Sounds like the heatsink fan. Since the system powers up, it's probably not the power supply, since the startup current draw would probably be the greatest draw. I would suspect the heatsink fan next. If you've cleaned up the system (dust can really affect cooling), then I would check to see if the fan is turning and the heatsink is properly fitted. Also, make sure you apply thermal compound to the heatsink.

If you have replaced the power supply, the motherboard is the next possibility. Try disconnecting the power plugs from everything except the hard drive your operating system is on to make sure that they aren't causing the problem (possible but unlikely). Then restart the computer. If it continues to shut off you'll need to replace the motherboard.

Hi, what you have not tested for isolation is your power supply, re-seating of processor for 20 minutes, cmos clearing or battery removal and mother board swapping. If all your isolation seems futile the worst is the mother board.

My unit won't power up - power supply is good and not sure about the on switch any help would be appreciated -- motherboard is in an old HP Pavlion 700 case


Remove the little watch type battery from the mother board check the voltage with a meter should be about 3.5 volts. Then replace the battery on the mother board. This battery holds memory within the Bio chips on the mother board, if there was a problem that it sensed for turn on it will be in the Bio's memory, and maybe not allowing the computer to turn on, by removing the battery for a few minutes, the Bio's forget they had a problem, if you will. and the computer might turn on.
If you have all the voltages to the mother board from the power supply, it should turn on.
unless there is some reset circuit interfearing with it turning on. Or you might have a blown fuse on the mother board, I would check everything I could, and try everything I could, and if you still cannot get it to turn on take it to a computer shop and spend a few bucks for them to fix it.

Read the notes on flashing BIOS's before trying to flash your bios (if you stuff up I don't think there is anyway back).

Good luck.

ASUS P4VP-MX display problem


If I understand you right, your display is not coming on with your new hardware. Try the eliminaion process:

take out the new things. Install them one by one, and try booting each time you install one. If that passes, turn off and install the next one, until you isolate the one failing. Once you know it, installit properly or come back here for help.
