Re: SUDDEN POWER FAILURE
The light on the motherboard will be on as soon as you plug the power supply in. If, when you turn on the computer, the fan in the power supply does not start, your power supply is bad. In my experience, the switch in an ATX machine does not go bad--it's just a device to close a contact. If you really want to check it, though, find the place on the motherboard (lower right side as you are looking at the board with the top of the case away from you) where the wires from the front panel are plugged in--the ones that say pwr switch or something like that. When I do this, I remove the wires from the motherboard and short the two prongs where the wires were fastened. In all probability, though, you need a new power supply.

Give me the following info. and I will tell you what is the problem. I don't normally do this, but I think you suffered enough. (1) Manufacturer's or Computer's Name; (2) Model Name and Number; (3) the ID for *********** board; (4) I hate to do this to you, but I need it for our electronic troubleshooting. I have to ask what you already have written, because I can't get the idea of the original failure, during the failure and after the failure. Please remember that once you agree to whatever deal between you and I, the whole thing will have to be approved by the management of my employer. CONSTANTIN <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Hi there. Try clearing the cmos <<<<<
will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured
green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then
put it back in its original position and power up the machine again.
Hopefully the issue will have been sorted. If there is no jumper remove
the battery for an hour and make sure the power cord is removed from
the back before you clear the cmos
hi im josh! may i help you? i had the same problem of yours before but it was already resolved.i found out that the power led connection was mislocated. you can found this inside the pc.on the motherboard connection to power button.two small wires there try to check. hope i helped you.good luck.
Hi richardbyers, three short beeps means there is a problem with your memory. (Base 64K memory failure). Unplug the power from the PC. Open the case & touch the bare metal on the case to discharge your self. Remove the memory & reseat it. Leave the case opened & re-connect the power cord & try booting again. If you still hear three short beeps, shut the system down again as mentioned above. Gather some house hold alcohol & a couple cotton swabs. Drip a drop or two onto a cotton tip & wipe the memory's contacts, both sides & do not touch the contacts with your fingers during re-install or cleaning. Blow the memory slots out with canned air or use a clean paint brush. Insert the memory again & connect the power cord. Boot the PC. Try this first. If everything works out than good. If the problem does not clear its self let me know.
If your drivers are from trusted source just click ok continue when the windows signing for drivers pop up window appear.
Now if you click ok and then the system fails to load and then give you a blue error screen, its caused by either
The hardware or its drivers cause conkflict to the system, because your drivers are not from a source you can trust and they are not in compliance with windows OS features and as a result can not run in a windows OS. So get a fresh copy of the drivers from a trusted source preferably the product manufacturer
The hardware itself is faulty and on installing to XP it causes a conflict in which case you can try the Sound card on a different PC and see if it runs, otherwise you need to replace it.
(Assuming XP has finished loading the OS) Sometimes XP fails to unistall the previous drivers, if this is that case goto the device manager (windows icon >right click > properties >hardware > device manager) select ypur current sound card unistall the driver that is there and then restart your machine and load the new drivers again
