Re: help!!!

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.

Re: help!!!

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

Could also be the video card.

Everything was working fine, then one day I switch...

Try to check your CPU unit it maybe have a power when you turn it on. Or just check their power suppy at the back when it works. If you check that all and it works normal just check inside your computer and try to see the Power LED (Light Emiting Diode) of the motherboard if have a light. Because if it is have a light your motherboard is good and if it is no light in the Power LED of the motherboard that was damage. But if your motherboard does not have installed Power LED try to check the CPU Fan it maybe works properly it because the CPU Fan was conncected in the motherboard if did not works the motherboard is also damage and need to replace. But if the CPU Fan was working properly, try to hold the CPU Heatsink if it is very hot the damage is your micro processor.

No POST/Black Screen

Believe it or not, clearing the CMOS might actually help. Make sure you do it right by completely unplug the power cord or turn off the PSU, then take the battery out.

It also sounds like the CPU might be too hot. Look under the fan of the heatsink and see if there is any dust that will block the airflow. When the computer is on, touch the heatsink and feel if it is really warm. If it is really warm, it's a good sign, you might just need more airflow. If it is cold, you might need to reinstall the heatsink/apply new thermal compounds.

Help! Computer will not boot-up to bios check,

I would look for the CMOS reset jumper on the motherboard, if there is one, and while PC is off take of the jumper, then put it back in place. But the more easier option is to just simply remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard, unplug PC completely first, leave it out for a few seconds, then replace it. If that works, you may come across some operating system start options to start the os, depending of what version you have make sure you select the Delete sleep mode data/hibernation data(something along those line), and start OS normally. By the looks of it you've tried everything possible, but last resort would be to try the resetting CMOS/removing CMOS battery. If all fails, try testing using a different power supply.

Computer turns itself off

try installing a chassis fan to reduce heat inside your case, as the other guy said, dust is a big possibility, the problem does not appear to be CPU but I would check to see that the spu fan is running normally.

Another thing could be that it is time for a more potential power supply.

Power to everything but CPU fan and case fan - won't boot

Hi this is tech crazy

The solution to the problem is as follows

The main reason for CPU fan overworking or not working is due to the load we put on the syatem while operating.So,the first reason for fan not working may be due to the SMPS malfunctionality.Better check out for it.The reason if fan is working but Overworking is due to viruses is system.So go in for format

Power LED on but no boot up

it could be your power switch, veriy that it isnt the power supply by

1.) un-plug it from the main board
2.) look at the main board connector(one coming of the power supply)
3.) you should see green wire and next to it a black one
4.) using a paper clip bridge the too wires
5.) if it works proceed to net step if not get a new power supply

to check case switch and board switch

1.) plug in power supply to main board
2.) look at the pins where the power button connects to
3.) using a metal object (blade screw driver) bridge the pins

if the board should start up>
then its your power button on the case that is bad, you can try to repair it, chage it or buy a new case,

if it doesnt work.
1.) ensure that jcms(jumper to flash the bios) is set correctly
2.) unjack each drive one at a time to see if any is causing stalling
3.) get a new main board

Computer powers off while booting, green light stays on!

1. check the cpu fan is properly working with normal speed..

2. go to bios setup and restore all settings to default.

3. if windows start and problem comes after some time , then it might be virus. so, go for a virus scan.
