    This is an addition to the previous no power problem.  The motherboard is Asus P4GE-MX.  What is S1, S2, S3, S4 (sleep mode)? How do I turn it on?

Colored ribbons on motherboard and correct ports

Helps if you post the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number.


Post the computer manufacturer name, and model number.

This is found on the back of a Desktop PC, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

Color of the cables ('ribbons') doesn't matter.

WHAT they are does.

NOW.........I can guide you with plugging in power cables FROM the Power Supply, TO motherboard. Also the different peripherals the power cables plug into. (Harddrive, optical drive, fans, etc)

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front panel go to; is the Front Panel header.
(Power On switch, Power On LED light, Harddrive LED light, Reset switch, etc)

I MAY be able to give you a Front panel header pinout.

We will see about Front USB ports, Front Audio ports, Card Reader, etc.

I CANNOT give you the color code of the wires, coming FROM the Front Panel, TO the Front Panel header.
I CAN give you info on how to find out what each one is, though.

Will not turn on when power button is Dell Inspiron 518 will not turn on when power button is pressed. Green LED on back of powersupply lights and orange LED on motherboard turns on. No fan operation on...

Green LED on back of power supply indicates it's getting power. That does not mean that it's distributing the power voltages to the computer. You could have a bad power supply or a bad motherboard. Just to make surethat nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem,video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cablesto CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Hello, my 8gb Sandisk light is keep flashing and is not bieng reconized by my laptop.


Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that's it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don't really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power.

First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be "rebooted" also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!

So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.
Hope this helps someone fix that pesky "USB device not recognized" Windows error!

good luck.

My Dell inspiron 518 will not turn on when power button is pressed. Green LED on back of power supply lights and orange LED on motherboard turn on. No fan operation on anything. Thinking it is the switch...

Green LED on PS means it's getting AC power. Orange light on motherboard means it's receiving power from PS but it may not be the correct voltage. The power supply isreceiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to thecomponents. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defectivemotherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, removeany PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memorymodules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see ifany are damaged.

Screen will not come on hard drive light no light checked power supply is ok

Things to check:
  1. Power led on the front of the tower, it should be solid green when on. Flashing Amber is generally an indication of a bad power supply inside the tower
  2. Power LED Solid AMBER indicates system is not finishing the power on self test (POST) and you remove all connections from the tower except power and try turning on again. If no change, remove all PCI and PCI-E cards from system, try again, no change replace motherboard.
  3. On the back of the tower are 4 diagnostic LEDs near the ps2 ports marked ABCD, after the POST, during a normal boot the will flash in several sequences and with boot is finished all 4 should be green. If they stop an a different pattern, then that indicates a failure Yellow Yellow Green Green indicate bad RAM for example
  4. If the LEDs on front and back are Green then the system appears to be booting but the monitor display is not functional

Whenever I insert my pen drive into my pc,it restarts computer. what is the problem ?

if this is only happening on 1 usb port, there is a short in that port that is causing you PC to shut down. Your motherboard BIOS is probably set to reboot on power loss which means it will boot right back up if it shorts out.

If it happens on every USB port then your pen drive is faulty and I would refrain from inserting it anymore before you damage your hardware.

If the pen drive works on someone elses computer, then it sounds like the SOUTHBRIDGE chip (chip on motherboard that controls USB, PCI slots, firewire ports, etc) is going bad or is faulty.

Below is a few generic guide that should stop some of the confusion with the labels on the wires.

Asrock motherboard prescott 800

If your monitor is plugged into your computer in the same area as your USB ports and everything else, you are using on-board video. If it is plugged into a card using one of the expansion slots located lower on the computer, it is a separate video adapter. Changes to BIOS settings can make it so it is not sending your video output ro the correct port in that case. You could have a problem with your power supply or your motherboard. Just because you hear the motors on the devices doesn't mean there isn't a power porblem. The motors use 12V DC, but most of the logic circuitry that makes everything else work is only 5V DC. Many motherboards have a small LED on them that serves as a "power good" indicator. If that is not on, the power supply is the most likely culprit, otherwise the motherboard probably needs to be replaced. Something else you should check before buying replacement parts is that no USB flash devices are plugged into the computer and that no blank CDs are inserted into any optical drives. I have seen both cause similar problems on other system.
