Check the capacitors on your motherboard first. Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything. The dead giveaway is the fact that you are not getting a monitor signal and if you listen to your computer as it starts up, a few of the devices may not start (hard drive, etc). A failed video card will also give you "No signal message", but the computer should sound normal when starting up. Mobos are usually expensive to replace because the computer makers have them made especially for them and only order so many. They usually do not have a lot of extras laying around. There are a few companies that will repair broken capacitor issues. Hope this explains why they can fail.

Computer turns off after 4 seconds


1) Check to make sure your power on button is
not sticking.
2) Try disconnecting tv, monitors, and anything
external to see if it's not an external problem.
3) Make sure your ram sticks are seated
securely.

If computer continues to shut down after only a few seconds it could be a cpu or motherboard issue.

Make sure cpu is not overheating, and the fan on the cpu is plugged in and working.

good luck!

Beeps 2 times & a warbling noise when trying to boot up - unplugging power lead & pressing ON/Off button & reconnecting power lead starts up OK - but it can be OK for several days & then repeats the p


The Cause of Problem:

The Power Buttons electrical circle sometimes just braked it by one of sensors and the result is the 2 beeps and Power Supply is in protected mode error.

The whole computer is turn off but the power button is turn on and this is the nub of the matter. Because if you want turn on the computer you can't because already turn on but just the Power button and you can't do anything.

The solution:
You need just change the Power Supply and don't do anything just the power cable put into the Power Supply after turn off computer.
Finaly change back the Power Supply.

Power up problem


Hi, you most probably have a sticky on/off switch on your case. Turn the power off. Remove the side cover, trace your wires from the front switch to the mobo, identify witch is the power switch [this is usualy marked with PWR or PWS on the board and also on the wire from the switch. Disconnect this wire then turn on the power and use a fine screwdriver to bridge the two pins on the board, if all works properly then replace the switch Regards mistyman
