Hi, to bypass the start button you will need to disconnect the wires from the front of the case where they plug into the motherboard. these are usualy marked on the mother board as to which one is which. I recomend that you use a torch and read what each wire is pluged onto. Also draw a map of the sequence, color codes and position of these wires. The one marked PWR SW is what you are looking for. Bridge this with a screw driver and see if that powers up your board. If this fails then have a close look at the capacitors on the board. These are the round things that stand up from the board at several locations. If any are bulging out the top or show signs of leakage from the bottom then its time for a new mother board. Good luck, mistyman

Liebert gxt2-10000t230 low batt,bypass light flashing,no output,shutdown after a minute

Test outlet power by switching the unit to manual bypass and breakers off.
If power is supplied OK and the filter board repaired OK then restart the unit starting with the breakers supply to unit,battery confirm the display is on and static bypass led also on then switch back the bypass knob to normal and press the on button to switch the unit to normal.
Give the batteries time to charge 12hours then you can test the unit on backup mode.

Computer wont turn on after power surge

You can try to change the sockets to which it was connected, try to plug the power cord of PC to different socket on surge protector or try connecting it directly to wall jack..

My desktop dont come on

1) Check THE receptacle in the surge protector the computer is plugged into.

I have found more than once that One bad receptacle in the surge protector is bad.

"Hmmm, surge protector power on light is lit." "Monitor has power, amp for the speakers has power, and the router has power."
All plugged in to the same surge protector.

Tried a table lamp into the receptacle the computer was plugged into, Nothing.
Replace surge protector.

2) Bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

If you bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and the Power Supply comes on, the problem is a bad Power On switch.

If you bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and the Power Supply does Not come on, the problem is the Power Supply.

If you wish to know how to perform this simple test, just state so in a Comment.

Not powering on at all - I have been built a new computer from scratch with all brand new components. After hooking all of them up and plugging in the power source. Nothing is happening when the power...

1. Could be as simple as not having the Power Switch on the right jumper...double check.
2. The board will power up with nothing hooked to it... just power, CPU, MEM... disconect everything to just to get the board up to the bios.
3. Make sure PS is securly connected to the MB.
4. Check Jumper on the Board to make sure the Test Jumpers are not set
5. Memory is seated correctly... if you pull them out the board will start and beep...

Gateway yellow power button, nothing starts, no fan, nothing. opened up computer and see mobo led light is lit. newton ps has a test button. tried to test with various components plugged in and the test...

Power supply has several voltages. Just because the 5v power is active doesn't mean all the voltages are OK. You need to have the power supply tested for 12v and 3.3v. A quick test is to unplug all the wires from the power supply. There is a single green wire on the motherboard main plug. Connect (use a bent paper clip) that green switch wire and any black wire. Plug in the power supply and it should run (fan starts)

Starter relay

have you been riding in the rain? check the start button,for continuity first,before you start digging into other things,sometimes they get stuck or rusty, if you dont have cont. when you push it ,try electrical cleaner ,might help,not a good idea to try to bypass the relay,could do more damage.pull the starter and bench test it,relays seldom fail,but dont rule it out,motorcycle batteries usually only last a couple of years,maybe it died,or the connections are bad

You can test the power button. Remove the wires from the power on pins on the motherboard. Momentarily jump the two pins with a small screwdriver. If the computer starts the power button is bad. If it still doesn't start then something else is wrong. Did you test the memory? Also do all of the fans work, especially the CPU fan? It can't hurt to test with the other PSU. You know the HDD is good. Test one piece of hardware at a time and hopefully you will find the problem.

Problem with the machine.

once you have checked the door is shut properly, then i would start with the door interlock, DO NOT test by bypassing this can cause serious damage to the timer, replace if needed and work with safety unplug from power supply before removing any item taking note in detail of any wires etc
