Try to get to the jumper next to the cmos battery in the mainboard. by changing its position for some seconds while power is off and putting it back , cmos is cleard. start the board hit delete to enter setup and exit saving chages.
ps: if the mainboard bottom was in touch with anything metal from the case then reboots will occure repeatedly and the board might get damaged.

Try reseating the RAM modules, if it still doesn't work, remove the RAM and test the RAM in another computer or at your friendly computer store.

Please help me to identify my problem

The system beeps when you remove the RAM. This means that POST is working correctly and the motherboard may be fine.

Check that the monitor cable connector that connects to the video card isn't loosely connected.

When you insert the RAM, there's no display. This may mean that the RAM is detected but still faulty. Try using another RAM, if you can. Also remove the Video card (if you have a separate video card). Then, re-insert it firmly, and power up the system once again.

If you don't have a separate video card, you should test the motherboard on the bench, that is outside the computer case. Remove the motherboard, RAM and power supply (and the video card if it's separate). Put it on the bench and power it up as shown here:

You'd need to closely look on the motherboard to see which pins are for the power switch (marked as PW-SW, PWR, PWR-SW, PWR-ON etc). Then, short them with a screw driver, for a second, to turn the system ON.

Replace the RAM and the video card one by one, if the system doesn't give any display even on the bench. This way you can find out what is the problem.

Hope that helps,

M4A785TD-M EVO Motherboard will not boot.


From what you are descrbing it sounds like a PSU issue

Please try the following

1) Remove all the wires from the PC
2) Press and hold the power button in for about 10 seconds (yes i know there is no power :) )
3) Plug everything back in and retry, if it still fails the Power supply will need to be changed

The Power supply can be swapped out at any decent PC repair shop and is quite cheap to do

I hope this helps

Main board won't power up

I would start by removing all of the cards on the mobo, add 1 and reboot, rinse and repeat until you find the bad card, even the ram which I would start with myself, I have had an agp card do this to me.
Like to know where the click is coming from. When you say the power supply is fine, how can you be sure? May fail under a load. Not the only solution to be sure, but a good place to start.

Flashing Green Light on Power BESTEC Power Supply

Hi. NO, *********** board is not fried. I am not sure what the problem is but I do know how to fix it. It is usually casued by power outages (even if you have UPS supply).

1. TAKE OUT THE ELECTRICITY LEAD TO THE COMPUTER. Look inside the computer and find the bunch of wires coming from the power supply unit (the box thing at the top with the fan and all those colouted wires!).

2. Find where these wires run into a plastic connector and plug into the mother board. Unplug it.

3. Now plug the electicity lead back into the computer. The light should now stay ON.

4. Plug in the connector again... and boot up. Leave it run a while to convince it!

5. Repeat this process if it does not work first time.

This should fix your problem . It works for me when I get this problem.

Make sure the cpu is seated properly. It should only go in one way. Also make sure you have applied a good thermal paste between the cpu & heatsink. Check and reseat RAM. Then try rebooting. Hope this helps.
