    Had a password in the bios that I could not remember, took the battery out to clear the cmos, replaced the battery and press the power button and nothing. The leds on the motherboard are on, so I disconnected all components to the bare ones needed. Press the power button and nothing, no fans no beeps nothing. Any ideas why taking the battery out would do this?

    need a little more information than that. What happened before it died? When you say it will not power up what exactly happens when you push the power button (Do the fans spin at all? Do any lights come on? Are there any beeps or other noises?)? Your description indicates that the problem is likely the Motherboard, CPU, or power supply but it could be other things as well.

LAPTOP does not turn on. only fan runs.


Things to check first.
1. Make sure you have a new BIOS battery installed. Some computers will not start if the battery for the BIOS is dead.

2. The CPU may have overheated and no longer works. I lost a CPU and everything was dead.

3. A dead motherboard can also act in like manner.

Sometimes something will come loose on the motherboard causing a direct short which of course fries the motherboard and probably the CPU. Dropping a laptop can shake things loose.

My Daughter had this happen with hers. It was a 800 dollar HP Compaq and I had a heatsink come loose on my HP Compaq which fried CPU AND Motherboard. Beware of HP since they bought Compaq.

I have no local c drive how can i reinstall


Either:
* the existing disk-drive is not connected (power, data) to the motherboard;
* the existing disk-drive is "dead";
* there is no disk-drive at all inside the case;
* the motherboard has been told to "ignore" the device.

So, either:
* connect (power, data) the disk-drive to the motherboard;
* remove the existing "dead" drive, and install a new one;
* buy a new disk-drive, and install it;
* enter the motherboard's "BIOS SETUP" mode,
and use the "auto-detect disk drive" tool to "add" the drive.

Will not power up


This is a common problem with Emachine motherboards, the problem is the power supply is a best tech and allows voltage surges to the motherboard which fries it too. If available you usually have to replace both the power supply and motherboard. I do not know what exactly goes bad on the motherboard but I have replaced many emachine power supplies and motherboards. The motherboard kit which used to be available from Emachines included a power supply and no warranty if you didn't change the power supply. They knew they had a problem.

My compaq computer lost all power after I replaced dvd hardware. I'm told by knowledgeble people that this is most likely a motherboard problem and that it can be difficult to replace them in this brand....


One thing to check is, you knwo the power cable that goes into the dvd player, this some times can go in upside down. if it has its blown your board , but there is a chance it hasnt make sure its the right way, and try again.

HI, I have an Acer Aspire AM5641-B5540A. THE SYSTEM IS COMPLETELY DEAD. i HAVE RULED OUT A BAD POWER SUPPLY. WHAT DO YOU THINK COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


Hi,
I understand now that you really checked out that power supply. Before we rule out a dead mobo, you should make sure the on off switch on the computer case is not broken.

Look on your mobo and find the power switch leads from your case power button to your mobo and remove them. Short out these two pins with a small screw driver and see if computer goes on.

If that fails, and you checked your memory and CPU, then well, R.I.P. motherboard.

When you buy a new motherboard, make sure and get one that accepts the same processor and memory, and video card that you have now. It is not terribly complicated to replace the motherboard but if you have never done it before be prepared to spend a few hours reinstalling your operating system and all the correct drivers for the new motherboard components. Also make sure you get a board that will fit in your computer case, not all boards are the same size.

Gigabyte motherboard connection front panel to motherboard?


Have you reseated them properly? Did you have the power connected still when you took them out and put them back in? If you had power still plugged in you have probably fried the ports.
