked you have proven that it's not the power supply (it turned on). If you purchased a non dell power supply, you might try this with the original one installed.

Go buy a new battery (CR2032 3 volt). Unplug computer, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop in new battery, plug in (you should notice the power button blinking amber again), hold power button until it stops blinking (about 20 sec....again must reset BIOS), wait 10 sec., push power button. the computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stabe (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

Now, close case, plug in all usb/monitor/internet/etc. Power up computer. You'll get an internal floppy drive error. Push F2 (maybe F1) to get into the BIOS settings and go to "drives" and turn off the internal floppy. Save and exit. The computer should boot properly now.

This seems to be a big problem with the e510, my theory is that this one small battery is the root of most of these failures (as these computers usually fail after 1-2 years), not the power supply or the motherboard (heck, when you replace the motherboard it comes with a new one of these batteries...a several hundred dollar piece of hardware, with a $5 battery that will actually fix it).

Computer will not start

When handling motherboards and any sensitive ICs you really have to be careful and discharge any static electricity you may be carrying by touching the case before handling even with the power off. Double check all your power connections and especially the logic cables going to the harddrive. It seems to me that one of those connections is not quite right. Good luck. and God bless.
