Hi spikebt,

There could be many things that could stop the board from turning on, Determining if it works is like detective work. What I do, is take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd or otherwise) the CPU, and one bank of memory. (that's not a required eliminate, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. Now, you should get the power supply on, and the cpu. If those don't power up, it's then either one of the five elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, or the motherboard. The next step is to replace each one of the first four to see if you get any change. If no change, then I usually get another board that I can test the first four, and make sure that they work. After that, then I say you have a DOA Board

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks
Mark

My 50" insignia wont turn on wen im plug to light turn on the screen and red light but turn of with clik nose


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Starts to the Fujitsu Screen then nothing


No Actually its fixable

There are a number of issues that can cause this but all of them are hardware related.. Mostly its eighter the hard drive or them main board (bios)

1.) Open up the laptop
You do this by removing the hinge covers, then removing the
face panel(part with the power button)
remove the kwyboard and you wiull have axcess to it..
2.) there is a battery on the main board, simply disconnect it, then remove your laptop battery and hit the power button(switch now) seven times.. Hopefully this will discharge any remaing power and reset your bios..

now try booting, if that works, simply enter your bios(setup) and load the optamised defaults then save and exit..

If that fails, Open back up the laptop again and try disconnecting the hard drive.. If it boots and says no boot disc, then your hard drive is defective and needs to be replaced..

If all that fails you will need to replace your mainboard.. if you are not qualified enough to do this i suggest you take it to a technician,,, Let me know what happens and if you need additional information, just post your question here and i shall reply asap

Black screen


can you see any POST messages when you first turn it on?
ie amount of ram / discs etc..if not try connecting an external
monitor it might be the screen malfunctioning
also is your psu generating the correct voltage ( 18-20v)
if you can , remove ( for 20secs then replace) the internal 5v battery to reset the bios..remove the battery pack and power first though
bottom line is..your mobo could be f****ed or your bios corrupt
best of luck

Acer aspire 5551-2036 wont come on..


I read your description carefully, there is no dought in my mind that the motherboard is the issue,acer is well known for problems in that area and unfortuneately there is nothing more you can do, generally I find they get to hot, cooling fans fail, and numerous other situations.
