There will be two rows of metal pins about five mm tall. They will be labeled with white letters. Something like HD, PW, RS, depending on what your motherboard connects to those pins. If you post the exact motherboard you have we can perhaps find you a photo or diagram.

It should start for a few seconds, the fans should spin and then stop. You should be able to power it up as per normal. If that is no the case then you are having hardware issues which could be the Power supply

No display, no cpu fan running, no any beep but led on mother board is on.I replace power supply but no result


Do the following to check motherboard.
1. Take out all cards from motherboard except video card. Unplug ribbons to CD-Roms, hard drives and floppy drives.
2. The only thing plugged into your motherboard should be video, keyboard and ram.
3. Check once again that all the power connectors from the power supply are properly plugged in. There may be two or three of them depending on the type of motherboard. Try turning on system. If you get no response then try next option.
4. Find the wire coming from your power on button and trace it to the motherboard. Pull the wire off and use a screwdrive to short between the two posts. If the power button is bad this should start the computer. If not your motherboard is probably toast.

The computer does not start


Make sure at the very least that the power cable is plugged into the wall (or a UPS) AND into the computer (and it is switched on).

Try power button, if nothing happens then...

Look inside the computer, make sure that you have wires running from the front part of the case (usually near the power button) to some pins on the motherboard...

If not then you need to figure out what wires are what and plug them onto the pins (use the motherboard manual to figure this out, or the internet; google your motherboard name + jumper settings)

Try power button again, if nothing then try another power supply.

Post back if you have any further problems.

CUW-AM no power


Try you system with a known working power supply. Your power supply could have an intermittent problem. It could be a lose wire or a capacitor problem. Putting back your system, Plug the 20 pin/24 pin power connector to the motherboard, plug the 4 pin extra CPU power in place, plug the panel connectors(Power button, reset button, LED...).
