Mother board trouble

I recently built a computer for my mom, and it was about a year ago. But it has been working ever since but now it wont power on. i have tried replacing the power box but that wasnt it cause the other one i got had a light on the back of it and so i know that is getting power. I tried replacing the power switch and that didnt work and i took everything apart and cleaned it with the can of air and that didnt work any suggestions?

I had this problem once and found that I had a short in one of the drives. It would trip a circut breaker in the power supply. Thus I could never get it to power up. I unplugged all of the drives, then plugged them back in one at a time to isolate the bad drive. (rebooted each time starting with only the hard drive.) I'm not saying that this is your problem, but it may be something that simple. This was after I tried replacing the power supply and found I still had the problem. Hope this helps.

    it is not a power box. It is the component parts near the keyboard socket.if you are new to troubleshooting you cant do that soldering the parts.You will need hot air soldering to remove the surface mounted parts.if you cant do this, you need to replace new motherboard.

Computer power supply does not work

Need to know how old a computer it is as over the years the power supplies' use different methods of starting.

On newer computers the power supply is connected to the mother board by a 20 or 22 pin connector. The power button on the computer is just a momentary switch to start the computer. Make sure the large connector is firmly seated in the mother board. If you are comfortable with doing that have someone else check it. You do not want to damage the connector or mother board. You need to have some sort of anti static device conntected to your body to avoid any static discharge that could damage the mother board.

Laptop charger melting

The cause was high resistance in the charger, probably from a poor solder joint. It is likely your laptop was not damaged. You can use another charger.

Whirpool quiet partner dishwasher seems to have no power

Ok there is a thermal fuse mounted on the control board that shuts down when it gets too hot. Did you run a sanitize cycle? Even if customers dont use the sani cycle which i recommend the fuse may open due to poor wire connections. The new fuse kit comes with a new harness and new connectors. Check the old fuse to be sure its bad. Dont remove the connectors from the new switch at all - dont disturb them and they will work better.
