Computer won't turn on after trying to plug in

You never plug anything into the expansion slot whilr the computer is turned on and running. This is a sure way of damaging the motherboard.
Turn off the computer and remove the wireless adapter and then boot up your computer, if it still does not boot up then the motherboard most likely been damaged.
I suggest you take it to a computer repair shop to assess the damage and give you a repair quote.

The satellite pro p300 will not start, power, charge lights come on, no beeps. The CD drive initalises. I can put a cide in and the light comes on. There is nothing on the laptop screen or the external...

Check the time if you can, doubt it since it can not display anything.
This usually happen when:
1. The memory card is bad, needs to be replace.
2. The video card is bad. Since it's a laptop, then the problem is with in the motherboard.
Sometimes when the BIOS battery is drained, it also stop the computer from displaying. To see the battery you must take apart the computer.
And the last thing in the list is the monitor it self. Maybe the monitor got damage some how and it won't display anything.
To troubleshoot, I recommend you start with the memory, and since the computer must be 64 bits, it needs 2 memory card of at least 2gb. each stick, if one of them is damage and both are still connected to the motherboard, the monitor won't display anything either.

Power button not turning computer on

this is most likely a short in a computer component, You need to unplug everything from the computer incl CPU, Memory, Add on Cards, Hdds, the lot, just have motherboard plugged in and push power, if it powers up (there won't be a pic but you will know it's working) start replacing parts one by one until it won't start and that is the faulty part. If it does nothing with just motherboard plugged in the motherboard is at fault and needs to be replaced, If you have had the motherboard out make sure no of the metal mounts in the case are shorting out anywhere under the motherboard as this will also cause the same fault.

I have mother board intel d-845wn with 1.5 intel pentium processor having 256 sdram 133 bus. power supply is ok but motherboard is not active and i didnt find any physically damage in it. and also no any...

You need to test all the components of the computer by elimanate them one by one until the computer shows signs of life. First check the processor heatsink and fan assembly and see if it is properly setting on the processor. Try removing all the components from the set up but the power supply and one stick of ram and the harddrive. See if the computer will turn on.If it does not start-up, tryreplacing the memory stick and see if it starts-up. Try replacing the harddrive and see if it starts-up.If not try replacing the power supply and see if it starts-up. if all this fails to start the computer, You will have to take the heatsinkand fan assembly off the processor and check to see if the processor is in good condition.Take it out of the socket and see if the pins are damaged or if the socket is damaged. If all this looks good. Reapply the thermal grease to the processor and heatsink fan assembly and reseat the heatsink and fan assembly. Check to see if the computer starts up. If not.Take out the motherboard and look for possible shorts to the computer case chassie. Check all the motherboard screws points and make sure they are not shorting somthing out on the case. Reinstall the motherboard and make sure all connections and connectors are good and fit tightly.If the computer still fails to start, Change the processor and retest the computer to see if it will start-up. If all this testing fails to get the computer started, you have a damaged motherboard and if it is still under warranty have it replaced. You must be very careful working on the computer and wear anti-static wrist bands and gloves if you have them to avoid discharging static electricty into the memory and processor units. Also you can damage the motherboard with a static discharge. You can check on the motherboard website and look in the frequently asked questions and troubleshooting section for you model motherboard and see if this is a known problem with a posted solution. If all this is over your head you should take the computer to a service center and have them test it for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

D915GAG problem

this cant have anything to do with only replacing a cooler, unless when fitting it you have caused some sort of stress damage to the motherboard. Check all seatings of ram, graphics card and power connections in case they have been dislodged. I assume you have tried resetting the cmos settings in case there is a corrupt bios for some reason. The only other check is to see if the cooler is starting up straight away, as the processor may be shutting down if there is no fan running, or the motherboard is reading the temperatures incorrectly and not enabling you to boot.
