Computers are all different for entering setup. f1 f2 f10 or f11... sometimes it's just the delete key that you hit .... do that as soon as you turn on the power... one should work

Fan works randomly....when it's not working plug

Hi, If the computer is hot near the electrical plug in the back of the computer then the power supply needs to be replaced. This will also cause overheating problems if the fan does not exhaust enough air. You should not run the computer in this condition because the power supply can short out and take other components with it. Also there is a risk that it will burn up. Power supplies are very inexpensive and can be changed by anyone with basic computer repair knowledge. Hank

Your psu is works fine.
First open cpu cabinet and find motherbord.
Pull CMOS cell from m/b for 10 minutes.
Refix RAM Memory.
Pull procesor fan and processor clean dust from all parts.
Then fix processor fan and processor.
Reconnect ATX connector to m/b.
Remove pci cards from PCI slot then check.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

Emachine wont start

remove all external and internal peripherls.

example for external: mouse, monitor, keyboard, printer.

Internal: hard drive, memory modules, video cards, modem (if there's any), optical drive or dvd drives.

just leave the motherboard, power supply and processor intact, try turning on the computer with out those components mentioned. see if you get a beep sound before it turns off, but if not the most logical part that needs to be replaced on this type of problem is the power supply if that doesn't work the next thing to do is replace the motherboard. hope that helps

hit me back on the results. thanks!

I'm having problems starting my desktop computer. After I push the power button, I hear the computer working but it doesn't fully com on. There's no display on the monitor and I continue to hear the...

When you say you hear the computer working and working do you mean that the fans are going and the lights are on?

i ask this because the fans and power lights can come on just from the power supply coming on when you push power but that doesn’t necessarily mean the cpu is functioning.

Do you hear a post system beep and the hard drive reading files also?

Or does it just sound like only the fans cam on ?

If you think that possibly only the fans are working then try this

Shut down the computer and unplug the power cable.
Check to make sure monitor cable is connected all the way
Open the case and check to see that the video card is inserted all the way into the board properly
Remove the memory (RAM) and then put it back in to make sure it is properly seated in the slots
Plug in computer and try it again and if it still does not work then try clearing CMOS
on some systems you can clear the CMOS very easily by just holding down the insert key on your keyboard while pressing power button and continue to hold it down when releasing power button until you see something on the screen but since this does not work on all computers you might have to do it manually by moving the CMOS jumper on the board
(the CMOS jumper on the motherboard is usually the one closest to the little battery that you see on the board. with the computer off move the jumper over one notch to the other pin for a second and then put it back where it was (there are usually only three pins so this is easy step)
You should now be able to boot but you will need to go into the CMOS setup and set the clock again and other settings

If you still have a blank screen then let me know and i will take you to the next diagnostic step...

Hope this info helps

Won't boot up, Fans are on non-stop

Open up the pc with power off. After cleaning with a blowing or sucking device, gently press on the connections and plug-in devices. Retry.

If no avail, the power supply or the motherboard may have bit the dust. U can get them repaired or replaced.... or save the HD and buy a another pc and add the old HD as a data disk.

My computer won't start! It was shut down by the start menu and when I went back to it about an hour later, I push the button in to power the computer on and nothing is happening. Yes, it is plugged in...

Unplug it and hold the power button in for up to 60 seconds to discharge.

Is there an I/O button in the back of the computer? Make sure it is set to I.
