PC wont boot after being turned off

Power switch illuminates, changes to Battery symbol if and when disconnected from mains supply. On boot the HD occupied indicator flashes once and it all stops working.

Disconnecting power and removing battery did not solve this problem as advised in another post. Cant blue screen it and i have no access to CD/DVD drive, no floppy disc.

Anyone any ideas??

Looks like an overheating problem
Using a vaccum, **** the dirt that may be accumulated on the fan on the back of the laptop.
Try to turn it on again.
If you don't see any improvement, then you must clean the heatsink, and apply special heat release compound on processor.
That will do.

My xbox power box is displaying the amber light and the xbox wont switch on is this related??


An orange light is illuminated on the power supply for one of two reasons. Either the console is turned off or the power supply is disconnected from the console. The orange light means that the power supply is in standby.
Even if the console is turned off, the power supply light may still be illuminated orange. This can occur if the power supply cord is not fully inserted into the power socket of the console.

Gateway dx 4320 wont turn on


It could be a few things:

a faulty power switch - you say that you've changed the PSU, but did that include the switch?

it could also be a Faulty Motherboard or CPU. If either of them are fried, you won't see anything come on either.

I'd suggest checking the switch first because that's the cheapest and easiest to replace

My compaq wont boot past the compaq logo all it does just sit their and i try to hit esc. f1 or f10 it still does nothing it used to boot up every 2 or 3 days after it off a while and now i change the cmos...


several people have reported the same issue, the only person I can see who solved it was to do a complete windows xp installbut I am not sure how he achieved this if the machine wont post. First thing I would check is how secure any add on cards or RAM sticks are, disconnect your machine from the mains, take the side off, touch the casing to discharge any static you may have in your body, then go around the mainboard, reseating each part. Just take the part out and put it back in again, It could be that something has been knocked and isnt connecting properly.

When you boot,go into the bios. In the main section see if your drive is listed.
If not, turn off machine, open unit, check power and data cables
Harddrive are blue data cables. Also check to see if HD is slave or master. Jumper switches on HD. Clse unit and boot up into bios
in the main you should see you HD
in boot sequence.. see if you c:/ is in the list
bios will tell you how to put in list if not there
close and reboot

System wont power on unless mb power connector on mb is reset


by mb pwr connector do you mean the swich on the pc case that you press to turn it on or do you mean the large block connector form the power supply ?

If you mean the case switch then you have a faulty one that is sendinga constant signal and locking up the power supply

Pc wont power up


Is there an on off switch on the back out the computer next to the main power socket? If so move it to the on position.
Check the mains lead and make sure it is firmly inserted in the socket.
When you press the front panel on button and it doosn't boot up and there is no light indicating power, then you have a faulty switch mode power supply.
Remove the switch mode power supply and replace it with a new one with the same wattage or greater wattage.

Compaq Presario sr1000(sr1430NX) will not stay powered on


Hi!

Please check for the cables coming into the motherboard from the power supply. Also try and check for any loose cables.

If that doesn't help then please get your power supply changed as its faulty.

Please rate this solution.

Thanks

Might be stuck in hibernation. Pull the battery and ac power for about 1 hour. Replace and try to boot. If fails, pull the battery and try to boot just off ac power.
