This sounds like a bad fan, could be a case fan, cpu or power supply so need to identify where its coming from by taking the side of the case off.

Tower won't turn on


Brandi,

Please check the following:

1. Make sure the the surge protector is securely plugged into the wall. Test this by plugging in a light / lamp to it, to make sure it's working.
2. Make sure that the surge protector is turned on.
3. Check to make sure that the power cable from the computer to the power surge protector is securely plugged in.
4. Check to see if the computer will power on now.

5. If this still isn't working, remove the power strip/surge protector and connect the computer directly to the wall.

6. If this STILL isn't working, try plugging your computer into a different outlet in the house to see if the outlet in your home might be bad.

6. If your computer STILL isn't powering on then I'm afraid the worse has happened, which is one of the following issues:

1. Bad power supply (they are cheap, around $20-40)
2. Bad motherboard (they are sort of pricey, around $50-200)
3. Bad CMOS battery (they are cheap, around $5-10)

I can fix all of the above and order parts for all of the above, if you are in need of parts.

I hope this troubleshooting guide helps you! If this resolves your issues, please mark this question as resolved and select my answer. This will assure customers that I can help them with their issues.

Thank you,

Need to replace mother board


It looks like you have an AMD Sempron 3000 system. If you have a mid tower case, look for any atx motherboard that supports that cpu. If you have a mini case, you will have to look for a mini-atx motherboard. The description about the motherboard will give the dimensions of the motherboard and you can measure your case to make sure it fits before ordering. With it being such an old computer, I would not put a lot of money into the motherboard itself. check out www.geeks.com at http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=A8N-LA-PB-NP&cat=MBB for a good buy at about $35.00 USD.
