No power up.

I recently bought a PC that was working fine, on moving it to a new location it did not power up. On inspection the power leads from the switch are off the motherboard. The loose wires are labelled. Power, Power LED, Reset SW and HDD LED. Need to know the correct pattern for refitting theses cables if you could many thanks. Frontman

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards

If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps.

Remove all new memory you've added to the computer.

If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it.

Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer cleaning the gold coloured tabs with alcohol and then placing them back into the computer.

Remove the memory modules from their slots.

Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.

Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.

Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.

Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r

Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty

if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free

restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

hope this helps

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be

even something as small as a faulty power lead or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly

make sure ram modules and cmos batteries have dust free secure seatings and cmos battery has charge some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all power an data leads make sure they have dust free secure connections

cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

hope this helps

This could be a power supply fault,check the volts on the red,yellow and earth lead(black)THE RED LEAD =5VOLTS
Diconnect the pc mains plug from the computer.
Disconnect the power supply leads from the motherboard,and switch on and check the volts on all leads of all those I mentioned.If these are present when they are not connected to the main board,then the problem is with the motherborad,most likely the bios chip is faulty.This chip kicks starts the PC into coming on.Failing this send the PC back to where you bought it and let them fix it.

Motherboard won't boot: no noise, no nothing...

Shorting the two leads will work but don't keep the two wires together. They are not ment to stay connected. Consider replacing your cases ATX power switch. Take a look at the link provided for a new switch;

The green LED on the motherboard means the board is in "Stand by mode". This green LED uses 5V DC to light the LED. After replacing your PS back into your system it may function just fine.

Good luck.

Buzzer sound from intel d101ggc motherboard

Check the fans in your pc, it sounds like at least one of them isent working properly and your pc gets overheated. When a pc going to warm it gets really slow and hangs.
My guess is that the CPU-fan dosent work properly and your CPU gets overheated, but check all the fans to be sure. The CPU fan runs cantantly, check so it dosent stop now and then.

Good luck

Asus a8v-vm se fans always run

Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.
