Pc will not post all lights including disk activity lights are on

I have an old pc here that has died i can't determine if its the processor or the motherboard (or even the ram) i'm not getting any beeps or indication from the board so i'm assuming theres an issue with the board however the ram could also be causing an issue unfortunately i don't have any spare ddr memory lying about is there any other ways i can determine the cause? the screen went black and the pc never posted again after a reset

The best way to test which component is causing the issue is to strip down you mobo to just the CPU. Then try and boot. If it boots, you know the CPU is okay. Start adding components until you reach the point where it won't boot. The last item added will be the item that is not functioning. If it won't boot with just the CPU, and all of your jumpers are correct, then your mobo is your problem.

Power only stays on in SAFE mode


The first thing to check is whether the fan is working, and make sure the fan and heat sink (radiator) are not clogged with dust. In normal mode, when you have the processor busy with your usual activities, inadequate cooling will trip the overheat thermostat next to the processor. That will turn off the computer to protect it from thermal destruction.

In Safe Boot mode, it's difficult to work the processor hard enough to overheat (most of your programs won't even be allowed to run), so the computer keeps running even if the fan isn't fully effective. (If you succeed in overheating the processor in any mode, it will still shut down.)

There are viruses that disable the operating system, including blanking the video in normal mode. If you suspect that is the case, post back with what you see, including the exact symptoms (does the power light stay on, and when does the system black out?), your operating system version and the anti-virus and anti-spyware programs you use.

How will you know if the processor is still working?


Finding Out the CPU condition whether its working or not
  • 1

    Turn on your PC and listen for a beep. Your computer runs a diagnostic upon startup called "post." Post checks for the basic requirements for your system. This includes RAM, processor and video functions. If those three basic elements are working properly, you will hear one beep from your computer's speaker and you can be assured your processor still works.

  • 2

    If you hear multiple beeps, count the number of beeps you hear as this will help you determine if your processor is functioning properly. If you are running Phoenix BIOS, make sure you count and write down the beep sequence.

  • 3

    Consult your motherboard's BIOS instruction manual; there will be a section on the "post" startup. Five beeps means a processor error for most standard AMI BIOS systems. The number of beeps you here will tell you the problem your computer is experiencing that is preventing it from booting up. Once you know how many beeps to look for, you can safely determine if your CPU is still functioning properly.

    Just brought new memory for my acer aspire sa90 desktop,now my computer doesn't seem to turn on


    i assume computer was starting correctly before? this is older computer and it is using sdram memory, locket on them sometime do not clip in correctly.

    1. switch off computer
    2. remove power cord
    3. remove side wall
    4. remove sdram
    5. check sdram orientation and type, if they correctly align with registering notches
    6. release lockets to max, (outward from slot)
    7. re-insert correctly oriented sdram till lockets close into sdram stick (you may give them bit "help" to close in position)
    8. re-connect power
    9. start computer

    if copmuter start normally, that meant tha tyou fixed the problem, if not, switch computer off and remove power cable, check motherboard power cable insertion, and repower again.

    if computer start, lose cable was the problem.

    if computer still do not start, remove new memory and re-nstall old one, if computer start, new memory will be a culprit.

    if computer no fan "jig" and no light blink, remove all power supply cables from motherboard and connect in it's place new power supply, to exclude power supply problem.

    if computer start with new power supply, old power supply will be the problem,

    if computer do not start, and no joy with checking, but fan is running, including on the processor, this will indicate either, motherboard or processor died... if that is the case further testing will be required to determine which is exact cause. as in home situation there are usually no motherboard testing equipment, you need to go to more difficult path of changing the processor, checking video and haveing second computer on which you can test all of that...

    replacement board for that processor on ebay cost from about $0.99 plus postage. if you need any further advice, please re-post adn if i am on line today, i will provide you with further procedure how to test your video, motherboard and processor.

    if you find my advice useful, please do not hesitate to leave your comment and vote 4 for me, thanx!

    Fan running, HDD light solid, no display


    I assume there are no post codes (beeps)?

    Pull everything including the video card, leave only the RAM and CPU installed.

    Try powering it on, You should hear a long beep, then some short ones to tell you the video card wasn't detected.

    If you still don't get any post beeps, try resetting the BIOS, and re-seat your RAM.

    If it still doesn't post it could be a system board mounting issue, bad system board, bad RAM, bad CPU, or bad Power Supply
