I have a an35n ultra v1.1 motherboard I power on my tower,it does power on but it wont post I dont see anything wrong with cap's cpu was tested and checks out Power supply is good Tryed a new video card...


Hello Phenom, Hi.... to properly run/test a motherboard, you need to make sure this parts are good with no doubt functioning. 1. the power supply, 2. Memory, 3. keyboard, 4. Processor with FAN 5. PC speaker(built on-board or the thumb speaker) and 6. monitor How to test. First remove all motherboard connections. Now reconnect the following. 1. make sure that the power supply 20/24 pin is connected properly to the motherboard (and please test this power supply before making connections. To test independently short green wire to ground and plug the unit. you should see the fan spin) 2. make sure that the 4 pin 12volt power connector is also plug in nice and tight. 3. clean the memory slot using a clean paint brush and the module (DDR/2) terminals (the contacts) using an eraser, 4. connect the keyboard, 5. make sure there is a PC speaker connected. 6. connect the power switch of the front panel, 7. Connect a monitor on the VGA port 8. Power on the PC. 8. Look at the keyboard lights 3 LED momentarily. num lock + caps lock + scroll lock and after several seconds 1 LED light, num lock only. If you reach this part you should also hear a beep. then the POST will appear. If you don't reach this part, start again from the top. do this several times. Still no response? you motherboard is bad.

My conputer ( desktop ) turns on but no image on the monitor it shows a message no sync. i already tested the monitor and it works fine.


there are several things that could be causing this issue. 1) could be the power supply has died. It may get some fan spin but never power the motherboard. This would cause what you are seeing. 2) could be the motherboard. If the video is built into the mother board it either could be the adapter or the motherboard itself. If you get no beeps or drive spin noises it is probably either the power supply or motherboard. ( I would try to test the power supply first, very often that is all the problem is, just happen to my dad's computer) 3) if you get some beeps and lights it could be just the video card. If you have one on the mother board try plugging another into one of the slots.
Those would be my first 3 guesses, good luck

Infocus LP130, Bulb fires then goes out


there is a problem with the power to the front fan from the main board. there are 3 wires going to the fans: one power, one return, and one signal. if the main board reads no signal from the fan's speed, it'll shut down. check the power going to the fans and the signal. you may need to replace the main board.

Laptop not booting up


Ok it's probably not the battery. Try taking the battery out and run it just by the cord, if it works, than return the battery and get a genuine HP one. If it is a genuine one,save it.If fails i'ts the power board or even worse, the motherboard. Now it could be a CPU overheat, look up on google "taking apart HP zT1260". and clean fan and mainboard. if that fails, it's the video card, again look and take apart and see if the graphics card is removable, if it is replace it, if not. You got ripped off and he was bluffing :( Trust me I'm a computer IT worker. Try returning it, if that fails, tell people that he shouldn't be a repuatable seller. Good Luck

Compaq armada m700 wont power up all the way


Sounds like you may have a problem with the internal power supply box? I am not sure but that may be at least something for you to have checked out. If the fan is not spinning this is usually a sign this may be what the problem is. GOOD LUCK!

Power supply fan is makeing a lot of noise


1) Unplug the power cord and give the fan a good cleaning
with a soft paint brush and a vacuum cleaner.

i.e. Let the fans spin up by the vacuum and than bring
the brush against it.

2) If this fails, it's time to replace the fan:

a) Upgrade or replace the power supply enclosure with more
power/higher quality.

This is usually a good investment anyway.

b) Replace the fan only as described below:


Unplug the power cord

Open up the computer (remove sides)

Unplug all the power supply harnesses from
the mother board, drives and chassis fans.

Unscrew and remove the complete power supply
enclosure at back of computer (ie top of the tower)

Vacuum it out as much as possible.

Disassemble the power supply enclosure by removing
more screws and removing the metal cover.

Unplug the fan from the circuit board, remove it
and take it to a computer store/ builder.

buy another fan just like it

reverse the process to put your computer back together.

1) A new power supply should cost $65 to $120
depending on power and quality. The bigger the better.

But make sure it fits mechanically into the existing chassis
and that the AT generation matches ***********-board.

2) A new fan should cost $15 to $25. Makes sure it runs on
the same voltage, and that it is physically compatible.

New Computer Wont Boot!


when you say "the fan makes a noise like its getting ready to spin", which fan...power supply's or cpu? if you answer power supply, then the POWER OK signal is not returning to power supply and it then quickly shuts down to prevent further damage. double check a firm connection to mother board. If you answer CPU, then it becomes far more complicated. Try re-seating the memory chips.
