Shut it off


Explanation sounds like motherboard or SMPS problem.

Try removing all your cables from motherboard including hard drive and other cables. Make sure to note down the power button placement on mother to later set it up the same way. Also need to test motherboard

Unscrew your motherboard from the cabinet and tilt you cabinet, place some plastic or wooden peice on cabinet and put your motherboard over it. Connect VGA Cable & Keyboard to motherboard. Now connect the power cable to mother board. Looks like one in image and try powering on by connecting only powerbutton cables. See it allows you to on CMOS setup. If it does, try connecting hard drive cables and try booting up. If doesnt work, finally hope my recommendation might be of some information

Recommendation
Replacing either would be less costly then getting complete new computer. You already have rest of things just get a good & latest package of CPU and Motherboard.

I have a dell inspiron 1100 approx 7 yrs old. Try to start up, no display. LCD for power and battery (ac power) light up, no hard drive light. Reseated everything, still nothing. Also shuts itself down...


Hi,


Since there is no hard drive light, you could try unplugging it first, and try to boot and see if there would be any display on the LCD. If yes, you already isolated the problem that it is the Hard drive causing the " no display".

Try to do also the following: (draining flea power)

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

Hope to hear from you soon.

Computer wont start(Plz Help me ) Added Much Detail as possiable


start by removing everything, ram, any cards plugged in, drives etc. Then try and boot it. If the issue is still present, shut it down and remove the heatsink and cpu. I have known CPU's to be jolted out of their sockets after an impact. Take the heatsink off, lift the lever and remove the cpu. Check that all the pins are still aligned and straighten any bent pins then refit the cpu and lock the lever down. Refit the heatsink making sure that the heat transfer pad or heatsink paste is still present and lock it down. Plug the power cords and front panel wiring back in and try and boot it. If it boots, shut down and refit each item you removed one at a time, booting in between each item. If the issue arises again, the last item you fitted is the culprit. If you can refit everything and boot the system up, lady luck is with you. If you still cannot get it to boot after refitting the cpu, replace the mainboard. Sorry but without special gear, locating a fault like this on a mainboard is a real pain..

How to replace hard drive


Hi tstafford,

Before you begin any removal or installation procedures:
1. Shut down the notebook. If you are unsure whether the
notebook is off or in hibernation, turn the computer on,
and then shut it down through the operating system.
2. Disconnect all external devices connected to the notebook.
3. Disconnect the power cord.
4. Remove the battery pack by following these steps:
a. Turn the notebook upside down with the front toward you.
b. Slide and hold the battery release latch 1 to the left.
(The front edge of the battery pack disengages from the
notebook.)
c. Lift the front edge of the battery pack 2 and swing
it back.
d. Remove the battery pack.
NOTE:
Reverse the above procedure to install the battery pack.

5. Loosen the two PM2.0×6.0 captive screws 1 that secure the hard drive cover to the notebook.

Hi all was ok in till i removed my hard drie affter i shut down the system and turn it off i removedthe hard drive now system will not boot back up it will power on but wont boot up ive unpluged everything...


hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? friend try to do this things. first i suggest to change new ide or sata cable.if still persist.try the following:
Boot order: Traditionally, a computer is set to boot first from the floppy drive, and then from the main hard drive (Drive C). This means that the computer will check the floppy drive first for boot files. If there is no disk in the floppy drive, the computer will then go to the hard drive to look for boot files. That is why if you leave a non-bootable floppy disk in the drive and try to boot up, you'll get an error message such as "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart." or "Non-system disk or disk error." This can be changed to pretty much any order, including CD and DVD drives. It is useful when installing Windows on a new or just-formatted computer to set the computer to boot first from a CD-ROM drive, and then insert the Windows installation CD-ROM into that drive. This saves you from having to use boot floppies that might or might not come with the Windows CD-ROM. Good luck.

Cracking noise


Hi terry44,
Try this first. Open the case. Please ground your self by touching any metal surface. Than place your hand on the hard disk drive. Do not hold the underside. Start the PC & continue to hold & listen. You mentioned the system runs for a short time, let’s see if it will crack & shut down while you’re touching the drive.
We want to see if the system still shuts down & you hear that crack. If it’s the hard disk drive you will feel it as well as hear it.
If you feel like the crack came from the hard disk drive than replace the drive because its going to die. Your thoughts about the board could be correct. With the case opened you should be able to pin down where the crack is coming from.

Let me know if this helped & what you found.
Get back to me.
Good Luck!

Update on Boot up problem with Versa P600


I have had this problem many many times at the Lab over the years, in fact I have even owned a PC that did exactly as you describe! ... What I found out was... SOME hard Drives seem to work OK, others??? It seems to be a "Timing" issue with the Hard Disk Controller.. There is NO FIX as such.. that I have ever found, Sometimes ya can find a brand of Drive that will work with.. ALWAYS.. but for the most part.. it's either put up with it.. OR get a new motherboard/PC. I have torn my hair out more than once as I said.. But essentially it is a Motherboard fault, specifically, the Hard Drive Controller, thats is at fault..
