Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes P
c

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

Best option at this point is to contact your computer manufacturer first. If you prefer to replace the parts yourself, I suggest that you replace the power supply first since that is generally cheaper.

Case switch connected to motherboard is messed up. i need a new switch for the case or the configuration for the pins on the motherboard to be able to use a new case/new switch


The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.

It is a Momentary Contact Switch, and is named an ATX power on switch.
This ATX Power On switch I have found fits many computers,

The plastic front panel of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
The pin area on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header.

Tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the computer, or tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the motherboard, and let me see if I can find a Pinout for it's Front Panel header.
(What pins the cables connect to)

I have a Viewsonic VE175b that is having back-light problems. Sometimes it takes up to 30 minutes for the backlight to turn on. Sometimes playing with the On/Off switch fixes the problem. To me it sounds...


yes power supply failing. you need to open it and look for leaking capacitors or crwoned ones. desolder the bad ones and take to a parts shop to get new ones and replace.

I have spilt coffee over my Sony Vaio PCG-FX501 and now it will not boot. I would like to try to repair it but don't know where to start. Can anyone help please?


if you've spilled sugary liquids over electronic devices, the most common problem is power supply. The power is not getting through to your laptop. Try taking out all the power supplyl; ac power cord, battery, and any other external devices (ipods, usb cables, etc.) Next, dry out your laptop. The most effective way, for me at least, is to open your laptop so that the keyboard and screen is perpendicular to each other Then, turn it upside down and let it hang over the desk. This way the keyboard part is resting upside down, while the flat surface is resting on your desk while the screen hangs over the edge

Try another power supply. The motherboard LED is telling you the board is in standby mode. Once you power up & LED goes out it's telling you there is a possible power supply problem.
