What is the model number of the board?

If you were able to boot, then you defiantly got the CPU in properly. Sounds like you just need some tweaking in the bios.

    If you broke your CPU your pc would not show anything. So its a good sign that you get messages.

    Have you rest the bios yet? Try removing power, and the battery from the main board. Let it set for a minimum  of 5 minutes.

My computer burned 2 hdd


After i Read your Explaination,i really sure if the Problem is at your Computer POWER SUPPLY.
Change your Power Supply to Higher Watt.
i Recomended to you to Using SIMBADA Power Supply ATX.
and to Fix your HDD bad Sector,Try to use LLF (Low Level Format).
LLF will destroy all data and Partition.So after you Format using LLF,you need to make a New partition at your HDD.
LLF is Working for me to Fix Bad Sector in a So many times.

Power supply works but pc doesn't power up no lights and fans dont work


Have you checked the power supply in different system? If yes then first replace CMOS battery and switch the CMOS battery jumper. And while doing this please unplug the hard disk or optical drive data cables and power. If it does not work then check the power switch is working or not or it is perfectly connected with the front panel PINS on the motherboard. If it is not connected perfectly computer will not start after pressing power button.
Second Level Test : Remove the CPU Fan - replace the CPU perfectly - again place the Fan.

Third Level (motherboard test): Just take the motherboard removing CPU,RAM, SMPS - use another same type CPU, RAM and SMPS - if it does not work so it is motherboard problem. If it works may be CPU problem.

Dell Inspiron Vostro 530s won't boot.


Hi,

I work for Dell, If the power button led light is flashing amber or amber (the Power supply is faulty) The Yellow light you saw inside the motherboard is the "Flea Light" (that is one way you could check if there is still power on the motherboard). Since the motherboard was replaced there are a few more things to check:

1. Video card (integrated or expansion)
2. Monitor (Make sure it displays self test feature when the cables are removed)
3. Monitor Cables (VGA / DVi)
4. Power Cable on the Monitor (try a different cable)
5. Power Supply (you already checked, but i suspect this is causing the problem)

Hope this helps.

EMachines T2824. Does nothing but light on mainboard coming on...


This is a motherboard problem. You'll need to replace it. Although, it may be cheaper just to buy a new PC (eMachines are never very expensive, or well-made for that matter)

HARD DRIVE LIGHT COMES ON AT START BUT WILL NOT INITIALIZE THE MONITOR . THEN AFTER A MINUTE OR SO THE HARD DRIVE SHUTS OFF . THINK THIS A POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM . AFTER THE INITIAL SHUTDOWN WHEN RESTARTING...


It is a little hard to tell, I dont think its a psu problem.
I have seen something similar when a cpu/motherboard went faulty. (Older machine could not get either cpu or motherboard to test)
Also worth checking your ram is seated correctly.

Was having trouble with my pc wont power up.took it apart and there is a stain on the backside of the motherboard what does that mean? its not the power supply tested it on another computer.


if it is a dark brown stain then it is most probably a blown or leaked capacitor,or maybe a burnt out processor if the mark is opposite cpu.
the easiest way to test a motherboard is with a post test device.
you could alternately test all the components in another machine.i.e. cpu,ram,graphics, to make sure the are all alright.
