SOURCE: IBM ThinkCentre 8183 (M51) does not boot

The situation you describe is usually 1 of 2 things, Power supply (PSU) or Motherboard (mobo).
Situation #1: If you get a blank screen and no sounds or movement it either indicates that the power supply unit (PSU) has failed or something on the motherboard has failed, preventing normal startup. Fans are usually the first thing to get power, then the mobo for the Power on Self Test (POST).
Situation #2: You might get some power lights coming on and some fans spinning but the video output does not happen and normal startup sounds do not take place, usually indicates that motherboard is going out or has gone out. OR it may be due to a weak (damaged) PSU.
Always try a different power outlet that you know is working. (Eliminate the easy stuff first!)
If it is out of warranty, try opening up the case, with the power off, of course. Also take this time to inspect the capacitors on the motherboard (they look like tiny soda cans) and check for tops that are bulging, swelling or leaking anything. Capacitors should be perfectly flat on top. If you find these then your motherboard is bad (well technically the capacitors on your motherboard are bad). The bad caps will need replacing to fix (not a job for an amateur). If it passes the visual inspection then it may just be your power supply is bad. Notice that a bad PSU does not mean you are getting no power, just not enough to start and run the computer.
A few years ago a company stole the recipe for making capacitors and started making their own capacitors at really cheap prices. The stolen "recipe" was not complete and not correct so these caps started failing after about 2-3 years of use. Emachines, DELL and Gateway were the computer companies most affected by the bad capacitor issues, although any of the big companies could have the same problem. These bad caps also affected power supply makers.
Since you have tried removing components then it looks like you have narrowed it down to either the power supply or motherboard. If your motherboard looks ok and if you can get another power supply that has an output watts that is greater or equal to the one that you have, try replacing that first.

SOURCE: IBM THINKCENTRE A51 - WON'T BOOT

Simple dear, I think that you can see the power led and hdd led but it wont boot. Right. So switch the system and than open the cabinet and than remove the RAM , CLEAR THE DUST ON THE SLOT AND RAM. THAN REPLUG IT IN THE SAME WAY. PLEASE DO NOT INSERT IT FORCEFULLY BECAUSE IT WILL GO EASILY IF YOU ARE INSERTING IT IN RIGHT WAY. SO CHECK THE POSITON OF THE NOTCH ON BOTH THE RAM AND SLOT OK

AND THAN START THE SYSTEM. THIS MIGHT DEFINATELY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Computer won't come on when pressing power button


Disconnect the desktop computer from the electrical power.
Plug it in, while looking at the computer, and listening for any noises (spinning fans, or lamps that light up) as soon as it is plugged in. Then, press the ON/OFF switch, and watch any lamps, and listen for any fans. If nothing, then the power-supply is the problem.

It dose not runs the hd only power light


If the power light comes on and nothing else works, it could very well be a motherboard problem.
I would suspect this if the hard drive does not start, the fan does not start, and you get no display.

E Machine T2682 powers up but, doesn't work


This sounds like an overheating problem, that is why the fan comes on right away. When you let it rest, it cools off, and works normally for a while.

Most modern PC's are designed to slow down their operating
frequency when they over-heat, and if that is not enough they
will go into suspend, hibernation or (totally off) modes to protect themselves from permanent damage.

Solutions:
Bigger power supply, more and better cooling fans, improved space and airflow around the cabinet, cool the room with aircond.

also better heat-sinks on the CPU and/or the chip-sets.

all relatively inexpensive.
