Question about QDI Group QDI Advance 9 Motherboard

My computer does not turn on right away, except fans.

Hello! My computer does not turn on right away. When I hit a power button, only a fans will turn on. The whole computer starts working after two minutes or so. It means that the red and green diode on the front panel light up after two minutes or so. If the computer is already warmed up (I worked on it a while before), it will start working immediately. Do you know what could be causing the problem? Please advise. Thank you. Marco

    It can be the solution. You've sent me a link to a good article, which says that even a failing power supply can still be working. It's probably my case.
    Thank you very much.

    Have a nice day.

It could be a failing power supply, but here's a good article to help you diagnose the issue. A local computer technician will be able to load test your power supply if you take it in to them and let you know quickly if that is indeed the problem, in which case it's fairly inexpensive to remedy.
Otherwise I would guess a boot issue of some kind.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

    I think that's the most logical place to start. If the power supply checks out ok, then I would run chkdsk /r (link here) to check the hard drive for bad sectors, as a slow to spin up hard drive might be temperature related, and finally you might wish to check the memory.(link here).
    Good luck with it!, and let us know how it works out if you get a chance...

Emachine cooling fans will not turn off with power button, no POST

From your description it sounds like Electrolytic Capacitor's on the motherboard are fried

The one's used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, and more specifically the one's used to control voltage for the Processor.

Tall statement?

"I was using the PC as usual (not working on it). It just rebooted itself; came on for a minute, and then shut off; with the exceptions of the fans. They got very loud."

Processor isn't working. All the power is going to the fans.

Starts at 0:04

This is a video of why your computer restarts.
It's because of bad Electrolytic Capacitors, in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, and more so, the one's that control voltage for the Processor.

Eventually the capacitors fail enough, and/or more than the needed amount of capacitors fail; and the Processor turns off.
(BIOS turns it off)

Isn't stated in the video. However, I used the video for reference for you.

NOTE that capacitors, used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit
for the Processor, are not just the one's immediately surrounding the Processor.

You have to follow the circuit traces on the motherboard, (Bottom and Top), and follow from the processor socket.

Some of the capacitors used for the Processor, could be pretty far away from it, on the motherboard.

[Circuit traces. Also known as signal traces.
Think; Very tiny thin flat copper wires, on the motherboard ]

eMachines are a budget computer. NOTHING wrong with that.
However one of the cost cutting choices they make, is using low quality capacitors.

All of the above sound like a foreign language? Sorry, not meant to be.
The main thing is to use the following link for reference, and look at the capacitors on your motherboard.
(Close. May need a light)
{Power unplugged from computer, and FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions}

Then suspect the Power Supply. Need guidance in testing it post back in a Comment.

I turn on my tower and the fans move and the disk try clicks like it wants to spin then i turn the monitor on and it turns green them orange right away and says entering power save mode waht do i do

1) Unplug the computer from power.

2) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds.

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this same procedure two more times. (Or until the Power On LED does not light up anymore)

3) Plug the computer into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

The fans should spin at high speed for a few seconds, then settle down.
Let's see if the computer boots.

Post back in a Comment, and we will go from there.

MY PANASONIC PT-50DL54J DLP will just turn off. I

I have posted solutions for similar problems.
There may be a heat issue with the power supply components.
Remove the back panel and blow compressed air into all the component area, (except the fan on the right). The power supply is on the left.
Then vacuum all the dust out.

There may be a problem with the battery in the remote. Weaken batteries can cause the remote to send random signals (including turning off the set).

Power up IMac but screen blank, fan on, light on but no response

I have one doing exactly this at the moment. It had gone to sleep and the fans were going like crazy. I think it is a Motherboard failure (it happened with many G5 iMacs), this one has been replaced once already, and I can't actually get it to install anything. I'm taking it apart tomorrow to see what I can find inside. If I fond anything I'll let you know.

Turns Off by itself

Causes for this problem can be any of the following:
1- CPU gets overheated. solution: clean dust from fan and heatsink assembly and donot forget to replace the heatsink compound, this is very important.
2- Memory problems. solution: use a program called MEMTEST86+ from the site . It is a free and great program.
3-Power problem. By time the capacitors of the power supply gets dried. Causing them to not be able to fulfill power demands. solution: try working with power supply without battery. As the power supply has to run computer and charge battery. We reduce the load. If everything is fine. repair power supply by replacing deffective capacitor.
4-Battery problem. Try operation without battery.
5-Dried solders on motherboard or a component problem on the motherboard. Solution: no solution except replacing motherboard.
