Hi im josh in cebu phils. friend may i help you. i had encountered a lot of this problem.then i found out that it was a motherboard problem and a supply problem. all you have to do first is check the connections of your supply to the mainboard.check if two pwer cables are connected. 2nd remove the extra devices such as sound card or cd room to check weather your supply has enough powe to make you mainboard and hdd work. if still the same check your motherboard manuals for power rating needed and if the pwer suppluy passed and still not work.replace now your mainboard with the new one.because it is now the problem.good luck bro.hopei helped pls,so that i'll know if i helped you so.thnks

Always shutdown"CPU Shutdown Temperature

Hello download a manual here:

Check the bios for any cpu overclocking settings
and set it back to standard settings.
Renew also the thermal cooling paste between the cpu and the cooling fan.
See if the cpu fan is running when the pc starts.

Be VERY carefull when you remove the cpu cooling fan
and take care not to damage the cpu.
And take antistatic precautions when you work on the mainboard.

If you have not tryed this before let a expert do the job.

Hope this will help you

My neighbor has a emachine W5243.It will not power on, no led light,keyboard and optical mouse have no light,nothing on monitor.When you plug in the power cord,the power supply fan runs quietly and the cpu...

I work on computers everyday and it sounds like the power supply. Do you have access to a tester? If not just take out the power supply and run it up to a shop, I'm sure they'd be glad to test it free of charge. Hope this helps. Lets hope it's the PSU, it's the cheapest to replace!

In my monitor there no display & motherbord processor sometimes cannot run ???????????

Please check the following:
1. Is the Power supply fan working when you turn on the PC?
If yes - you have to replace your motherboard
If no - then you have to find another power supply unit

2. Are you referring to the CPU fan?
If yes - normally it happens if the power supply is defective
alternative: Try to check if there CPU connector is properly connected on the motherboard

Thanks. Cheers!

Motherboard won't fire up processor fan starts then stops. new power supply, new CPU. No change. Home built computer. Stripped memory, circuit boards,drives except floppy. Reset cmos. No change.

even though its new could still be bad processor, power supply, or the motherboard its self.try to jump it without the power connected. should be pin 4 and 6. double check that though in your manual.jump it with a wire but dont touch any other pins or you will fry the MB.

Hp Pavilion 763n won't startup light on fan on cpu not running

The most common issue is a portion of the power supply has gone bad (power supplies provide +5, +12, -5, and -12 vdc). Otherwise, the motherboard may need replacing. Try finding a spare power supply from a friend and hook it up to see if everything runs fine before purchasing one (about $40-50). If the power supply doesn't fix it, it could be the CPU (although I believe the CPU fan would still run) or any portion of the motherboard.

Power turns on and off

Sounds like a thermal issue. New power supply might be overheating the cpu causing the thermal sensor in the cpu to automatically shut down so the cpu doesn't fry. You could try adding a case fan or two plus upgrading the spu heatsink/fan. Hope this helps.

Cpu fan wont come on after new power supply put in

what made you change the power supply to begin with? Most cpu fans run off the motherboard, but the motherboard initially gets all voltages from the Power supply to begin wth. Did you assume that because cpu fan wasn't running to begin with, that the original power supply was bad. Not a bad assumption but one that needed verification before changing out a power supply. So it seems at this point that you have an unverified bad power supply, a possible bad motherboard, and a known good cpu fan. Plus at ths point you really don't know of the new power supply is good yet until you see something electrical run with it.
