Is the switch ok? Clean your Motherboard for dust too. CORRUPTED BIOS Reprogramming the BIOS depends on your motherboard Model. It should correspond to your BIOS Model. Download the Motherboard's BIOS file usually in a Zip file then the contents are .bin files. Then use the BIOS manufacturer's EPROM Programming tool. Which usually comes with a user manual or guide on how to's. Just follow its examples. Hope this helps ======================= If you are having trouble with Newly bought items save your self from headaches by returning them and demand a replacement or a refund! You may have purchased a reconditioned\repaired\factory defect product.

Hannstar ACER j mv-4 doesn't start up


no pc stated, maker or model #,, sounds kinda DESKTOP>?????
no oS stated
step one is test the MV4 on a known working pc,!!!
why wait, this so basic....
are you using VGA to VGA or DVI to DVI connections??????

the DESKTOP,
no sound means the fans are dead and PSU dead.
The PSU will run for 1 second and fans run now. if not PSU is dead.
if fans do run and stop that means PSU dead or mobo shorts or bad reg on MOBO. or bad ram. strip it down to test that.

ok fan runs that means 12vdc good. if stay running,
and if PSU stays up, then NEXT TEST IS Screen
is it 100 % dead, or do you get text or logos."
100% dead means to me bad VGA card(or chip GPU)
if the Hot key for BIOS fails, that means bad POWER/
or bad VIDEO card.

the fans run but are silent, I envy you.. sell me your fans....
im 1/2 deaf from Vietnam and can still hear all my fans.

my DT has 4 fans min. (it's Alien-ware box++++)
CPU, GPU and PSU, and 1 case fan,all must work.
do yours?

when you power on a PSU, the fans run and stay running
if that takes sides off so be it, ever clean the 5lbs of lent seen inside from 5 years, collected?
If you dont service any pc, this packs up and the CPU overheats
and shuts its self down by DESIGN.
why no do that service first.
see that CPU, see those fins, see that pack up there.
blow it out, outdoors, using CAN-0-AIR

mine over heats my GPU fast with lent, my Graphics car runs super hot and fast and lent is NOT ALLOWED here. ever..

old pcs with slow cpu ,, tend to packup slower, well lets say
they can run longer with huge lent here. its just slug processor so...
that is what it does.

recap.
  1. fans all run.
  2. BIOS dead?
  3. screen dead. no words no text at all.
  4. MV4 tested on other PC works. proves PC bad.
  5. LENT PACK job. as all do every year here, all.
  6. Bad VGA caRD. or using wrong port if PC has 2 VGA jacks. !

My computer wont turn on


take out the psu completely from the cpu/tower, plug in the power cord,if there is a switch on the psu turn it on, next locate the main power connector (24pin) and find green wire,take a piece of wire and insert it into the green wire connector,next touch the other end of the wire to the psu outer case or a black wire on the main connector,if all is well the psu will turn on,if you have a dc voltage tester check the voltages on the red and black wires on molex connector...5vdc,yellow and black...12vdc.if ok look at the main board and inspect the capacitors to see if they are swollen, if ok
replace psu and disconnect hdd,cd/dvd,floppy ect from main board only leave memory,processor and video, power on if ok shut off and reconnect hdd, power on, if ok shutoff and connect floppy, if ok power off and connect cd/dvd drive.during this testing you will know what is bad.let me know how it turns out.email; arjoon.ken@gmail.com

PC dead. Replaced power supply. No lights. No nothing.


When that happens it is usually the motherboard.

To test parts you need a benchmark.

PSU can be tested using a multimeter.

Motherboard is tested using a tester like this one: PCI Test Card, PC Analyzer, Motherboard Test Card
Ram and CPU (CPU sometimes get damaged) are usually not damaged by this kind of problems, they can be tested mounting them on a working motherboard. For the RAM we also use a RAM tester that costs about $200.

Ensure also that the switch contacts to new motherboard are installed properly. A technician can test cabinet power switch using a multimeter, or carefully bridging with a screwdriver the switch on contacts on motherboard (do not do this unless you are sure about what you are doing)

Test the new PSU on a different socket, when a PSU blows , it may damage the main socket.

Also remember that new power supply units have two connectors. The big rectangular main one (24 pin) and a smaller 4 pins squared one.

As an home user you may not have access to testing equipment, therefore my suggestion is.

Ensure you are using the right PSU.

Ensure that the motherboard is connected to power switch.

Test the new PSU with a multimeter.

Examine the motherboard for blown or leaking components and burnt areas.

If you do not find anything, but the mainboard is still not working, then buy a motherboard-cpu bundle compatible with the PSU that you bought and assemble a new system inside the old cabinet.

Computer not functioning


Sorry, but looks like the main board is dead (or the main CPU)
The minimum is to have the CPU and RAM installed, so the bios can be accessed.

Hi:
These two may not be the same problem.
As another has said, the first one could be CMOS problem. Get to the cmos by hitting del. on most machines, some use other keys, make sure you watch it closely as it turns on, and hit the key.
See what the settings are. If the settings are ok, then go on to test, if not suspect the battery. Replace it and set the bios/cmos to the settings preferred.

Second one....
You said it turned off. Suspect the following:
Power supply, CPU or fan or both, possible other causes such as hard drive.

Usually the ram would not cause a problem like this...you would at least have some power at the mother board or fans.
You can try this.
The power switch can be a problem here. Test the power switch to see if it is good. One way to do that is to disconnect it from the mother board or remove it from the case, and use an ohm meter to test it(with the power off of course). Some power switches are hooked directly to the power supply. You can remove the power switch from the case, then short the two wires to try to start the system, if that does not work, then it probably is not the switch.

Remove all pc cards from the mother board. unplug any fans, and the hard drive/s, except the cpu fan...we need that.
Only the power supply should be connected, then try, if nothing, continue to test.
See if the computer will turn on. If it turns on, then you need to test each item one by one to see where the computer will not start. The reason I say this, is that all the later power supplies will detect when a short or problem with a component happens. The power supply built in protection will not allow the system to start at all. However, you may hear a very small click or the fans may move a little bit, that is only if there is a problem somewhere in the system when all is hooked up.

Try another power supply, if you can get another one, pref. to borrow or use one you have around.
Examine all cables going to the mother board. Check that they are plugged in correctly, especially the power cables.

One thing here that can stop a computer is a bad CPU, or connections which are not right, that is they could have come loose. What you can try is to carefully remove the CPU (make sure you know how, and how to replace it) examine it on top and underneath. If the CPU had thermal compound on the surface, you may have to clean it and then replace new compound. You can carefully clean the top and the fan heat sink with rubbing alcohol, then dry it, and place new compound on it before putting back.
If so far nothing still is working, then you need to see if the CPU is good. Have a friend or use another computer to test it. If the CPU is good, continue.

If you are still having problems, the mother board may have a problem, such as a burnt out chip or other component.
These test options should get you to find the problems.

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.
