    Not sure if this is a power problem, but the symptoms are all the same. The HDD lite flashes amber, the keyboard lites flash. I swapped out the power supply without any changes. I had a clicking noise earlier, when I reconnected all the cables, the floppy drivce was the source of the click, reconnecting the cable solved this issue.

If the above didn't work try make sure u connected every thing right. For example Common mistake is that u need too connect main power plug to ur hardrive first then cd drive. They should have numbers on them 1 is main and 2 3 4 5 and so on. And make sure u connect the hardrive to the mother board correctly. It could have just u connect ur hardrive to the wrong slot.

Try powering it on with the hard drive unplugged. If any cd, dvd or floppy drive is in, plug them out also. Retry to see if you get at least a boot screen.

Phase 1
After power button pressed, computer will detect 5 components :
1. Power supply - OK (enough power)
2. Main-board - OK
3. Processor - OK
4. Memory - OK
5. Video Card / VGA - OK

The characteristics of damage to power supply
1. Power supply fan does not spin


Video power supply fan not spinning

If the power supply fan is not spinning, the possible cause of damage to power supply. Solution, replace the power supply.

How to check the damage to power supply
2. Power supply is weak (resulting voltage power supply can not turn on the computer or the voltage is less)
The characteristics of damage to the processor

Normal fan without processor

Normal fan with processor


Based on experience, the possibility of damage processors is very small. To check for damage to the processor, install the processor to another computer (for comparison).


The characteristics of main-board damage
Because the new main-board, so the possibility of the main-board damage, very small. The characteristics of damage to the main-board, when the power button is pressed
1. Power supply fan not spinning
2. Processor fan is not spinning
3. Casing lamp is not lit
4. Main-board lamp does not light

Hi would like to know in which order the components start on a intel extreme dx 58S0 motherboard,eg 1.processor 2.maybe ram ,then keyboard ect.


1) Installing? I don't think this is your problem/question, but............

Processor on the motherboard, Thermal paste on the top of the Processor, Heatsink/Fan combo on on the top of the Processor.
Ram Memory Installed.
Motherboard installed in case.
Graphics card installed, and all other add-in cards.
Optical and card reader drives installed.
Power Supply installed, power cables attached.


2) Are you are looking at the order in which BIOS recognizes the devices?

You press the Power On button.
The plastic Power On button assembly presses against the Power On switch. The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.

Example of a typical ATX power on switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

When the Power Supply is plugged into power, there is a constant 5 Volts inside the Power Supply.
The 5 Volt Standby power.

Pressing the Power On switch closes the switch temporarily.
(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch)
This redirects the 5 Volt Standby power to a different circuit in the Power Supply.
The Soft Power On circuit. (PS_ON)

The Power Supply comes on.
The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
The BIOS program is initialized.

BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, both on the motherboard, and external peripheral devices.
BIOS then does a Ram Memory count, and turns the Processor on.
Finally BIOS hands the computer over to the Operating System.


3) This is a motherboard diagram.
CPU stands for Central Processing Unit.
Another name is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

Blue screen came on then the computer went off and will not boot up. will re installing windows xp work or what do i do?


Due to your diagnosis, it sounds to me like Power Supply failure.

Weak Voltage power rail.
Not enough power to keep the Processor on.

(In this case, No, re-installing Windows in a Repair, will not fix the problem)

Lights will light, and fans may spin, but there isn't enough power for the Processor.

1) ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt of power.
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.
3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Depends on what Processor it is.

(For example, if this Optiplex GX260 was ordered with a Pentium 4, 2.26GHz Processor, {Socket 478}, it can use up to 58 Watts,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

If this computer, and Power Supply are dirty inside, it's a pretty sure bet the Power Supply is bad.

Test the Voltages of the Power Supply to see if they are correct. Specifically the 12 Volt power rail.
If it is 11 to 13 Volts, it's okay.
Less than 11 Volts requires replacing the Power Supply.

Test can be done with an inexpensive multimeter, or a power supply tester.
One example of a power supply tester,

NOTHING COMES ON NO SIGNAL TO MONITOR CHECKED POWER SUPPLY STILL WONT COME ON


Hi,
If the power supply is good and showing proper voltage to the rails but no fans turn and absolutely no power is going to the computer, then it could be the processor or motherboard is burnt out. Check that power cable is firmly connected, the switch to power supply is on, and there is power going to the outlet.

My pc is an emachine but when i try to turn it on it automatically turns off but the fan is running


The power supply is bad. Electrolytic Capacitors inside the power supply. The 'Caps' are filters for the power supply. (Used in both the Input Stage, and Output Stage)

Inside the power supply are Voltage Rails. The 3.3 volt rail, the 5 volt rail, and the 12 volt rail.
Bad capacitors = a bad voltage rail. Not enough power from the power supply. Your processor doesn't have enough power to turn on, or stay on.

Why is the fan running?
ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt of power.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
A processor can use 55 to 125 Watts. Depends on what processor it is.
Plenty of power to spin a simple fan, but not enough power for the processor.

Yes I'm sure, is the answer to your question.
(No I'm not psychic. Approximately 80 percent of the computers that come into my shop, have bad power supply's)

My processor has two fans the upper one doesn't work at all.


Is the upper fan in your power supply?

Your computer actually has 3 fans, one attached to the back of the case, one on the processor, and one in the power supply.

At any rate, fans are cheap. Go to Mwave.com, newegg.com, zipzoomfly.com, tigerdirect.com,.......you get the idea.

Measure your fan, preferably in mm or cm, and order several of the proper sizes and replace all three.

Updrading power supply of Dell Optiplex GX280 Small Desktop.


Hi there.
No, 400Watts will not affect your computers performance, it just means that you will be able to add more peripheral devices to your PC, for example, an external or internal hard drive or more USB devices.
Make sure you get the power supply from Dell themselves as you will find it difficult to install a standard PSU (power supply unit).

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Power shuts off and takes several minutes to turn back on


If the computer is overheating, those are the symptoms that would happen. Turn on your computer with the cover off. Are all the fans working (even in the power supply)? Is there a lot of dust build-up anywhere? Can you try another power supply? You need not install it in the computer case, just hook up the connectors with the known good power supply just outside the case and try it. Is your processor heat sink securely connected to the processor?
