Dropped PC tower 2 ft, now it's dead?

I was moving my PCs tower, and now when I try to turn it on, only the fans run. There is no beep, there's not even a sign of life on the monitor. I have already ensured that the RAM is in place tightly.

I'm just hoping the answer isn't that I'm screwed.

    did you check and double check all connections? inside and out? and be sure you use proper ESD precautions

  • ERIC BAKER May 11, 2010

    Have you tried checking all your internal connection's other than the ram to make sure something's not lose?

    Ouch! what else have you checked (is the CPU still connected tightly? have you checked the hard drive connections - to motherboard and to hard drive? etc.)

It's highly likely that either the RAM or the Video card came loose. Remove all RAM chips and reseat them. Do the same with your video card. Video cards have a way of becoming loose even if they feel ok. The only way to be sure is completely remove, then reseat it.

I have a Hp Dc5750 mall factor desktop that was working fine 2 months ago we moved and i shut down right and have not touched it for 2 months now it is making 2 short beeps and flashes a red light whe

Check the power supply connections inside the tower. The move may have dislodged one or more. You should also remove and re fit the RAM sticks - make sure the power lead is dis-connected when you do this.

Pc wont start when turned on and the fan runs at high and it beeps 4 times

The RAM in the motherboard is not seated properly, it might have slightly moved out of the slot or the physical contacts is not proper.It can happen while moving the cpu or may be due to any other shocks. Open the CPU tower. Remove the RAM and place it back in the same slot after dusting the slot. It will work for sure 100%

Tower is On, fan inside is spinning, no beep, not reponding to monitor, monitor is in working condition

You will want to go through my published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Your computer has failed the POST test. No beep confirms this. Try cleaning the RAM and reinstalling.

However it is probably due to a faulty mainboard.
Diagnose the problem first though.

Take care!

Hpcompaq dx2200 tower pc my pblm is 1)cpu shows

old compaqs. came with XP windows, the dead OS.
what is shitch? ah, switch it one ...
smps? (SMTP?)\
count the beeps, its a code the code i bet is overheated.
The service Free, manual covers that.
the fan must work or the CPU overheats, fix fan first.
in fact all fans seen, there , inside and in PSU .

The CPU is smart, it slows down when hot and if the fan is dead
the CPU stalls. see? by design (intel inside did that magic) to protect itself.

HP supports it

ever clean it first?

Tower Beeping

As I can see the problem is not monitor but your PC if computer chasis beeping, depends on number of beeps the problem can be VGA card one long beep and 3 short or RAM if it beeping one by one short beep and finaly CPU if it continuosly beeps like police sirene. If beeps are pointing to VGA or RAM you must open computer chasis and plug out VGA and RAM and clean dust out of slots and of VGA card and RAM as well with painbrush and vacum cleaner and plug them back.
Good luck!
