PC wont start/boot

My pc wont boot or start, i turn the power on and the fans spin and the HDD and power indicator lights are NOT on. the screen is blank and there is no sign that the computer is doing anything.
I replaced the power supply from 300watts to 450. Before that ...it would not come on at all...but since the change, only the fans are working.

I appreciate any help/advise given!!

Unplug all drive cables, backwards P-IDE can cause this issue.
If this doesn't help remove the video card if possible If the motherboard is alive you should get a video beep.
If you don't hear anything remove the ram, you should get a memory beep. If you don't get a memory beep it's either the motherboard or CPU.
You could try to clear the CMOS and if the system has a backup BIOS review the manual to boot with the emergency BIOS.

Wont boot


In that case, looks like you have a faulty motherboard (video chip) chip-set. Remove motherboard from the casing and apply thermal paste. Also clean-up the whole board. I hope this will help you.

PC start up failer


  1. remove the two rear screws and remove all the cards attached to the main board
  2. unplug all the cables that connect from the drives to the board.
  3. power on the unit
  4. if the unit powers up, install one of the cards you removed and complete step 3
  5. if the system does not power up, the last card or device activated will be your culprit and will need to be replaced or left out.


if you find that your system will not show a bios splash screen with all the other components removed, then you are looking at either a video, or power supply failure. Listen to your system for spinning fans and hdd activity. touch the hdd if you cant hear it when you power up the system, paying close attention to when the drive activates. It should activate almost immediatley, pause, and then run for a short boot period. if nothing, then if may be your power supply. you will not be able to see any lights at all, no light on the motherboard, drives, or power LED is the best indicator of a shot power supply


Good luck, please rate this post

When pluged into outlet fans spins and doesnt stop, wont boot


Fan spinning hard is usually a CPU issue.
If you've made any hardware changes to your computer, undo them. This happened to me when I was trying to upgrade my Processor (CPU) and I had the wrong kind.

My hp dv9000 will not boot. when power is turned on all leds light up screen stays black. hard drive and fan can not be heard. restarts after 10 seconds with no error message or flashing lights.


Remove the hdd cover from the bottom and make sure it is completely seated and connected. If the hdd is properly installed and it still will not boot, try entering the CMOS Setup. If you can enter setup you most likely have a bad hdd. If you can't you need to take or send the pc to a repair shop.

Compaq Presario Wont Boot


Hi, my name is ArmyMason, hate to tell you this, but it sounds as if you have a bad Processor. Did you recently experience a bad storm with lightning? Was their a lot of dust on the fan? Lightning could have struck the computer and killed the processor or excessive overheating of the processor could have also been the case. If it was a lightning strike I would contact the insurance agency and have them replace your computer. Reason I think its the processor is because you don't recieve any post and the fan spins for a second and then shuts off.
