Question about Compaq Evo D510 Minitower (Open Box) (OB4700432011) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Compaq evo 510 Won't power up.

I am getting power to the motherboard. The green lights come on, on the board. When I hit the switch it shows a light coming on when the switch is making contact. I tried a new power supply. I read another posting of similar problem. The posting was talking about a micro switch and bridging the switch. Not sure how to do that. The guy that posted that not sure if he got results. Do not have any ides if it is the board or what? I would like to keep this board.
thanks cfuller777

    mastersage it is not doing anything. I am just showing power to the board with the green lights on the board. When I first got the computer it would come on and then not come on. I kept getting intermitent starts. To get it to start I would have to unplug It for a little while then plug it back in and it would start. Now it won't do anything. thanks

I think the MB may be bad, but I saw the RAM idea and that can work but be sure its the right memory for the MB> Also make sure your ribbon is firmly set into the MB. Make sure every think is connected firmly.. Unlug every connection and replug.

Could be bad RAM modules. Try swapping out the RAM in the system with new RAM. Install one stick, in one slot. If it boots, that stick and slot are good. Try the stick in each slot to make sure all slots are ok.

Check that you hooked up all the power supply connections. Try a new motherboard battery as the old one may be dead and the bios is not working. You are evidently not getting a post beep signaling that the cpu, ram, video are good.

Could be the power supply. Try unplugging the internal hardisk power, the internal cd power and anything else that is connected internally apart from the motherboard power supply. This may reduce the load enough to allow the motherboard to be powered.
As power supplies age, internal electrolytic capacitors dry out and can no longer store sufficient charge to provide power. This usually affects the higher voltage rails more, so USB devices can still get power from the 5V rail.
Try a working power supply from another computer if you can or buy a replacement to fit your case.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?
