Testing and replacing the PC power supply

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect ,boot up a computer hard drive

WARNINGBefore you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.


Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE ,SATA
the leads from yourMOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVEmake sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


Make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd \ cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty.


Computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.


Even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems


Motherboard and a Hard Drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail.


Check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in.


Check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat

Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490


Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.


Another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit.

If you can get your computer stable enough

scroll to bottom toolbarbottom of screen right click select task manager
applications you will see whats running if you see anything you dont need running select end now

also under processes see what is ticking over again if you see something you do not need to be running end nowor you might uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs

not having enough computer ram can cause memory dumps

If you are not sure if a module is right for your system use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system

you should always for a guarantee on any ram modules when purchasing them or buy working pairs if possible.

You might have a virus or malware.

Download at least one of these of course it will depend on your operating system.

No power coming on intel desktop motherboard d845


Check the power supply to the motherboard i.e the SMPS, if it is working the fan of the SMPS will rotate. If the SMPS is ATX you can check it without connecting it to the motherboard. Unplug all the SMPS power connectors from the motherboard and then short circuit the green and the black wire of the 20pin connector of the smps, if the SMPS is working the fan of the SMPS will rotate. If the SMPS is in good condition and working, than it might be a problem in the internal circuit of the motherboard.

Pc not switching on even after changing smps. even fan not switching on in smps


Dear,
You can test you smps simply by shorting any of the back wire and green wire. this will switch on your smps withour connecting with mother board. IF it the fan rotate, SMPS is ok.
If you need more trouble shooting on SMPS you have to measure the volate on each wire after powering on.
