Just install a new power supply because the first blow out. mointor lite up but stay on orange light what can be the problem

Make sure all of the ram cards are in properly make sure that all power cords are plugged in correctly and make sure that no other wires where disturbed when you installed the power supply also make sure that the mother board is not the problem because sometimes when a power supply goes out it can burn up the mother board

New power supply does not it the motherboard

well there are two ways to to figure out which item is broken first you can hook up the power supply and test the pins in the plug with a voltage tester to see if it has power. I do not recommend this approach if you are unsure of what you are doing the voltage coming from a computer power supply is very dangerous. the second thing you could do is attach a different power supply to *********** board if ti works the mother board is good and it your power supply that is busted. Also make sure to check the back of the power supply and make sure it is set to 110 and 220 voltage because this can cause your power supply to not function correctly. It will be a little red switch on the back that says 110v on one side of it and 220v on the other.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,

I disconnected the wiring from the face cover to the motherboard on a emachine model T2984. how do the wires reconnect? three plugs red-white black- white bluu -white

you will need to down load the mother board connection chart if you connect them the wrong way round there is a chance that you may damage the board but mores to the point if the wires are usb support if you get this wrong you will destroy most usb items as current will flow up the data lines (bad times) wait untill you get it right (good times)

All of the plugs? Most of them should be straight forward. Thin ones around an inch wide, go to your CD and hard drives, long one around 1cm x 1.5inch goes into the same socket on the board (there will only be one of them). You may also have another socket on the board thats 1cmx1cm and requires 4 pins, there will be one connected to the power supply that fits it. You can find the manual (will contain a diagram for you) at;

Problem with ASRock P4i45GV

THANHTHHP, memory is very important to start computer.Some cpu's need a minnimum [a pair] 2 memory sticks
Do not plug the power supply ONTO the mother board. Do plug the a/c power cord in back of the power box, turn it on.Does the fan turn on [spin] and u feel air coming out? If fan is on, that is good. If fan is NOT on, that is not too bad because some power supply NEED to connected to the mother board for it to have a path.The power supply can SHOT DOWN if connected wrong or there is a short on or in the mother board. Look to see if ANY piece of metal, one of your screws fell in between metal contacts.,Did u put the computer together yourself? Look to see that the contacts [under the board] are NOT shorting where the screws that hold the mother board down to the chassie body

No power

Hi, to bypass the start button you will need to disconnect the wires from the front of the case where they plug into the motherboard. these are usualy marked on the mother board as to which one is which. I recomend that you use a torch and read what each wire is pluged onto. Also draw a map of the sequence, color codes and position of these wires. The one marked PWR SW is what you are looking for. Bridge this with a screw driver and see if that powers up your board. If this fails then have a close look at the capacitors on the board. These are the round things that stand up from the board at several locations. If any are bulging out the top or show signs of leakage from the bottom then its time for a new mother board. Good luck, mistyman
