The problem may not be the board at all I have seen MANY times that the power button itself is either disconnected or just mot functioning. locate the 2 connecting pins on your motherboard leading to the power button, unplug the wile and using a screwdriver short between the two pins for a second, if this starts your system then you know the culprit.

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 Series desktop that is totally dead. Nothing happens when power button is pushed. Of course it is plugged into a live outlet.


Possibly a bad power supply. Could aslo be bad hardware.

Depeding on how save you are with computers, depends on how far you might want to go with this.

But remove everything one at a time and try to start the computer. Until all you have is a motherboard, processor, fan, and power supply hooked up. If you are still not getting any power, try to swap the power supply first. If that doesnt work then either Motherboard or Processor.

Lastly, swap the power cable out to see if its a bad cable.

I had a loud fan noise coming from inside my desktop box for a while. One day (& ever since,) when I went to turn the box on, absolutely nothing happened: no fans, no BIOS, no LEDs. I made no config...


This may work however i think by ignoring the sound of the Fan you might have destroyed the cpu and the motherboard.If you can try the processor in another machine you might just have to replace the motherboard only.
Good Luck

Nothing happens when I press the power button. No


What about the power supply? I bet it's supply's issue. Otherwise make sure that PWR button wires are connected properly and to the correct terminals of the motherboard
