Board : Intel dg31gl My motherboard led is glowing but it won't starting when I press power button


Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/f/powersupplytest.htm WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes. If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hope this helps.

The computer wont start up, i can see a green light on the motherboard and nothing else. even the power button wont show up led light.


This can be a power supply problem or a motherboard problem.
One or the other has probably gone bad and must be replaced, if this is what happened.
Start by disconnecting all things from the motherboard except the CPU and memory.
If the system starts, then you've ruled out the power supply, CPU, motherboard, and memory.
If not, remove the memory and see if it tries to start. If so, then the problem is the memory.
If not, then it's definitely the power supply, CPU, or motherboard.

Hi! I have a pc with abit is7-e2 motherboard.. And when i start the pc a red led turns on the board... There is no picture on the screen. I already checked the video card but its working


Just how did you check the video card if you get no image on the screen?
Try another monitor with your computer. If you still get no image, then it's your video card or another component.
If your computer will not pass the POST (power on self test) then you will not get any video output.
Culprits can be the hard drive, the CD, the memory, the motherboard, or the CPU. I would disconnect everything but the CPU, memory, and video and try to start it to narrow the problem. But first, try another monitor.
I've even seen a bad power supply that seems to work keep the video from working.

System not booting, k8n


Have you tried resetting the bios? turn off the computer and remove the power cable connected to the power ATX power supply, look for the "clr_cmos" jumper and change the settings from 1-2 to 2-3 for approx. 10 secs, then return the jumpers to original settings and reconnnect the power cable and turn on the computer. This was the solution when i had the same problem before. Hope this helps you too.

Computer can't boost up


There are a host of things that could cause this. The first thing to check is to mak sure you have the proper memory setup for your motherboard. Often these days you need to install memory in pairs for the board to boot. Refer to your motherboard manual and make sure the memory you have installed is right fro your board and that you have it installed in the right slots. If you do and it still doesn't work, please reply with your motherboard, CPU and memory specifications so I can look into this further.

Go to the Asus website and download the drivers for this board. It's most likely that it did not come with drivers installed. Hopefully this will fix the problem. Good luck.

You can try resetting the cmos/bios by unplugging the power cord. Open the case. Find the battery mounted on the board. Use a flat tip screw driver & lift out the battery. (About the size of a quarter). Wait about 15 seconds & pop the battery back onto the board. Plug you're power cord back in & power on the PC. If the system still does not boot, re-check all data & power connections for solid connection. Remove you're memory & firmely reseat. Try again. Still no? Replace power supply.
If the system still does not start & or gives no beeps, no LED lights & no fans power up. Than you're board is most likely dead. (So hate giving out bad news)
