Scaleo P Does not Start up, No Fan, No Boot Up Nothing at All

My broter recently replaced the graphics card and mother board on my pc and it worked perfectly. I then simply moved it upstairs to my son's room and now it does not start all. All is does is when you insert the cable into the back and turn the on/off switch on the back on the mother board light flashes and then goes out and the green light on the front of the pc stays on for about 20 seconds. The power button at the front of the pc does nothing at all. Please help in very simple terms. Desperate, as need this pc up and working for my son's school work. NB Have a had a look at the inside of the pc and everything looks plugged in ok.

    Thank you so much for the advice. Sorry but I really need it in simpler terms. Have got as far as checking everything is seated down, presuming you mean everything is pushed in properly on the motherboard etc. I presume that I have a power supply going in as lights do come on just nothing happens.

    How do I cable off the CDRom drive and other hard ware to see if any point it starts. Sorry but never done this before and can I damage the mother board by doing any of this.

    If PSU has died can it be fixed and are replacements expensive. Do they die just by being moved?

    Sos but am really trying to learn.

    Fan does not spin at all. Monitor cable is completely removed now as have taken pc down stairs to work on.

    Sos but must be really stupid as don't understand the rest of your message. Can you be more precise - what connector end are you referring to and where is it.

Something is shorted or PSU has failed

make sure cards are seated down (with power cord out)

if not next step is cord out an remove power and cable off the CDROM drive

try it, just go through all hardware till it starts
to determin what failed, if still same no boot then PSU has died

Wires off graphics card into mother board?

The computer won't boot if there is no graphic present. If you did hook it up right and there is a fan on the graphics card, it should be turning.

Does not boot to the Bios and to the hard drive.

You might have a Mother board problem
Try changing you Ram with a new one

and if you are using a graphic card remove your graphic card and use the onboard VGA to see if the card is giving you the display problem.

and if none above solution is working you might have to test your motherboard but we have to go through this step by step.
Leave a comment on this problem so that we can test your board stp by step

My Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo P tower fails to boot up, sometimes shuts down after a few seconds, no output to monitor. Can you help

I also have a Fujitsu-Scaleo P, yesterday I had the same problem exactly as described here. The issue is that the CPU fan does not work anymore. It is easy to replace, only four Phillips screws to be removed. I simply don't know if the new fan replacement can be bought alone, or if the air duct will be in the replacement kit, along with the aluminum block. It is a Cooler Master Model made by Protechnic Electric model MGT 9212ZR-W25. If it wasn't that the problem, when the computer is still cold, try to boot it, press DEL which will bring up the BIOS Setup Menu, and you can see if the Fan still works: in one of its menus shows the Fan RPMs and CPU Core Temperature. Good luck.
