Is it new? if yes, you probably connected the power supply wrong. most of these things are fine when they get shipped, there's just so many ways to not connect it properly that it's probably that. double check the manual of the mobo and the power supply and make sure youve got every connection right and tight. I have an engineering degree and I still forget to connect something sometimes, causing boot errors...

If it's not that, you have to think CPU connection or other peripheral connection is bad/defective/loose, and the motehrboard is just doing it's job by sutting down to prevent a fire. Doubel check your CPU connection. Did you use thermal paste? Is it snug/pproperly installed? An improperly installed CPU or other peripheral can cause spontaneous mobo shutdown, for good reason. The mobo manufacturer soesnt want you to fry your other components.

If not that, you may want to call your mobo manufacturer, you;'ll be surprised how willing they are to talk you through basic problems starting up. The lack of beeps or lights does bother me a bit in terms of pointing to a bad power connection, or a bad mobo. Usually you would rely on beeps and lights to diagnose what's wrong, as you know.

The mobo manufacturers are usually pretty good about shipping you a replacement if needed.

Good luck!

Check heatsink/fan for CPU first. If this is Ok then try a new power supply.

Inspiron 2600 PC Notebook 4 beeps


4 beeps (1 long-2 short- 1 long) is a Programmable Interval Timer code (motherboard error). And 1-2-1 is a Processor Register Failure (CPU). About your only hope with a laptop is to pull the battery and (highly recommended if at all possible) pull the RTC battery and then press down on the power switch for a few seconds to totally re-set the BIOS. If no joy, you might one at a time remove the RAM, hard drive and the CD to rule out a short in those components. Next step involves removing the keyboard, etc. to get to components such as the LCD and the network card. Pull them one at a time and try booting. When you have tested all the peripherals that are plugged onto the MB, you can assume that the motherboard is toast.

If not solved yet, make sure the fan is spinning on the heat sink on the processor. If it is, then if you have a video card installed, make sure that fan is spinning. These are 2 pieces of hardware that will cause the beeping and shut down.

It sounds like a hardware problem. Check the obvious like the power cables and plug it into a different wall socket to make sure that isn't the problem.

Does the computer beep when it starts up. The pattern of these 'POST' beeps can help you determine the problem. However if the computer doesn't beep, doesn't activate the BIOS and the hard drive doesn't spin up (with the HD light flickering) then you either have a fried motherboard or processor. Not an easy or cheap thing to fix.

Boot up problems


If it won't go past the splash screen, and you have replaced the CPU, I agree that it is probably the motherboard.
One other test you can do is, remove the memory chips, and any cards that are plugged it, and see if it beeps on start up.
If it does, count the beeps. If it doesn't it is the motherboard.
If you get beeps, plug the memory back in, and try again. Listen for beeps. Let us know what you find.

And I don't know if Compaq's do this (Dells do) when you turn it on, do the fans spin up normally? Or does it sound like a small jet? Speaking of which, do you see the fans spin up at all?
