First, check if the connection from the power supply to the motherboard is properly inserted. If it's loose, that may be whats causing you to receive no power from the supply. Check the wall socket to make sure it works, as well as checking if everything is plugged in properly. If you are still getting no power, then it maybe time to buy a new power supply. If there is some indicator of power to the mother board , such as an LED or light that turns on when plugged in, there may be a problem with your power switch.
When a motherboard does not beep that isnt good news and its either the Motherboard or CPU.
Have you fot the FSB settings correct on the board?
Is your power Supply Good?
Does your graphics card need power and is it plugged in?
Unfortunately the only way to findout exactly is at fault is through a process of elimination.
Can you try a different power supply first?
Also try removing the CPU and re-seating it.
If not, then you need to try and get hold of another motherboard and see if everything works in that. If not then it could be the CPU.
Diagnosing CPU or MOTHERBOARD is always tricky without spares.
All I read properly .Please remove power supply from HDD and CD /DVD RW. If you face the same problem Open the mother board on a open place and try it again ,because there are some particles witch has made the short sercit in your M. Board.Cgeack all voldage socket plkaced properly,MAY BE CAN SILLY MISTAKE FOR 4 pin socket .
If you face same problem please install in another mother board .Post me please imediate next result.
I would disconnect everything. To the motherboard I would connect the power supply , one stick of ram , video card if there is not video intergrated on the motherboard already. Leave the cpu fan plugged in of course. Leave the power on button connected, disconnected all usb, audio, everything. Remember what you disconnected and where so you can reconnect later. After all this , see if you can get BIOS. If that didn't work I would switch the stick of ram out try again.
Have you checked the power supply in different system? If yes then first replace CMOS battery and switch the CMOS battery jumper. And while doing this please unplug the hard disk or optical drive data cables and power. If it does not work then check the power switch is working or not or it is perfectly connected with the front panel PINS on the motherboard. If it is not connected perfectly computer will not start after pressing power button.
Second Level Test : Remove the CPU Fan - replace the CPU perfectly - again place the Fan.
Third Level (motherboard test): Just take the motherboard removing CPU,RAM, SMPS - use another same type CPU, RAM and SMPS - if it does not work so it is motherboard problem. If it works may be CPU problem.
it could be two reasons.
1. your RAM has a issue ( try a different ram from a friends pc)
2. your Graphics card is having an issue. ( try removing & fixing back on, if it does notwork.. either get a friends graphics card & ifix on to your pc & chk or fix your VGA card on to another PC & chk if the VGA card works. either way you will find out what wrong.
CHECK ALL JUMPER ON THE BOARD AND MAKE SURE THE BOIS RESET JUMPER IS ON JUMPER 1-2, SOUND LIKE A POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM NOT ENOUGH WATT TO RUN THE SYSTEM
2ND OPTION, REMOVE ALL WIRE AND ADDTIONAL CARDS, MIN. MEMORY, LEAVING 1 STICK OF RAM, VEDOI CONNECTION , AND THE POWER TO THE BOARD, CONNECT ONE WIRE AT A TIME AND RESTARTING THE MACHINE EVERY TIME UNTIL YOU FIND THE PROBLEM.
if you don't here ok beep or any error beep:
First check out speaker is connected properly to motherboard.
Remove all component from motherboard like HDD,FDD, RAM etc..
Just put only processor to your board and power-up
There must be a long beep for missing RAM, if not means you have problem in Motherboard or CPU. Try out another board and another CPU to find out which one is faulty.
If you got missing RAM beep, then power-off and add RAM. Then power-up there must be ok beep (only one beep) or missing RAM beep. If missing RAM beep, then your RAM might be faulty try to clean the connection point with pencil earaser and try out again. If no success then try with another RAM.
I think this will help you. Please post your feed-back. Or ask me if any question.....
First test the MB with only the minimal components (ie. cpu + ram + vga card if not onboard). Disconnect all other components. If still not starting, try using just a single ram module, if you have more than one, to try & determine if one of them is faulty.
