Similar "No Power" problem

I tried the solutions suggested in the other problem like this, and put in the washers for the scews (I did take time to feel ashamed of myself for forgetting that) and checked for any other contact, and there was none. So I hit the buttion, thinking it would work and got squat. Any suggestions anyone?

Re: Similar "No Power" problem

You're not giving us enough to go on. "The other problem like this" is not listed here, so we can't refer to it. Is the power button connected properly? One way to check is to remove the board completely, connect the power supply and short the power pins. This will tell you if the board and power supply are working.

My pc automatically get start on plug on .and then it suggest me to press F1 to Continue. when I do this it takes incorrect date and time how to restrict it.I want to start it with start button on cabinet

There can be many reasons...
  • Your BIOS setting is not correct.
  • CMOS battery is down(Most probably).
  • both
You can open the BIOS setting page by pressing keys like DEL, F10, etc. depending on your system's manufacturer at computer startup(post screen). There are lots of wakeup options check them properly.
One of the option is "Restore last state of power Button on failure" which can turn on your computer without touching the power button. you should check these options.

And it suggest you to press F1 because your system's date/time is not configured properly. You can also set Time/date in BIOS also.
If your BIOS Battery(CMOS) is not weak or dead then after setting these values your computer should start properly.
And if your BIOS battery is dead then all the settings will be lost(date/time etc) after a restart and you will face same problem again...

Try changing the Power-button option and Date/Time in BIOS and see if problem persist....if yes then you have to change COMS battery that is on your Motherboard.

Computer Case ULT33180 Powers down about 4 seconds after started

Ive done something similar, I took the CMOS battery off the motherboard and put it back in after about a minute to reset the bios. Unplugged the power supply from the motherboard and flipped the power switch on the back of the power supply (on and off a few times) and plugged the power connector back onto the motherboard. I know it sounds like an odd way of fixing this problem but has worked for me.

Missing Scews

Not knowing which screws and the length and thread etc. it's hard to offer you replacements. be that as it may either take the laptop to a computer shop or remove some remaining screws and take them to the shop and see if they can offer you replacements.... even a hardware store will do. be careful to get the right length and thread. if the screw goes in but suddenly tightens before it's all the way in... find a shorter one. an alternate suggestion would be to contact Siemens and explain your problem, they are likely to just send you some.

Apple g4 digital audio Power supply API-9841

Solution: Replace power supply with a new one. Anything else might cause equipment damage, personal injury or death.

Any attempt for component level repair is not for the novice tinkerer. remember, opening the power supply might kill you.

My suggestion is to have the failed power supply module replaced with a brand new supply by a qualified repair technician.

Flashing Lights when powered down

The flashing LED is because your system is in "sleep" mode. By default windows Vista puts your computer in sleep. What this means is it doesn't shutdown the power completely it leaves a little going through certain computer components (more specifically the ram) to speed up the boot time when the power button is pressed again.

In XP a the default shutdown scheme is a complete shutdown where power is turned off after the shutdown process is done. If you are using XP you are putting your computer to sleep when shutting down.

As for the boot problem. Newer motherboards have an LED on the actual board to indicate that it is receiving power. If it is of either the power supply switch (at the back of the case) if off or the motherboard connection is loose and the shaking makes it fall into place. (Shaking is usually not necessary and indicates a problem...)

There are a few possibilities I can deduct from your description:
  • the connection from your power supply to your motherboard isn't properly seated and is causing this
  • the power supply switch (not the case switch) is being  turned off and results in the computer taking a few seconds before the internal LED become solid
  • ... the dreaded sign that the power supply is failing and is on it's last legs...
My suggestion is to check all connections and if that doesn't work borrow a power supply from a friend and swap them to see if it boots properly.

(If a friends with a spare power supply isn't an option a local PC repair shop should be able to help you out... but probably for a fee...)

Raidmax Scorpio ATX Mid-Tower Case

The on/off connector is the power labelled one. The one thing you may have to do is (if you have'nt already)connect the power connector from the PSU to the processor power supply, close by to it as it may not just run off the motherboard ZIF socket for it's power up.

Continuation to 'help no power' question?

It's not a short in that sense. It's just preventing thee motherboard from starting. I had the same issue a long time ago when building a pc. Once it's seated properly, it should turn on...unless like I said previously, there is something wrong with motherboard all together.
