Besides Geordie's suggestion which is excellent you may want to check any other server fans are operating correctly and are not clogged up.

Also consider extra cooling. My servers all have extra cooling in a push/pull configuration

Sounds like the PSU is overheating. Some PSU's are designed to keep the fan running to cool it down even after system shut down. I would let the fan run after shutdown to see how long it takes to shut itself off. If there are no environmental issues tat are causing overheating you might want to consider replacing the PSU.

You will have to get your power button unstuck. I do not know what type of button you have but if you would like to at least get your PC on without it instantly turning off, you can remove the power switch connector from the motherboard. You will eventually need to have the switch unstuck, or replaced though.

Computer wont turn on


Is the fan running in the power supply ?
Unplug all the drive power leads and try it.
If it still shuts down, try another PSU, by just plugging it onto the mother board only. If it still shuts down, I suggest it is a motherboard fault. The motherboard turns on the PSU, when you press the on button, it shorts 2 pins on the motherboard to start the power.

Hi
With that scenario i would recommend you check the front panel assembly where the power button is located and also have you tried to reset the CMOS from the motherboard.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA and

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

I have a Compaq Presario SR1830NX desktop, I leave it on all the time, when I got up this morning, it was off, so I pressed the power button, but it doesn't power on, nothing happens.. I checked the power...


step 2 the TECH uses a voltmeter and checks all wires on PSU for correct voltage.

PSU in Desktop dead, my guess fans dead too right>
you never said, what it does inside PC ,except nothing
does nothing mean dead silence?
the fan must run for 1second, then goes off.
a 1 second run tells me the PC power switch told the MOBO to turn on and in turn it tells the PSU to turn on,
the PSU then turns on for at least 1second,and if the voltages are ok
then the PSU stays on, else off goes.

15 and 16?
the 20 pin older supplies those are both ground
but 24 pin ATX pins are correct there.
the voltages are here.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATX


There are 2 causes, of dead power button.
1: the buttons 2 wire cable ends fell off. at button or PC mobo.
2: The PSU is bad.
3: the MOBO is bad.

The mobo can also shut off any PSU, if the PSU fails
or it sees the regulators in the MOBO fail.
the Desktop runs on many power rails.
some in the PSU, others on the MOBO.
THe mobo creates special low voltage for the CPU.

the power good pin, does that #8,
One way to see if the MOBO is overload
is to remove things from it, I start at RAM
lacking a voltmeter, this is very hard to fix any thing electric.
only guessing or pulling objects PC can find shorts.
pull all power cables there, hdd, power, cdrom.
all things that use red/yellow wires.
all SATA cables, all USB , then ram. even a fan can short
a good tech keeps an open mind, and finds why the PSU shut down.
in most cases, the PSU is bad. but not always.

This is a feature, of ATX it keeps you from blowing up say a
$300 microprocessor.... or fancy gaming Video card (have one)?
yes, pull the video card too.

Dell Dimension E510 will not turn on


It could be.

When you switch on after it has been turned off for a while look at the fan on the PSU as you switch on.

If it spins or tries to spin for a very short time then I would indeed suspect the psu.

If however the psu fan does spin for longer and you can hear any beeps then that would be an indication of a different problem.

Should that be the case then check here.

Dell OptiPlex GX620 starts up then shuts down repeatedly


Try this: remove the DMOS battery and unplug the on/off switch plug. It's the one in the corner near the power supply. To be sure follow the cable from the front on/off switch board on back to this plug. Then plug the A/C cord in, if the system boots up fine, then replace the front panel power on/off swith board. Naturally you will not be able to power off the computer using the power switch (since we unplugged it), so you will have to just pull the plug. Hope this helps. Joe
