Question about Computers & Internet
I have the Aspire AX1301 Desktop Computer with AMD Athlon II x 2, 4MB RAM, VNIDIA 512MB VGA. The computer does not turn ON unless press the power switch for more than20~30 times... I replaced the Power Supply unit and jumped the power switch wires, but still same problem. I suspect the Motherboard is defective, and like to replace the Motherboard. Can I use the X1200/AX1200 Motherboard for the above AX1301 machine ? I only find this X1200/AX1200 Motherboard in the market. Please advise me. Thank you, Bogie Yanagi Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Try to locate the bad capacitor(s) on the board responsible for the hassle. They usually bulge on top or leak when they go bad.
Any board that fits will work - just get one that is compatible with your memory and processor and you are good to go.
If you check the website for your computer under support you can get the info you need for both your mo bo as well as the proposed one and you can take it from there.

When that happens it is usually the motherboard.
To test parts you need a benchmark.
PSU can be tested using a multimeter.
Motherboard is tested using a tester like this one: PCI Test Card, PC Analyzer, Motherboard Test Card
Ram and CPU (CPU sometimes get damaged) are usually not damaged by this kind of problems, they can be tested mounting them on a working motherboard. For the RAM we also use a RAM tester that costs about $200.
Ensure also that the switch contacts to new motherboard are installed properly. A technician can test cabinet power switch using a multimeter, or carefully bridging with a screwdriver the switch on contacts on motherboard (do not do this unless you are sure about what you are doing)
Test the new PSU on a different socket, when a PSU blows , it may damage the main socket.
Also remember that new power supply units have two connectors. The big rectangular main one (24 pin) and a smaller 4 pins squared one.
As an home user you may not have access to testing equipment, therefore my suggestion is.
Ensure you are using the right PSU.
Ensure that the motherboard is connected to power switch.
Test the new PSU with a multimeter.
Examine the motherboard for blown or leaking components and burnt areas.
If you do not find anything, but the mainboard is still not working, then buy a motherboard-cpu bundle compatible with the PSU that you bought and assemble a new system inside the old cabinet.

Best thing to do is to make sure only the CPU, Power Supply and memory are hooked up to the motherboard and then turn it on and see if you get video. If you don't get video then it probably is the motherboard that is bad and it wouldn't be worth your time spendingany more postage on it.
Also check the capacitors on your motherboard and see if any of them are bulging from the top, if they are then you might want to try and replace those with capacitors of the same value.
My feeling though is that the motherboard is bad and you would need to get a new one.

AM3 Processors are, as you state, backwards compatible with AM2 Sockets. However, this is based on a BIOS update and may not be the case in all motherboards. I would recommend checking with ACER directly, as to weather they have relased an update for this bios to support this function. I have done a search but turned up nothing, but they may not have released it yet. My initial thought was that this seems to be a problem with these OEM boards.

Does your monitor show anything at initial power on and then go blank, if so try booting into Safe Mode...Right click on your screen, select Properties and reset your video settings
