Intel D946GZIS machine will not start after being reassembled. The green light on the Motherboard is on but after hitting the power button nothing happens


It is more than likely the power supply that is faulty. Newer PSU's have a 5volt supply missing, this means that some older boards will not run with the new PSU's. Try and find an exact match for your older supply but with a better power rating, if that is what is required.

A power spike broke Dell Precision M20 motherboard


Hi there!

Yes it really does damage the motherboard when that kind of things happen.

You'd rather replace the motherboard than repairing it.

Hope this helps!

Emachines W2888 will Not Start up


Most likely the system board has failed. If the power supply had blown it is not unusual for the subsequent spike to blow the system board. On the other hand it may have been the system board that failed and the PSU is ok. Emachine system boards are rubbish

Either way you will need a new board and most likely a reinstall of the OS

Computer is not working, changed power supply and is sti dead


Try to unplug the power cable from the system for 2 minutes and then turn the PC on.

If that does not work, then look for the battery of the motherboard, it would be like a coin. Use clippers and remove it for 2 minutes and put it back in and power the system.

If that does not work then try and remove the one RAM at a time and restart your system.

If all the above steps does not work, then you would have to replace your MB.

CMOS Battery?


I am going to go out on a limb here and infer that when you try to power up the machine you get nothing - no lights, no display no beep. If this is the case then this would be symptomatic of a failed power supply, however the problem may not start or end there it is also sympomatic of a failed MB.

A good power supply will sacrafice itself to protect reliant components if there is a power spike, a "budget" one will pass the damage on.

In answere to your first question about the CMOS battery you are correct.

Basicaly buy a new power supply and don't buy budget but having done that don't be suprized if the MB has gone as well. Worse news is if you do have to change the MB depending on the age of your system you may have replace the CPU as well.

Sorry about the bad news, all I can offer on the positive side is that electrical equipment is usualy covered under a home and contents insurance package or a lease/rental agreement.

Hope this helps.

My Computer does not work at all.


more than sure if you have replaced the power supply already and the computer still not working,there must be a electrical damage to the board.
it is sure that.but you have to check some other components too seeing that they are stuck in the board,like the procesor and ramm dims or the video card..the electrical charge may have affect them too.
but 1st thing to do is to change the mainboard..
oh by the way...just to be sure..try to make a bios reset..maybe it will work and pull out the ramms from the computer..put them back after...ussualy this works...
good luck and let me know about
bye

Power supply


Usually this will damage the power supply only. To make sure your that your motherboard is working, try to find a working power supply unit and connect it. If it does not work your motherboard may be get damaged. Also check for warranty. If your system contains a graphics card, check that too, it may also get damaged with voltage variations.
