Re: won't turn on

Ok it sounds as if ya Power Supply Unit (PSU) may have gone faulty. Generally when a PC won't turn on it can only be caused by a few things. a faulty PSU, a faulty component/card stopping the PSU from working, Motherboard Fault. Faulty RAM

Ya have to isolate which one. So first open ya case up, then take note of the way things are connected. (Write them down, draw a picture) Then unplug ya Hard Drive, try it,  & then ya CD/DVD & try it, take any add on cards out, try it... & so on... to isolate ya faulty bit.

If it still doesn't go after removing everything except the Motherboard, then ya gonna have to try another Know Good PSU.... of course if it doesn't  work then, ya have a MotherBoard fault.

Just work thru it slowly.. and ya be all good.

if you have installed a new hardware, that might be the cause. specially if it is a video card. The wattage of your power supply might not be enough to run the computer. try to remove newly installed hardware such as video card. If there is none, you may try to remove the power for the hard drive and the dvd drive and check if it will turn on. Just bood in to bios..

if that works, then it definitely is the power supply. it cant provide sufficient power to your equipment..

hope that works.

Open it up again. Take the video card out. Take the Ram out. Unplug the hard drive. Unplug the other drives. Unplug the network card(s). And unplug anything else that is tied to the motherboard. Now plug it all back in snugly.Finally,turn it on. It should be fixed.

Compaq Presario SR2150NX doesn't turn on. Front panel green light turns on but nothing else happens (no fans, no boot, no noise, nothing) Please advice

On the back of the Power Supply there should be a Green LED, When you power it on if it is flashing, this means that the Power Supply is dead and you need to replace it.

PC will not turn on

There should be flash come on the green color. Remove your ram spray with soft air, then power on again. You might need to remove the heatsink and replace the heatsink paste, and clean around the CPU.

Computer will not turn on at all. Dell Dimension 5100 desktop

I would unplug the power supply from the motherboard, wait a little while and then plug it back in.
Try to power everything back up and it should come up.

I am assuming you are getting a light on the motherboard that indicates power is being supplied?

Most likely your laptop is going into sleep mode. Lots of them do not like sleep mode if nothing happens when you push the power button try to hold it down for about 5 sec. your computer should power off and then you can start as normal. If this problem persists change the options in your control panel to turn sleep mode off. That should solve it.
