Help!!! My computer just stopped working. when i put it on it seems everythings working fine. All the light comes on normal in the case and fans working as well but there is no signal to monitor.

    thanks for the tips. One of my colleagues suggested that my problem might be with psu so I took it out and give a good clean. because it was quite dusty anyways since then now I got no power at all. I checked all the connection and connected correctly but now power supply doesn't work. Is it possible that my problem was always with power supply? Thanks again

    when I press the pwr button, the led on front blinks and the fans budge, then nothing. To even get the same result, I have to turn off the pwr switch on back of the computer, wait a few seconds, then turn it back on and press the pwr button on front. the psu has been checked out ok, I've switched the pwr button and restart button but nothing has changed.

It would seem that pc has an integrated video card.

So riddle me this ;) Does the machine give you any post codes?

Those would be the beeps you hear when the pc is loading.

If you power it up and let it run a while, and press the power button briefly, does the machine shutdown. This would indicate that the pc is booting into windows, and windows shuts down as it should.

Your Processor is not likely to be bad, your main board more likly, and the video card most likely.

With any luck you could replace the video card, to do this would be to install a new card, and disable the on board in the bios, or via jumpers.. However because the on board video could be the problem, that would mean the rest of the board may not be far behind.

There's a pretty good chance your CPU is bad.

Could also be the video card.

No heat just a/c fan works new thremostat flushed heater core seems like everything under the hood is fine temp gauge is normal just no heat

There is a simple test you can do in case the blend door is stuck. On the climate control panel, simultaneously press the OFF and FLOOR buttons, then within 3 seconds push the AUTO button. It is best to do this with the engine warmed up, but you can do it without the engine running, just turn the key to ON position. It will cycle the mini computer for a few seconds, After it stops, press the defrost button. Might fix it for free.

both the fan and light have a common connection .. usually all the white wires are connected at one wire nut .. check to see if the fan wire has pulled out of the wire nut ... remove the wire nut and re-tighten it .. pull on each wire to make sure each one is secure ..make sure power is off before working on this ...

Most likely you have a magnetron problem. Easy to replace (DYI) but make sure the high voltage capacitor is fully discharged first against the case.

Power shuts off and takes several minutes to turn back on

If the computer is overheating, those are the symptoms that would happen. Turn on your computer with the cover off. Are all the fans working (even in the power supply)? Is there a lot of dust build-up anywhere? Can you try another power supply? You need not install it in the computer case, just hook up the connectors with the known good power supply just outside the case and try it. Is your processor heat sink securely connected to the processor?

Yes, the blue wire is for the light. Just connect it to the hot wire (black).
