Your help in this reagrds will be greatly appreciated ...

Thanks

    All the capacitor have flat and clear tops. One thing I should have mention is before replacing the power supply the previous power supply toasted. It smell really bad. So that's the reason I had to replace with the new one.

Sounds like a thermal issue. New power supply might be overheating the cpu causing the thermal sensor in the cpu to automatically shut down so the cpu doesn't fry. You could try adding a case fan or two plus upgrading the spu heatsink/fan. Hope this helps.

WILL NOT TURN ON!


Is this a new problem and this ran fine until now? If so, you want to make sure you have power going to the computer, power at power strip or surge protector, cables all plugged in correctly and tight. If all that checks out then the most likely cause is the power supply has failed. If you have had power surges or electrical storms recently this could be the cause. If not, your capacitors in the power supply could just be at the end of their life and died.

97 chrysler concord. wont turn over, has nothing to do with battery, ran fine stopped at store, did not turn over afterward, all lights worked. Next morning started right up, started the next 10 times,...


When it won't start I'm guessing you can not hear the starter turning the engine over. If so when it is acting up it should be pretty easy to see if there is power on the small wire at the starter with the key in the crank position. If there is power there and there is power on the larger wire at the starter, again with the key in the crank position, than the starter is the issue. These are also known to have corrosion issues at the connections on the battery. It wouldn't hurt to give those a peak or even clean up those connections.

Ok i have a 1999 hyundai accent wont start changed fuel pump and it started ran very bad very! turned it off wouldnt start back up again checked spark plugs no spark and no power going to fuel pump we are...


Changing the pump doesn't affect the spark so lets start a that the beginning?? Why was the pump replaced and was it running fine before changing the pump? Also plugs could be fouled as well but if it was working fine before the fuel pump it will be fine afterwards if getting gas and the fuel pump was the problem., Also how did you verify no spark??

Turns itself off every time I try to take a photo


I had a similar problem with my Cyber-shot S600. It just turned off every time I tried to take a photo. I bought a Sony recharger + batteries and it fixed the problem. Camera works fine and I'm impressed with the how long the batteries last between charges.

ATI x1650 Pro Stops!?


For this card they recomment at leat a power supply rating of 450 watts. If you have lower than this then I would suggest upgrading the power supply. A 550 watt psu is reasonably priced and should give you plenty of power for future use. Hope this helps.

You need a new power switch. I am currently working on a S4020WM with the same problem. I cut one wire to the power switch, then used a paper clip to make a jumper to start the machine. It has run fine since then. The only trouble I am having is finding a replacement switch.
