Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/f/powersupplytest.htm WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes. If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hope this helps.

Boot with press f1


to do a format you must boot the pc with the disc in the drive, and set pc to boot from dvd, in boot options, then when it comes to install options press options and format, this will do a wipe/format and you should be ok from then.

Comes up no opererating system.sees hard drive and cd rom.does not read vista disk in cd rom.know cd of vista good,do i just need to change out cd rom drive?


I think your PC is trying to boot from a hard drive without an operating system.

You'll need to change the boot option in the bios from HDD to CD.

When the boot screen comes up, look at the bottom of the screen, it'll say something akin to

Select "DEL" for SETUP or F2 for boot options, you can use either, but remember if you choose to change the setup, it will be a permanent change until you reset it.

Hit the requisite button, read the screen to change "The first boot device" to CD. If you change just your boot option, your pc should then boot from the Disk.

If you decide to change the bios (setup) settings you'll need to save and exit. Unless you're very sure, just change the boot option for now.

Systemax Ascent HA3200 RTS won't boot - fans come on - no display


The motherboard seems OK as it is displaying signs of life. The Monitor should display something before booting up, which it is not.Please do the following. 1. Remove the RAM and reinsert the DIMMs into their sockets and boot up. 2. Disconnect the HDD data cable from the HDD and the motherboard and reconnect. Boot up. 3. Disconnect the monitor and reconnect. Boot up. At boot up press F2 and set the PC to default settings. Boot up. Later when you want to apply your settings, keep noting down what you did when. Just in case.

Press F2 or Del during boot up and you will access the bios. You will have to look through the menus for something like 'logo on boot up' enable/dissable.
