Computer power supply does not work

Computer froze had to unplug it. Now computer will not start. I think it is the powersupply because I have checked the power source and the power switch on the back of the power supply.

Need to know how old a computer it is as over the years the power supplies' use different methods of starting.

On newer computers the power supply is connected to the mother board by a 20 or 22 pin connector. The power button on the computer is just a momentary switch to start the computer. Make sure the large connector is firmly seated in the mother board. If you are comfortable with doing that have someone else check it. You do not want to damage the connector or mother board. You need to have some sort of anti static device conntected to your body to avoid any static discharge that could damage the mother board.

This has to be plugged into a motherboard and the switch to it as well is controleed by motherboard so no it will not come on just by applying power. I would try another supply for you inital issue if that does not turn on then what you got here is a cable backwords or a motherboard malfuction of some type.

My dell optiplex gx270 froze now will not come back on


Here try my trouble shooting steps. Some I usually follow this when I can't get a power up. My no-boot flow chart has always worked for me (many years work for Gateway tech support has paid off).

So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?


1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

If the Powersupply checks out ok, then you will have to do a process of elimination to find out what part or parts are the culprit of the No-Boot.

Start by pulling all the ram sticks if you have not already. This is the easiest components to check and usually a culprit.

Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

If it is not the RAM, you have to continue removing items such as sound cards, un-plugging hard drives and optical drives, other PCI cards. Do this one at a time until you find the culprit. If a POST screen, meaning you can see Anything from the PC brand name to Motherboard brand name appearing on the screen.

Hope this works. I am thinking the ram is probably toast. We will see.

After i turn on my machine i was get stuck within seconds ....PLZ Help me?


Can you get to windows at all or does the PC just not POST. Well I am assuming it tries to load windows.

I would see if you can go into safemode first. You may have a software problem.

If you can get into safemode then I would do this:


I would boot up to safemode (assuming that works) and type MSCONFIG in the run box. Check selective startup, then go to the selective start up tab and uncheck everything.

Click apply or ok.

Restart the PC and let windows load normally. If it does, then one of the things you unchecked was causing the problem.

I would then open the MSCONFIG again (can do this without entering SAFE mode for now). And then check one thing back at a time and restart the PC. If it hangs up on the last thing you unchecked than you have your answer.

Go back to safemode and uninstall whatever was causing the hangup.


If you think it is hardware then try these steps.


1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

My computer keeps booting every 2 seconds and I just can see motherboards first screen during 1 second then cant see anything else


I am almost positive it is the ram, because it gets to windows but crashes after loading windows partially. I once had a similar problem. Just make sure all the Power Supply connectors are properly connected.

Try these steps too:

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you are the victim of a bad BIOS flash, don't freak there are some options. First off, if the computer (or motherboard) is still under warranty the Computer (or motherboard) can be sent to the Vendor for a BIOS reprogramming.
If you are a DIY PCbuilder and the warranty is expired you can take out the bios chip andsent it someone who reprograms BIOS chips or you can buy a brand newchip form them. I will show you my people.
