Question about Okia 420w UL Approved ATX Computer Power supply (OKIA420ATX) Power Supply

1 Answer

Friends custom-build PC has no power

Working on a fiends custom-build PC that doesn't have any power. No fans,no lights,no noise...nothing.

I tried the Okia 420W PSU in another PC and works fine. Bypassed the on/off switch still no power. Is the Asrock k7vm3 mobo the problem or something I'm missing here?

Thanks in advance...

    Bingo! Took mobo out of case and it came to life. Put it back in case and started adding hardware one by one then testing to see if still had power and problem occurred once front USBs were added. Thanks again...

Seems reasonable. Take the motherboard out of the case,  first to see if it will work outside of the case. Sometimes boards short to the ground due to a screw or other metal getting between them and the case. Try to run it with as little hardware hooked up as possible. You don't even need a hard drive to post the BIOS.

have a look on the bottom of the case for access panels, remove these and check the fans for dust build up, even if the dust doesn't look too bad, its worth cleaning. Also try to remove the fan to check between that and the heatsink, dust can build up there very much. This could cause the fan to be innefficient so could be an overheating problem causing your shutdown.

Very soft ticking noise from the power supply fan


There may be some build up on the fan blades that the compressed air could not free. try using a Q-tip to clean anything stuck on the blades.

ATX power on Motherboard not working


Just to check the voltages coming from the psu. However if your old psu is doing the same it must be something else. Did you try it without the graphics card? and is it the fan in teh psu which is spinning up?

My next port of call would be any other expansion cards, followed by the memory modules. Take them all out apart from one memory module and try to boot.

Also check that the pins from the power button are connected correctly. you can also try starting the pc by touching the two pins together with a metal tipped screw driver.
