Power button


Well you can either buy a replacement button that will just connect to your motherboard easily. Or you can cut the wires to the button and connect them with electrical tape. But by doing that it will stay on, and I don\'t know how safe that is. Also you could cut the wires off and connect them to a switch or button that you can buy at a car shop like advanced auto parts or something. Just be careful make sure your computer is unplugged and use the same caution as you would with any electrical stuff.

When you have messed up wiring your motherboard..


it is easy...

remember this your motherboard is like a children play house red for red, square for square.. if it is not compatible for the socket it will never be placed well..

you need to connect the following..

first your main power supply to your motherboard

it is very easy to see.. it is a group of maybe 16 wires in a plastic connector..you will connect it to your motherboard..

your processor power is a four wired in plastic connector but it is square in shape..

note: take a good look in each connector they have squares cirlce, etc shapes in each wires so don't force it to connect if it is hard to it means it is not for that socket..

this is the turning point..

your power button, reset button, pw LED, HDD LED,

maybe you know where it is placed,
but note the sequence.. pw button, reset, pw led,hdd led,

if not you can try to short the pins of *********** board so that you will know where the power button will be placed...

your usb and internal speaker has their own pins....

note: take a good look to your motherboard before you connect it, it may cause you some trouble..

take a look at the + ,- signs that is encrypted in the motherboard...

you have to the red wire is fore the posite and the black is negative..

i know it is compose of four wires but they are in one socket right...

your hdd connect it i know you know that how..

that's all..

On/off button wont work cant turn on pc


Hi Sherry,

Although its possible that the on/off button is physically damaged, chances are greater that you have a power problem on your PC motherboard.
The simplest way to determine which of the two is true is to open the case up, look for the wire which runs from the on/off switch and see where it connects to the motherboard.
Once you have located this connection unplug the switch wires and, with a small screwdriver, short out the 2 pins where the on/off switch wires were connected.
Your PC should turn on. If not, you need to message me again in order for me to assist you further in diagnosing the problem.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Computer will not turrn on hp a 1230n


Hi Raul,
Try this following instruction to isolate the problem.
1. Check the power outlet/AVR if it has an output, if okay,
2. Check the wire if okay, often times, the wire is damage or open. try to use another cable.
3. If the wire is okay, try to isolate the power supply, remove the power supply connection to the board and short the color gray and green wire to see if the power supply is working, if the power supply turned on then its ok.
4. It the power supply is working, try to check the power on button, it might have a problem. to override the power on button you can short the pins inside the board where the wire from power button is connected to motherboard.

I have an emachines desktop computer and some how 2 little thin wires came out from the button where you turn on the computer. I am not sure where those wires go but aparently they are really important...


The power button connects onto the motherboard with a jumper. One end of those cables probably go to the button the other end should connect to the motherboard where it says pwr with a few little pins.

When I push the powerbutton my PC doesn't start. This while I've connected the powercable etc. The powerled on the motherboard is glowing. What could be the problem?


This could possibly be due to the wiring of the button itself. If you consider yourself to be even remotely tech sauvy, try this.

  1. Remove the side panels. This should be fairly simple to do.
  2. Locate 2 wires connected to the button. These will probably be thin red and black wires.
  3. GENTLY check to make sure if they are both connected to the button.
  4. If not, you will have to soder it back on.
Hope this helped! Tell me how it worked out!

I press the power button at the front of the tower and it doesn't activate the PC power.


The most common reasons for this are: 1. Switch failure (the button is broken) 2. Power Supply not working
If you can go inside the case of your PC (if confident that you won't mess up with any other thing).
First of all remove all power cords (even the monitor's wire) open up your case again if confident but its better if you get it checked by a technician. By the way to check the switch the method is given below (i expect that you have a reset button)
There must be a wire on which PWR would be written it will be directly connected to the mother board. To get to it look for the button inside the case and follow the wire, when you find the wire carefully take it out and carefully search for the wire of the reset button and connect the reset wire in the place where the power wire was connected.
Plug in all the wires back again cautiously and then press the reset button and check whether now it turns on or not.
If the above method works it means you have a faulty power button and if not then you have either a power supply problem or In some extreme cases the mother board can be burnt.

Restart button in the cpu is not working


I suggest that you will open the cpu and look for wire that will connect from the restart button to the motherboard. If you have set up manual of the mother board, just follow color code of the wire that will be plugged in to motherboard. ASUS and other motherboards have connection of the wires located below the circuit board just in line with the tiny colored wires entwined by pairs.

T6410 EMACHINE TRYING TO CONNECT START BUTTON


The motherboard in your computer is an MSI MS-7145, which is also called RS480M. You can download a copy of the manual here. The front panel connections are on page 2-20.

Looking at the header JFP1, pins 1 through 9 (odd numbers) are the front row, pins 2 through 10 are the back. Pin 10 is the missing pin. The power switch connects to pins 6 and 8. The power LED connects to pins 2 and 4. The HDD LED connects to pins 1 and 3. The reset button, if used, connects to pins 5 and 7.
