Find out what brand your motherboard is and look for the beep codes, each motherboard is different but these beeps are there to tell you the problem. if it isnt turning on when you press the button it is most likely a power supply problem like you said and you should try reconnecting all the power connectors to the motherboard and make sure everything is in place. also look for the voltage switch on the back and make sure it isn't at the wrong voltage that has happened to me more than once ;)

Do you hear any fans? You may need to open the computer case and look inside to see if you have any led's or fan's functioning. If you do not see any lights on the mother board or working fans, check the fan inside the power supply by looking through the fan guard. If you do not see the power supply fan working, make sure you have the computer plugged into a live outlet, and the power cord is good. Furthermore, look for a switch on the back of the power supply to make sure it is switched to the on position. If you still have no working functions of the computer, go to a computer store like Comp USA or Best Buy and purchase a power supply tester which you may find for under ten bucks. Touch the metal case of the power supply while removing the main power connector of the mother board. Always touch the metal case of the supply to discharge any static, or you could cause immediate or future damage from weakened static sensitive components. Plug the power connector into the power supply tester and make sure all lights light up. If no lights light up, you can check the fuse on the supply if it is external, or you will have to open the power supply to check the fuse. Alternatively, you can buy a new power supply which you will need to do if some of the lights on the power supply checker light up.

If the fans work on the computer and the power led's work then you may have a bad video cable connection, video card, or monitor, which will need to be checked individually. If you hear any beeps, check your manual for the description of the number and duration of the beeps which will indicate bad video or memory sticks.

I hope this helps but you can reply if you have any other questions. I think it could be the power supply with all the storms this time of year which could have killed the Power Supply which is easily replaceable.

PC wont start. Have checked all cables: OK. The Power LED (front) is blinking (blue color) and pressing the powerbutton for several seconds only resluts in a very short blink on ACT (red), POW (red)...

First thing I would do is check the power source. Try the wall outlet with a known good lamp or something, see if its working. if not use another. if it is try a different Power cable for your laptop (it is a laptop right?). If you try another known good power cable and its still not working then its likely a power supply issue with the computer, in which case you would need to get it repaired or replaced.
Your certain its not turning on and you just have no video? do you hear any beeps? sounds? windows booting? etc?
Try the power first. see where that takes you.

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!

I just had a new motherboard put in my emachine (struck by lightning) and it worked for about a week but I would have to turn the switch off in the back of the cpu after shutting down to get it to turn...

Good day sir, Hi! my suggestion is to swap out first your power supply box, after the lightning, it may have been damage, then try new memory modules, if you have spares swap it with your pc.

PC won't boot up.

recheck all connections, make sure the switch on the back of the power supply (if it has one) is set to the on position. there is a chance the motherboard has failed. with the power off examine the capacitors on the motherboard, especially the ones near the cpu. if they feel rounded on the top they have failed. unless you are good at soldering... consider buying a new motherboard.

Pc used to work fine but now won't boot, post or beep. No sounds at all, just a black screen and monitor lamp stays on orange!

Check the mains power supply cable. Try to Connect with another cable. Or, the SMPS power supply unit may be at fault.

PC will not boot

Your power supply is not woring properly, the short whistling sound was from the fan of your power supply. Maybe its too dirty, try to clean it well and place it back. Maybe it might help you..

Intel desktop board D845wN - no screen display


Switch on your computer and listen for a beeb sound.... if no beeb sound available then your Motherboard has a problem.

if beeb sound comes then switch off your computer and see for the loose contacts on motherboard.

eg. remove ram, clean ram socket and put back the ram

your problem may solved.

Asus a8v-vm se fans always run

Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.
