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. :(

No power to my desktop computer HP A1330N and no green light in the back of the power supply


You replaced power supply and your made sure you plugged everything back into the motherboard snuggly and in it's proper place? If so it might be your motherboard is bad.

Make sure you have the new power supply turned on. Sometimes there's a O/I switch on the back of the power supply. Flip it and try to boot and see what happens. You might have another bad power supply.
If so your motherboard might be burning them out.

Try removing the power cord for 30 seconds and press and hold the power button. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in and press the power button to see what happens.

Do your fans work when you press the power button? Do you hear any fans running?

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.

My imedia b2217 will not boot. Is the motherboard dead? Whenever I switch on the computer nothing happens. No lights, no fans, nothing at all. I have replaced the power supply but still nothing


Hi i'm Basti,

How bout the fan for your power supply, is it running? Try to retrace the cables to motherboard and make sure its tight. Change or use another power supply if possible.


Keep me posted. Hope this helps.

Compaq Presario SR2150NX doesn't turn on. Front panel green light turns on but nothing else happens (no fans, no boot, no noise, nothing) Please advice


On the back of the Power Supply there should be a Green LED, When you power it on if it is flashing, this means that the Power Supply is dead and you need to replace it.

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.
