KingPin, is there any sign of life at all? Any lights, whiring, harddisk spinning?? Is there an LED (small light) visible on the motherboard when the power is on???
If nothing, certainly a power problem - but where. While you have the case open looking for the lit LED on the mobo, can you see any capacitors, the little cylinder-type components on the mobo circuit board that look like little batteries standing up, there'll be about half a dozen of them, that look like they may be bloated, or like a coke can left in the freezer about to explode. Do any of these capacitors look like they could be oozing goo, maybe a yellowish rusting liquid. If any do, this is not good.
If none of that applies the next step is to check your power supply. I would not suggest an amateur to do this over a step-by-step chat as it involves shorting out points and if the system is live, the wrong points shorted, well, guess you'd know what could happen (not good). The power supply is not easy to diagnos for errors, they're tricky buggers that can test well for voltage but once a load is put on them they roll over and play dead. Get an expert to test your power supply, very simple task of they plugging in a PSU tester (or borrow one, or buy one).
Please keep us informed on how you go - seriously, we grow stronger as we grow wiser when we finish a job.

Device could not start

what device? is *********** board won't start? Or a hardware doesn't start like ram or your printer
If the problem is your motherboard check all your hardwares and connectors like this:
  1. If the motherboard won't start if you click the power button check the LED(the small light bulb on your motherboard) if its glowing. If not, check the connector of your power supply or check the power supply if its working by looking its fan if revolving.
  2. If you push the button and there's a sign of power but didn't start up that will appear on your screen check the connection of your monitor screen to your desktop computer. If it's connected, remove your RAM from the motherboard and insert it to another memory slot to check if it's broken.
  3. Last, if you push the power button and here 1 short beep but the boot screen didn't appeared from your screen check your graphic card. Remove the graphic card and re-insert it again to its graphic card slot and plug in your monitor connector to it. If it still remain that way, buy a new graphic card.

Sounds like a power supply or power outlet problem.
If it's still under warrant, return the unit for repair and get it fixed.
After you get it back do not connect it directly to a power outlet.
You would like to purchase a good surge protector and connect you PC to the surge protector first.
You might have a noisy power lines, and or spikes and surges.
The surge protector will secure your PC Power Supply.
You can purchase one from

Hope this will give you some ideas.

My pc[INTEL DG43GT motherboard] doesnt start when i press the power button for the first time. It become on for few seconds and stop.If i press the power button 2nd time it runs correctly. This happens...

Your computer should be switched off at the plug only, the switch on the computer power supply can remain on. No damage will occur. This means that to turn your computer on all you need to do is plug it in, power on at the plug and then push the switch on the computer to turn it on.
I have seen this problem before, I am not sure if it the power supply that is causing this problem. I use Cooler Master they perform well and are priced right.

Best thing to do is disconnect all external devices and drives.
Reseat your memory and CPU and disconnect all power connections to the board and allow to set for a few minutes before re-connection.
If all fails try another power supply and hope the board is OK.
No the fuse in the power supply is replaceable but if gone the power supply will most likely not work or continue to blow fuses.

My pc is not turning on Asus p5vd2-mx se

what kind of computer is it? how old is it? have you added, removed or changed hardware recently? have there been any power spikes, outages or surges lately while the computer was running? lastly are the voltage settings 120V/240V on the power supply set correctly? it sounds like the power supply is dead from what i've read but i can't be sure because there are many reasons this could be happening, i.e. the processor gets too hot while the system is trying to start and the computer shuts down to prevent damage to it, also have you tried plugin the system into another wall outlet or socket on your power strip? if no hardware has been add, removed or changed. you can start with a power supply but if after that it still won't power up there's a deeper cause to look for!

hope this helps

Doesnt start anymore

ok a couple things this sounds like
1 the dual power button on back of power supply needs to be triped
2 the power supply took a dump on you need to replace power supply
if your motherboard had crashed you would have had a meltdown in tower and you would have smelled it like burnt plastic
sometimes comps require a beefier power supply and most basic comps come with twiggy kind of power supplys
depends on how many toys you have in your system and how long its being ran

Power lead

The Switch is non-powered except by the board.
Black should go to power or + side

It's like a wall switch for the light (power comes in on one side and out on the other) If it were a push in to a detent (like the Old 386's and 486's with AT power supply) to connect and a push in to release the detent it would make a difference. With these power buttons on the cases now, it doesn't.
