Compaq FS7600 Computer not turning on


what tower? model, the monitor has nothing to do with power and dead fans in the tower.
'Sounds, (and silent to) means the PLUS in the PC is dead.
all things can be repaired, that is what technicians do.
here is the chain of events, ! to get noise (fans)
power in the wall 120vac , usa
power to the PSU,
the power button goes to the MOBO, and standby power is there
now and pushing said button the MOBO commands the PSU on
if the PSU is happy (PWROK) thinks PSU IS safe the PSU tells the PC its ok, and power stays up.
and fans run.

so my guess bad PSU, its easy to test with anyf $10 voltmeter,
ask.

First remove the power plug from the smps and press the power switch few time and wait for few minutes the re plug the power connector to the smps and switch on the computer if you still dont have power then you will have to check whether the smps work to test that its not enough to test the voltage in the 21/24 pin you will have to short the green wire and the black wire and see whether the smps fan is working if the fan is not working then the problem is with smps

Motherboard no power


In this order:
check PSU is working ( fans run in the psu), test with another psu installed,
See of there is a green LED lit on the mobo
Check capacitors are not bulging or leaking and there are no signs of burned circuit traces on mobo
remove ram and try booting see if you get power to the cpu fan
try bypassing the PW switch and touching the PW terminals on the fpanel header to eliminate swith problem.

If that fails, suspect dead mobo

Tyan S5396 and Thermaltake 1500W


tyan i5400xt.. to test for ground.. pull the board from the chassis and test with a different known good power supply

if the boot works... then you have a power supply issue...

does the board have a post code lighted signal ???

if so.. a bad power supply should goto FF error code

verify you have enough power on the cpu rail with your power supply specifications also

be sure you have all cables 4 pin 8 pin and 20/24 pin connections done correctly.. lastestly check if the board is touching the chassis edge anywhere... could cause a ground

also take and loosen all the MB screws from the chassis.. just let it hang there this will test the grounds needs the screw connections

Fans runs but no post,no beeps.


The best advice I can give you is to remove the motherboard battery (UNPLUG THE PSU BEFORE YOU WORK ON THE MOTHERBOARD) and let the system sit for about an hour. If the CMOS settings are corrupted, removing the battery will erase the corrupted data in the CMOS, which will automatically reset the CMOS to the default settings... Then, plug the battery back into the motherboard, and try to boot the system...

If that doesn't work, you should disconnect EVERYTHING attached to the PSU, and remove ALL of the add-in cards (modem, NIC, soundcard, TV tuner, whatever you have), and install ONLY the CPU, the heatsink/fan (don't forget to PLUG THE CPU FAN IN), ONE stick of RAM... you get the idea. DISCONNECT the HDD, the FDD, the optical drive, and ANYTHING ELSE from the PSU. When you're ready to test the system, you should have ONLY the CPU, the HSF, and one DIMM plugged into the motherboard. Attach the PSU connectors (both the main ATX connector AND the auxiliary 4-pin 12-volt connector) to the motherboard, and try to boot the system. If it works, SHUT DOWN and UNPLUG THE PSU; then install ONE component (the floppy drive, for example), reattach the PSU, and reboot the system. If the system POSTs, shut down, unplug, and add another device. If the system does NOT complete the POST process, the last piece of hardware you installed is probably the culprit.

Take your time with this; be methodical, and make GOOD notes about the steps you've followed, so we can help you work through this problem...

Best of luck to you; keep us "posted" on your progress...
