I shut down my Dell Dimension E510 last night and today when I pressed the on button, the computer wont turn on - not even an orange light on the power button. I tried disconnecting all connected...


Try this procedure! click here. After checking your power supply and it is working fine, put it back again into your computer casing. Next thing to do is to check your motherboard switch (power on). Look for the manual of your motherboard and look for the power on switch. If you find it then get a screw driver and short the pin using the screw driver. Be careful not to touch the other pin! But you have to check all the computer components to determine what is exactly the cause why it's not functioning. If it's not turning on your computer while you short the power switch on that means probably your motherboard fail. Other option is, in order to troubleshoot the problem of your computer you must have an extra computer with the same model and plug all your components there one by one to determine what is exactly the problem of your computer. Then you can decide what computer parts need to be replace. Have a nice day!

Aspire m-5620 desktop shut down wont power up


Try opening the computers case and resetting the BIOS Battery
Now BEFORE you open the computer do the following:-
(1 Unplug the computer from ALL conections (2 Touch the metal case on the computer to get rid of any static electricity. Static + Computer = Dead Computer so be sure not 2 have static electricity when operating on computer.
Now we may begin!
Now once you open your computer find some thing called the BIOS Battery. Now it's a CR2032 Battery which is the type people use in tamagotchis and pocket LED lights. It will be silver and round and about the size of a camera lens. Now find a clip or something holding it in place. Push that clip and the battery will pop out. AVoid touching the motherboard witch is the big board that the BIOS Battery is on. It wont damage anything by touching it by just try not to.
Now wait about an hour.
Once youve waited around an hour put the BIOS Battery back in. Switch on your computer and hey presto we have bootup. Now your computer will say something like press F2 to setup BIOS or Press Escape to run deafult settings. Just stick with the deafult settings.

Two months old dead no power


Hi there,

Check the Power cable of your PC for any damaged or burn/cut. Firmly check the connection on the slot of the CPU Power Supply,

Check the Electrical outlet , or better plug the cord on a different electrical outlet.

If all of this has nothing to do and the problem was still there, possible problem on the powersupply are, it is advisable that you have to replace this part, a possible burnt or a short circuit has happen inside, due to some electrical malfunction on your area.

HOpe this helps.

Let me know for any clarification

Might be stuck in hibernation. Pull the battery and ac power for about 1 hour. Replace and try to boot. If fails, pull the battery and try to boot just off ac power.

My PC won't power on.


First, check all connections insid the computer. then,depending on your skill level and warranty status, you can try the following:
Remove or disconnect all accessories from the pc (Hard drive, floppy, cd/dvd roms and accessory cards) Then see if it will turn on. If yes, the replace the items one by one unrtil it fails.
If no, then you must either try a different (known good) power supply on your motherboard. (you can also see if your power supply powers a known good motherboard).
If not, the you motherboard is likey faulty.

No power


1. Please check with the power supply of pc from a/c plug. 2. if power supply is ok then ensure that the input poewer cord is at right position in behind of cpu. 3. If you are using old type power supply (which do not autumatically turned off by operating system) then there is problem with power switch or SMPS. 4. If you are using advance power management (generally used in now-a days computers which is automatically turned off by O.S., then there may be a problem with power pin that is connecting thae mother board and power button. Shut down your computer and open the cpu chasis and tighten the pin and ensure that it is properly inserted (the location of the pin is near hard disk lid pin, power lid pin). 5. If this pin is ok then check with pconnecting wire of pin and power button and also the power button. 6.Then turn the computer on. If it does not work then check the power connectors from SMPS to mother board are properly installed and inserted. 7. If power connector is ok then there is posssiblity of problem with your SMPS (power supply) of computer. 8.Generally due to heavy load of power and long usage the condensers of smps get mailfunctioned. Take the smps or computer to a local hardware expert.
