Re: cpu turns on but nothing else does.
Well, when my emachine did this, I was informed the "power toggle" was "gone" and that basically it would cost more to fix than to replace. I suggest you have this looked at as I suspect you will be given similar information. Wish I had better news. Good Luck!

hi your cpu fan might be loose or your RAM open pc and make sure cpu fan is secure if its loose a little tighen it or your RAM might have popped out it can get very hot around RAM and sometimes it pops out ...hope this helps be carefull...bonnell
sounds like the cpu is dead, if your fan was full of dust theres a high chance it wasnt working properly for a while which would of caused the cpu to fry from lack of proper cooling and also the dust in the vents would have prevented heat from escapeing so its highly probable that the cpu is dead try replaceing it, i cannot gaurentee that anything else internally got fried from the heat tho, i had a similar problem a week ago
First make sure the monitor is on and connected to the PC. If the power light is not on you could have a bad power supply, it could also be that the onboard video went bad. If your PC has four trouble lights in the back, let us know which ones are lit, this can pinpoint the problem. The noise you hear is the drive spinning up and the CPU fan. Good Luck.
try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.
give me more info
Try cleaning out the PC. Clean the CPU fan, remove all dust build up within the case. Canned air helps a lot. Blow out the power supply too. When you are able to power up the PC, do you see the case LED's light up / flashing?
I'm keeping in mind that when you loose the video display you also loose the use of the PS2 keyboard & PS2 mouse. If the CPU is over heating the system will shut down the PC.
If you're system is still under warranty, please call Fujitsu. http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/home/products/personal_computers/scaleo_p.html
You may need a new power supply, CPU or board. Sorry!
Dear javier4017, > First ensure that any beep is coming or not > check numlock LED status glowing or not. > If numlock LED glowing it means cpu working fine only problems with monitor >If numlock LED not glowing its mean problems with cpu > if problems with CPU Find check RAM may have dusting problems.
