The motherboard is probably bad. Do you get any led's or any signs of life?

What else have you tried so far?

    Have you tried resetting the bios? Or taking the cmos battery out for a few minutes?

    If you have a video card, try reseating that as well.

    If not, it's probably a bad mobo. :(

How do I know if the power supply is bad on gateway gt5676 computer? I push power button and nothing happens. I unplug it and the green light flashes on the power supply( Bestec ATX 300 12 EB3). Plug it...


u can buy power supply testers, just a device you plug the power supply into, or try a new power supply. but if nothing is happening no fans etc theres a good chance its just the power supply.

What is most likely the problem when I push power button and I get nothing, no response at all, Power supply or Mobo ?


First of all, I'm assuming that you've connected everything correctly. I would think if absolutely nothing happens, it's probably the power supply. If a motherboard is bad, the power supply will still flip on, you'll hear the fan, and then nothing will happen. So your best bet for fixing this is replacing the power supply. Possibly with one that has a higher wattage.

Nothing happens when push start button. power cord etc good ??? is this a power unit failure?


make sure the outlet is recieving power

unplug the tower from the outlet & then replug it in & see what happens

make sure all cords are plugged in correctly in the back of the tower

then if nothing happens after you push the start button, power supply & cord could be bad

the same thing happened to my daughter's pc & had to replace power supply & shorted out the motherboard

I have an Intel D865GBF motherboard in my PC, which stopped working. I replaced the power supply because there was no power to the board. Now I have power, but when I hit the power button nothing happens.


The exact same thing happened to my D815EAA2. In my case an overheating power supply destroyed the board. Do the following:

1. Check the power supply you replaced it with works on another system.
2. If it still doesn't work with your board, the board will need to be replaced.

Emachine T3624 will not power up


Emachines are notorious for having faulty power supplies. If your lucky you just need to replace the power supply. I've seen a lot of them where the power supply also fried the motherboard.

Please don't forget to rate this solution.

Turn power off and unplug power from computer.
Unplug printers,backup drives and speakers.
Open case and unplug power supply from the board.
plug power cord back in press the power button.
Of course nothing will happen.
unplug power cord again.
plug power supply back into the board.
plug power cord backup and press power switch.
If nothing happens unplug power cord again.
pull out your memory sticks and plug cord back in and press power button.
Of course not much will happen.
But really something is happening to your computer so continue.
Pull power cord and replace memory sticks.
replace power cord and press power switch.
Continue this pulling out pci cards one at a time until you find out what the problem might be.
Try different keyboards and mice too.
Good Luck
