    unseat and reseat the memory inside of the computer. If you have more then one stick of memory do one at a time in each slot at a time to see if you get video.

If you have another monitor, I would try that first.

After that, it could be the video card, so you could swap with a good one to be sure if you know how.

Last thing and probably the cause, is either a bad motherboard (most likely) or perhaps a bad cpu (less likely)

Some IT shops will let you bring it in and run some quick tests for the exact cause but my bet is the motherboard....

Hope this helps and hope I am wrong!

What happen if I put an Apple hard drive to a microsoft pc?


Disconnect all drives, all usb devices and remove all pci cards. You should have nothing connected to the system board except for the power supply, keyboard and screen.

Turn off main switch at the rear of the system and press and hold the on button on the front for about 5 seconds. This will discharge residual power in the power supply and on the system board.

Turn on the main switch at the rear and then press the on button.

Please reply with the system's behavior. You should expect the bios screen. Ignore any errors that come up at this point.

I change the power supply cause its not work and now its ok but there nothing display on the screen only the word say power seving


Assuming that you have correctly hooked up the power supply and that when you turn on the computer the power supply powers up as well as the CPU fan and the hard drive spins up, you have a video problem. While this COULD be because of a bad power supply, I think there is another hardware issue here.
You say you changed the power supply because it didn't work. I'd ask why didn't it work--did it suddenly make a popping sound or did you smell burning electronics? If so, when it failed, it may have taken part of the motherboard with it.
If you have an integrated motherboard (the video is actually part of the motherboard), then that is probably the issue here.
Just to be sure, disconnect everything BUT the CPU and memory and video. Then try to start it. If you see something on the screen (like a message telling you there is no boot device) then you can assume the hard drive or CD has gone bad. Reconnect the hard drive to see if it starts. Then the CD.
If you fail to get any image on the screen, assume that your motherboard is shot.

Dell loud fan noise


Is the computer completing post? This is indicated normally by a single beep after the power button is turned on. On most computers the beep is proceeded by a post screen with the manufactures logo. If the computer is not getting this far, unplug everything but the memory and video. This should cause the computer to give a no hard drive or OS error. If not pull all the memory, this should cause the computer to give a series of beeps (because there is no memory installed). If this does not work either, you could have a bad mother board or power supply.

Hope this helps

Voltage not going to cpu


Not sure just what you mean. If your computer is plugged into the wall and the power is turned on, the power supply should be on and the cooling fan turning. Also, the CPU fan should be turning and the hard drive should spin up.
Note that the power supply is the main component that must be supplying the power. If you don't hear or see the fan turning in the power supply and the little power light on the front of the computer does not light, replace the power supply.
If your power supply is running and nothing else is running, I would unhook all devices and leave just the CPU and video and memory in. If you get nothing, then the motherboard is probably bad.

Computer will not turn on ? checked outlets,cleaned out computer , unplugged everything nothing connected to computer


Test your power supply unit if the PSU units fans not working its faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error
hope this will help

Start wont load window, just flahing light on screen. may have got virus


Remove hard drive, find out make and model of hard drive. Go to hard drive manufacturer's website and download testing software (if you have another computer with internet access). Should be a bootable ISO file. Burn the boot cd and run it on the host computer after reinstalling the hard drive. Sounds like a bad hard drive in my opinion.

Computer turns on but does not boot windows, no bios screen


As you seem to not be a total novice with electronics, I would suggest you try unplugging everything with in the computer apart from the big plastic (Molex) connector from the power supply.

So unplug hard drive, cd/dvd drive, all pci cards, monitor and any memory.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THE PC IS OFF WHEN DOING THIS AND TURN OFF AT THE MAINS>

Turn your pc back on, you will hear a beep, nothing to worry about, its because you have nothing connected yet.

One by one start to connect the components back in the unit.

All this is doing is fault finding to see if its hardware related.

might be worth connecting your hard drive 1 at a time if you have more than 1 but the one with your operating system needs to go in first.

Add the ram 1 stick at a time aswell incase it the memory thats gone faulty.

Just remember to be careful with static if you can..


Check your graphics card aswell if you have added one:

Everything that I have read so far points to a graphics card failure..

Hard drive shuts off?? I think.


replace your power supply, you need to upgrade this to at least 500watts to avoid problem like this, there is no problem with your hard drive its your power supply
