Re: main board dead

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.

No debug LED show on my flaming blade gti

If your PSU give wrong voltage it produce same problem with 2 solution:
1-test your PSU
put a wire between green and black and voltage must be:
yellow 12V, red/purple/gray 5V, orange 3.3V.
If your PSU give under voltage (more than -10%):Buy a new one and test your motherboard(mb) with it (in this case there aren't a lot of chance that your mb and/or your CPU are dead)
If your PSU give good voltage:(-10% / +5%):There are a lot of chance that is you mb or CPU
If your PSU give over voltage:Buy a new one and test your motherboard with it (in this case there are a lot of chance that your mb or/and your CPU are dead)

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.

Please help me!

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 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.

PC wont boot, not even to bios

Maybe the mobo is shot for u and he has his PSU shot.......Check for any burnt smells from the mobo. See if the cable from the PSU is properly connected to the mobo. Try removing all drives like graphics cards, RAMS one by one and see if it works.

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.
