Question about ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 - Motherboard - micro ATX - i945GC - LGA775 Socket - UDMA100, Serial ATA-300 - Eth...
I HAD JUST LOADED WIN XP ON MY PC, I TURNED OFF THE PC TO GET THE MOTHERBOARD NO. AND WHEN I WANTED TO TURN IT ON AGAIN IT WOULDN'T WORK.
THE LIGHT ON THE MOTHERBOARD IS "ON" BUT CAN'T SEEM TO GET POWER TO START.
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.
