Computer turns on, but nothing happens

The computer turns on, but nothing happens after that. Everything is plugged in and the connections seem good. There are sounds, fans, and lights when the computer is turned on, and there are no unusual sounds. The monitor flashes a self-test message that the monitor is working and to check the pc and cable. Earlier I suspected a monitor problem and connected another monitor to the computer, and still nothing happened.

Yeah as donald said, But first try to reseat or clean your ram module its edge connector with soft eraser. But do this when the unit is off and unplugged from power outlet. Or place it to another bank with the same slot. Or your memory are already gone.

I had a similar problem with a Dell Computer. It turned out to be a bad memory card. If you have more than one memory card in the machine, take all of them out except for one. If that does not solve the problem, try swapping memory cards.

u can buy power supply testers, just a device you plug the power supply into, or try a new power supply. but if nothing is happening no fans etc theres a good chance its just the power supply.

Hello, Last night I shut down my Dell E510 desktop - the proper way - by going to the start menu, shut down, turn power off. Then, today, I pressed the power button on the front of my tower and...


This sounds like a definite power issue. This means that the problem could range from being as simple as the power button itself not working/disconnected to the power supply being dead.

Things to try:

1. Have the side of your computer open and press the power button. Notice if any fans start to move or anything that happens.

2. Do you notice the Hard drive light flashing at all when turning on?

3. Has anyone else been using or been close in proximity to the computer that could have bumped it, causing something to come loose?

4. ONLY if you feel competent enough, check the cable connections inside the computer. Make sure to disconnect from the wall for 30 seconds and reconnect before touching any cables inside. Leaving the cable connected allows the computer case itself to act as a ground to prevent static shock.

Good luck!

Computer turn on, but when it does it won't POST


It seems like a motherboard issue. It heats up, thus is not able to turn on continuously. You may need to check internal parts embeded on the motherboard llike the fan and processor before you could know what needs replacement.

I did not mistreat my computer in anyway. If the computer does not start up even with the battery charger in and everything, what does that mean is broken? The harddrive or the motherboard?


If when you press the power button NOTHING at all happens then the motherboard is bad.

If you turn on the computer and the lights all turn on but nothing else happens then the hard drive is bad.

If when you turn on the computer and you hear the hard drive start, the fan running and everything else seems to be working then your video card is bad.

when you say no fan you mean the cpu fan or the case fan. the cpu fan is on top the cpu. make sure that at least this starts. if it does not start then shut down your pc immediately as it can burn the cpu.
it could be lots of reasons, but make sure that you have connected the power supply cables correctly to the motherboard. probably the motherboard may have a small led. check if that lights up. it means that power gets to the motherboard.
i would advice to find someone that has more knowledge.

Nothing on my Emachines computer will turn on.


I would recommend rechecking your connection to the motherboard. All wires from the power supply to board and making sure the front panel switch connection are correct. Also, make sure the power supply is compatible to the motherboare. even though a 20-Pin ps will connect to a 24-Pin board, it still does not work. Good Luck

Screen won't turn on


when the computer boots does the screen light up? if it does the first thing you need to try is when you turn the computer on is to option boot. That is done by holding the option key while turning the computer on. after it boots you will see the the hard drive listed on the screen it will be a icon, if there you should be able to boot up. If the computer does not boot and your hard drive is still listed you most likely have a logic board aka mother board issue.

Dead pc


try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
restart computer.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.

Power Issue


sounds suspiciosly like your chord fitting is damaged(loose wires at connection)and shorting.if possible try a friends power supply with same connecter type before renewing cos could be faulty(loose)connection at pc(inside)constant pushing and pulling of connections often causes 1. loose split or disconnected wires at male connection or 2.loose pins on motherboard female connection or broken housing (not difficult to repair)more difficult to find out how to get to internal connection.
