Re: No power

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

Intel D946GZIS machine will not start after being reassembled. The green light on the Motherboard is on but after hitting the power button nothing happens

It is more than likely the power supply that is faulty. Newer PSU's have a 5volt supply missing, this means that some older boards will not run with the new PSU's. Try and find an exact match for your older supply but with a better power rating, if that is what is required.

Green power. HELP!

This could be a problem with your power supply. If the motherboard sees that the voltages from your power supply are low, it will turn itself back off.

You can test your power supply by unplugging all of your internal power cables, ground out the green wire on the 20-pin/24-pin ATX connector and check your yellow (12v), red (5v) and orange (3.3v) wires. If the voltages come back more than 10-15% off, you will most likely need a new power supply.
Even if you have good voltages using the test method above, it is only an indication that your voltages are good at zero load. Your power supply may still fail under normal load. If you have recently added any hardware to your computer, remove it and try again. If this still doesn't work or you haven't added any hardware recently, replace your power supply.

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...

No Power

Check rating of power supply and make sure this is meeting the specifications of the motherboard. Check memory compatibility. This can play some serious tricks. Unplug motherboard and try powering up power supply by itself. Possibly you are short of power, a faulty supply or faulty motherboard. Wiring is normally pretty straightforward and connectors have guiding features to avoid erroneous assembly.

Power LED on but no boot up

it could be your power switch, veriy that it isnt the power supply by

1.) un-plug it from the main board
2.) look at the main board connector(one coming of the power supply)
3.) you should see green wire and next to it a black one
4.) using a paper clip bridge the too wires
5.) if it works proceed to net step if not get a new power supply

to check case switch and board switch

1.) plug in power supply to main board
2.) look at the pins where the power button connects to
3.) using a metal object (blade screw driver) bridge the pins

if the board should start up>
then its your power button on the case that is bad, you can try to repair it, chage it or buy a new case,

if it doesnt work.
1.) ensure that jcms(jumper to flash the bios) is set correctly
2.) unjack each drive one at a time to see if any is causing stalling
3.) get a new main board

No Power up on depressing On/Off button.

Sometimes if the CPU is overheatign it will power down to stop the cpu from buring out. A power suppluy just supplies power to the motherboard and that's it. If the CPU gets hot it shuts down and wont start till it cools down again.
