No boot or beeps

My pc just recently started having some problems. I turn it on, and the fans would come on and also all the components (hard drive, video card etc.) would power up. However I would recieve no beeps or video to my monitor. I have tried every thing I can do with the resources I have, save for buying a brand new mother board. I have replaced the CMOS battery, reset the bios, disasembled my computer, and cleaned off every thing. My final analasyse is that my mother board is just dead and needs replaced. However I get the feeling that thier is somthing that I am not trying. My mother board is an ASUS P4P8X. Any help would be greatly apreaciated

    The same thing started happening with my Medion last night. No boot/beeps. The fan just blows continuously. Did you ever determine the problem?

  • If there is no power available at the notebook, contact HP to purchase a replacement battery or AC adapter.
Symptom 2: LEDs blink or computer beeps but does not start Blinking LEDs or beep tones indicate a hardware failure during the pre-start up testing.
  • Count number of blinking LEDs or beeping tones to help with diagnostics testing.
  • Contact HP for technical assistance. There are no other user-initiated troubleshooting actions until error codes are resolved.
Symptom 3: LEDs glow, fan noise may be heard briefly, display remains black, and computer fails to startup or boot Usually occurs if a component is installed incorrectly, or there is a device conflict or failure.
  • Connect an external monitor to check if the problem is the built-in LCD display or graphics card.

    Does not boot up, fans start, internet plugs light, clicks on and off.....seems this is a common problem for these machines, what is the fix?


    Instructions
    1. When you press the Power button to start the boot process, the LED lights glow while the computer verifies that there is sufficient electrical power to activate the hardware.

      Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LED lights on the computer do not glow or the LEDs blink briefly and then stop. There is no sound of the fan or hard drive spinning, and the screen remains blank. The computer will not start if there is insufficient battery or AC adapter power.
    2. The BIOS queries various hardware components used for the startup boot process.

      Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow but there is no fan or hard drive sound. The LEDs may glow briefly and then go out.

      Or

      The LED lights blink, stop, and then blink a second or third time, but there is no sound from the computer and the screen remains blank. The sequence of the blinking lights indicates a specific error code.

      Or

      A series of beeping tones is heard. The sequence of beeping tones indicate a specific error code.

      If a hardware component has recently been replaced, or if the PC has been jarred or shaken, there may be a loose connection to the memory chips or hard drive which prevents the computer from starting.
    3. The BIOS loads the basic input (keyboard) and output (advanced LEDs / display screen / boot drives) devices into memory.

      Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, but then the boot process stops and a black screen - with an error message - displays.

      The boot check has detected a communication error or conflict with a hardware component that must be corrected.
    4. The BIOS loads the Windows operating system and starts the services that allow low-level control of all of the background operations.

      Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, the HP or Compaq Logo displays on a black screen, but then the boot process stops and a blue screen - with an error message - displays.

      The boot check has detected a hardware driver error or a software conflict that must be corrected.
    5. Control is transferred to the Windows loader to initiate the display of the advanced settings in the Windows environment.

      The Windows logo displays during this step.

      Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the computer performs all the steps in the boot process, but after the Windows Logo displays, the moving Windows progress bar or the rotating cursor stops moving and the boot process stops.

      An error message may display on a screen with the Windows logo. In some instances, there is no specific error message.

      Or

      A black screen appears and the computer attempts to restart.

      The Windows self-check has detected a software conflict that must be corrected.

    MY T6524, will not start I press the button and the hard drive light goes red then nothing comes on the monitor


    Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
    Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

    If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
    either of these sites below will help you further with that

    Beep codes Pc

    More beep codes

    Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
    If not then double check the power connections to the board.

    If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

    If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

    Now connect one drive only and boot again.

    Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

    Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

    If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

    Sometimes this indicates that there is a problem with your hd or other components, Try booting off your winodws cd/dvd and go to the repair console and enter "fixmbr" See if that helps. If it is an older version of windows (311, 98, 95) try running fdisk from boot disk and make sure the partition is active.

    Have a Dell Dimension 3000. It will not turn on. The power supply is good. How do I tell if I need to replace the mother board or the processer?


    The best way forward in these instances is to strip the machine down to basics. Remove all boards and extra drives and just leave the motherboard with one graphics card. Then try rebooting again. If it boots, then start replacing the peripherals and cards one at at time. Eventually you will work out what the problem is!

    If it still does not boot, try swapping the memory cards ... or if you only have one then try reseating it. SIMMS/DIMMS can work loose with the vibrations of hard drives/fans etc.

    Good luck!

    HP Pavilion dv4 not turning on


    You must be facing any of these four issues:
    1) power issue
    2) No POST
    3) NO Boot
    4) No video

    Power issue - the system does not turn on at all. In this case check the AC adapter and the battery.

    No POST - You may have to check the Memory, Hard drive and the optical drive. Can also be an issue with the video card2.gif/ key board/ mouse/main board which can prevent the system from turning on.
    try reseating all the components above except the motherboard.

    No Boot - Issue with the Operating system. Try booting into safe mode and check whether the system turns on perfectly. If so try to uninstall all the software you do not use. and may also consider a system restore2.gif else consider a Dell Complete factory restore.

    No video - Try flashing light on the screen and look for the desktop. If you see the icons then probably the back light needs to be changed else the issue is with the display itself or the video card.

    Kindly comment with more details about the problem.
