Your power supply is bad--you will need to replace. I suggest looking at tigerdiect for a replacement.

Probably the mainboard or flaky power supply.

I'd start by replacing the power supply. Buy one you can use in a new machine, though... or "borrow" one from another machine.

Sounds like you only have power going to your motherboard.

The power supply might be bad on it, that or maybe the power cord is going bad and is only letting a small amount go through. I don't see why there should be a problem if you have even a little bit of power going though.

Make sure that the CPU fan is clean and free to turn. The main fan should have a connector with 3 wires. Two are for power and the third returns the fan revolution count. If the fan is not being seen as spinning, the system will shutdown.

Do you have an HDMI cable to hook it up to a TV with? If so, try that. If it works, try updating your graphics card (I can show you how if the cable works)

sounds like your motherboard malfunctioned. the board was probably starting to go out. thats why it would see the hdd then not.

you sound like youre familiar with computers. you may want to invest in diagnostic cards to troubleshoot problems like this. theyre fairly inexpensive on ebay. basically you insert the card into pci slot and it displays an error code. then you look up the code in a book. works like the obd2 reader for your car.

1. There is a BIOS SETUP setting to "automatically start after a power outage" -- this is useful for "servers".

2. If you press and HOLD the power-button for TEN seconds, the computer should shut itself off.

3. Turn the computer off, disconnect the "data" cable to the HDD (hard-disk-drive) and then turn the computer on. Does the HDD lamp still light-up?

4. Do you get any on-screen video when it starts to start-up?

When I push the startup button, the green light turns on the cooling fan start's just for an instent and shuts down. Even the Green light on the back of the computeris now turnes off. Any idea's to fix...


hshorty,

When you press the plastic Power On button, it in turn presses against a Power On switch.
The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button.

This is an example of a generic ATX Power On switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The switch completes a circuit.
(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch. Makes a brief contact, then opens back up)

The circuit the Power On switch completes, is the 5 Volt Standby circuit.
When a Power Supply is plugged into power, there is a constant 5 Volts (DC) present.
Closing this 5 Volt Standby circuit, momentarily 'excites' the Power Supply, and turns the Power Supply on.

Power goes to the Motherboard, and Peripherals, (Harddrive, optical drive/s, and so on)
The first chip to receive power is the BIOS chip.
(Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C. Integrated Circuit)

The BIOS program on the BIOS chip, looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, TURNS the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the O/S.
(O/S = Operating System. Windows XP is one example of an O/S)

Your Power Supply doesn't even have enough power to light those LED lights, much less turn the Processor on.

A) ALL the LED lights together, use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is. (Older Processors use less than 51 Watts)

If this problem is in reference to a Compaq Presario SR5130NX desktop computer, it comes with an Athlon 64 X2 - 3800+ Processor.

(Windsor Core. Also this Processor uses an AM2 processor socket)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01048297&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3436820

This Processor can use up to 89 Watts.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_64_microprocessors#.22Windsor.22_.28F2_.26_F3.2C_90_nm.29

Fans start to spin, and the LED power light is on for the Power Supply. When it's time to turn the Processor on, too much power is needed, and the Power Supply 'drops to it's knees'.

The Power Supply used is just a common ATX style of power supply. (Actually it is an ATX 12V 2.x)
Used in a LOT of personal computers out there, and is readily available.
It's a 300 Watt unit.

(The ATX form factor for this Power Supply, (Size and shape), is approximately 6 inches Long, 6 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall)

Power cables from the Power Supply needed are;

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable (Main power cable to motherboard)

B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, (Also known as P4)

C) At least one SATA power cable for the SATA harddrive, and additional SATA power cables, for each SATA optical drive.

(Your Presario may have come with SATA optical drive/s, or IDE {PATA} optical drive/s. Optical drive = CD/DVD drive)

D) If your Presario came with IDE, (Also known as PATA), optical drives, you'll need a standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable, for each drive.

E) The computer case fans, may each use a standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable. (The Processor fan attaches to the Motherboard)

F) The Memory Card Reader needs a Floppy Drive power cable. An auxiliary power cable.

An example of a compatible Power Supply,

Imac g5 17 gets some power but no display


Assuming you have the model with four diagnostic LEDs, the lack of LED-3 indicates that the computer and the LCD display are NOT communicating. This LED should be ON when the computer is turned on and video signal is being generated.
The first solution is to reset the PRAM (hold command-option-P-R after the boot chime until you hear another boot chime). If video does not appear, then power down the computer and reset the SMU by pressing the SMU button ONCE ONLY. (The SMU button is located just south of the fan housing and is the button further away from the fan; the other button is a power button.) If this does not fix the video, the next step is to remove the optical drive. If this does not fix the video, put everything back together and attach an external display using the dongle supplied with the unit. If the external display fails to work, you have a logic board problem; otherwise, you have an LCD panel, inverter, or cable problem.

Runs to the LED (Light Emitting Diode) labelled "power" on the front of your computer-case

Runs to the front-panel LED that lights-up whenever the Hard Disk Drive is being used.

Runs to the "reset" button on the front panel.

Very briefly touch a metal-tip screwdriver between these 2 pins.
If the computer powers-on, you've found the "power" connector.

If you hear no beeps and the led lights, and the fans stay on after striping all the components from the motherboard except for the cpu, and power supply, you have either fried your motherboard or your cpu. Its impossible to tell without more testing. I'm sorry but you either need someone to test it or you can buy a new computer (thats what I did). For about USD $300-$400 you can get a brand new computer with 500mbs of ram, 120gb hard drive and a 3 ghz cpu. If you look around you can get an even better deal.
