Hi,

Remove your ram and put it back again. Sometimes this helps, otherwise check if your power supply is giving enough power to run the board and all of the components.

Hope this helps!

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 or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

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

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Can you tell if the flashing is a pattern. count the flashes ( long and short) in a cycle. This will provide an error code to hopefully discover the problem.
You may also try removing and reseating the RAM and Video card, blowing out the connectors with compressed air before reseating.. Also look closely at the components on MB for any signs of swelling, leaking, burning etc. I suspect the MB.

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok


First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Get a boot disk and try booting using disk. If it boots the mother board works. If you boot to a:\ prompt then type dir C:\. If your hard drive is working you should see a list of files. if not replace hard drive and load new OS.

powersource is good.motherboard might be the problem.harddrive can be tested by putting it in
another computer and see if it boot up.to test the mother board unhook the cd drives and harddrive.turn
on the computer and see if the gateway logo comes on.if it still does the the samething with everything unhooked
then it might be the bios.you might have to flash the bios and reinstall it.to do this i recommend you take it to a
shop.if the comp runs with everything still unpluged and stops then you know that you have a wrong
setting on the harddrive or cd drive.if you got two of anything make sure that you have a slave or master.if you nned me to
write a guide email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com or if you got anymore questions.

I have a emachine PC. PowerSupply blew up. changed it still down


Dear,

ELECTRIC SHOK OR IMPROPER EARTHING IS DAMAGE POWER SUPPLY,MOTHERBOARD,PROCESSOR,RAM
HOW TO CHECK IT.

(WHEN CHECKING KEEP CAUTION :- REMOVE HARD DISK DRIVE POWER SUPPLY SOCKET)

1. check power supply watt 400/450 and same another power supply install and check it. if power supply change and system is working ok so problem in your power supply.

2. check CMOS cell on motherboard,(3 volt)

3. Bfore power supply changing check on mother board any capasitor is like as damaged or not.
OR check main chipset ic is marked as intel.whenpower on it is very hitting or
normal)if very hitting require to repair your motherboard.(intel chipset ic near cmos cell or pci slot,)
4. checking of ram on other pc (working or not)(one beeps coming or not,if one beep coming ram is working ok)

First check to see if a drive died. Unplug all the drive Floppy, hard and dvd or burns. I have come across many time that a drive will die and keep motherboard from booting. Being that you say you get a green light on the motherboard shows that the power suppy is providing some power. But for some reason the internal self test is faulting the power suppy. I have not come cross any bad power supplies killing a motherboard. But I have come across power supplies killing drives. The power switch is a normal open switch so the only time you be able test continuity on it is if you hold the switch in, or the closed position.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?

Power Green Light Flashing HP Desk Top PC m7250n


During a power outage their is a surge when power come back on the grid (surge can be caused by lighting strikes akso). This surge trips the internal procters inside the power supply to protect the Mother Board, hard drive, processor and fans and any device that pulls wattage from the power supply. Since all these power using devices are trying to pull power at the same time to boot the computer back up one ends up with a loop of surge thrugh the power supply with a protective trip, reset, surge again and trip again. This will continue in this loop as the computer is trying to boot all the devices at one time (Mobo, Hd, processor, cooling fans and other devices). Simoly, more power wattage is being demanded than the protectors will allow at one time causing a protective shutdown followed by a restart followe by a protective shutdown in a continious loop.
The normall sequence for a boot is to boot the board, processor and fans followed by a boot of the hard drive, and other boot devices once the board is energised, NOT all devices at the same time, as this results in an overload and trips the protectors. This protective loop is indicated by the blinking light as the power is turned on and then shut down for protection as the wattage pull is over the demand that the protectors will allow.
Blinking light indictes you are in the protective loop.
SOLUTION: 1. Disconnect the Mother Board connector, with the computer unplugged, this will allow the power supply to reset at maximum wattage upon reboot.
2. Disconnect the Hard Drive power connector and ay boot device power supply cables, this will allow the Mother Board, processors and fans to boot without an overload of the protector inside the power supply.
3. Plug in the computer and the indicator light will be solid green indicating that it is reset and out of the loop.
4. With the computer pluged in and the Power Supply fully energised, plug in the Mother Board. The computer will now boot, and the processor fan will come on and the cooling fans.
5. After computer has rebooted, shut the computer back down and connect the Hard Drive power cable and any other power cablis that were unplugged.
6. Reboot with all cables connected and you are up and running again.

POWER SUPPLIES HAVE AN INDICATOR LIGHT FOR A REASON.
REMBER - BLINKING LIGHT IS AN OVERLOAD OF THE PROTECTORS AND ELLIMINATING THE OVERLOAD SOLVES THE PROBLEM AND THAT THE POWER SUPPLY IS WORKING AND CONVERTING POWER.
NO LIGHT MEANS NO POWER OUTPUT AND THAT INDICATES THE POWER SUPPLY IS NOT FUNCTIONING AND NEEDS REPLACED.

Hope this helps everone with power outages and lightining strikes. It is a rather common problem and can also occure when building a computer and one missmatches the power supply with the board wattage needs. If the board wattage needs are greater than the power supply output you will get stuck in a potective loop eventually. WHEN BUILDING A COMPUTER ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE POWER SUPPLY CAN PRODUCE MORE WATTAGE THAN YOU CAN CONSUME AT THE MAXAMUM LOAD.
Have a great computing experiense.
