There are several solutions

1. Plugs should be placed correctly
2. The should be power comming into the sockets
3. The voltage switcher should be on the correct voltage... it may be on 220 V while your power in your country would be 110 V so check it

4. Fuse may be blown out

if the 3 dont work contact me again if the fuse may be blown out,, it may be a greater problem

My compaq presario sr1103wm doesn't boot up it

First of all.. try connecting all your peripheals to your PC.(monitor, mouse,keyboard,mic,speakers,etc)

Then u should open your pc and remove BIOS battery and leave it out for few minutes and put it back in...

if that doesnt work u should remove all your RAMS (memory chips next to processor) carefully and start your PC without them, u should hear some beeps, that okay, just a warning, after that put them back in and start again.

if that doesnt work try changing your hard drive with another one, or just take yours and test it somewhere else.

the last u should check your power supply, i see it starts up and then shuts down.. if your power supply is dead u couldnt even start PC, maybe there is a problem with your power outlet, try changing cables and outlets, if still doesnt work test your power supply on other PC.

if none of this works then u probably have issues with motherboard or processor.. then you should take it to service

I have a intel desktop board d102ggc2 motherboard,p4 3.00 2mb 800ghz processor,160gb samsung ide hdd,512mb kingston ram and 350w power supply.the problem is that the computer shout downs

Automatic shutdowns are generally caused by three things:

1. A ground fault on the MB, which can be almost impossible to track down.

2. A faulty powersupply, which I would buy a power supply tester just to make sure.

3. A heat related error, check all your fans and heatsinks to make sure everything is clean and in order.

Did you try the simple fix? First thing is to unplug the computer and then push the power button. Plug the computer back in and then hit the power button again. Did it start? Hopefully. If not and its a desktop, take the side cover off and look at the mainboard. Are the capacitors all flat on top? If any of the capacitors are bulging on top your mainboard is probably going to need to be replace. If not, pull the power connector off of the mainboard. Now take a technicians secret tool (paper clip) and bend it around in a loop and connect the green and one black wire from that connector. This will automatically turn the power supply on if its not defective. This is the simplest of tests for the power supply and will not tell you if you are getting the correct voltages but it will at least let you know if it works at all. Sometimes the fan will come on but the fan will turn slower than usual. This indicates a bad power supply as well. If the power supply is not the problem, plug the power supply back in and unplug all the drives from the mainboard. Now try to power up the computer. If it still doesnt start, remove your RAM and try to power up. If that doesnt work remove all the plug in cards. Try to power up again. If that doesnt work then its probably the Mainboard or CPU.

Hope this helps. If it does please rate it. Thanks...

Raidmax 500w power slowly died, then wont turn back on.

1.-Your CPU fan is working?

2.-Your Power supply fan is working?

If not and following your description I think that you have to replace your power supply.

If you have the light on in the motherboard doesn't mean that your power supply is good.

Check the first to points above and if 1 and 2 are not working

Replace your power supply.

Let me know how it is going!

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Tatung wont turn on

I have v30dmtt 29 inch tatung and had the same problem. I took the power supply out and took it to repair man. He told me it couldnt be fixed. I contacted the manufacturer and had a new one sent. The phone # is 915-771-7554 but you need to call 1-888-482-8864 to get a case #. It costs 70.00 for a new power supply unit.The part # I needed was 6693006610. I hope this helps.

When it's turned on, the light on my monitor doesnt show any signal of power supply

I'm assuming that you mean the green indicator light is not on. This could be caused by a host of problems. Assuming that you know the AC receptacle is live by testing with a standard light the next step would be to unplug the unit and remove the back. Check the fuse for continuity. If the fuse is good you have a problem with the power supply or a short which is keeping the power supply from powering up. The most likely culprit is the Horizontal Output Transistor. Unless you are an electronic tech and know how to check this you probably need to take the unit to a shop for further diagnostics and repair.
