Power in motherboard but cant turn on

We had a power short in the house and when the power came back on the computer was running it hadnt been before the short. i turned it off without turning the monitor on and since then i havent been able to power it on again. i replaced the PSU which hasnt helped, the motherboard is getting some kind of power because the d14 light comes on. and if i press the on button and then turn off the psu the cpu and mobo fans spin for a second, so power is definitely getting in.

Try removing the memory and turning the system on. If it starts to beep you may have faulty RAM.

    It's quite rare that the CPU would be faulty, even from a power spike. My bet is with the motherboard. Might still be getting some power but the voltage regulator that powers the CPU could be fried. Definitely cheaper to try to replace the motherboard, anyting that is socket A will take your 2400+ and RAM so for about $50 you can get a motherboard.

Cant get pc to start up and stay running

The easiest way to check the board is to get a small screw driver and short 2 pins with it systamatically until the power comes on, give it a try, once you have found the 2 pins that turn the power on, find the power button connection and put it on the 2 pins you shorted with the scwrew driver, then test the switch at the front, it should now work.
Without the model no of the motherboard this is the only suggestion i can make. hope it helps and post back and tell me if you get it going. Jimnuggats.

I have a rampage extreme motherboard. when i try to turn the power on the computer there wil be a flash of power and then the computer does not turn on. it started out when i was on the computer, fully...

The motherboard is probably bad for some reason. It works like this: you press the power button which sends a short to 2 pins on the motherboard requesting the power supply to turn on. If there is a short somewhere on one of the power leads then the powersupply cuts off automatically. This is why you see the fans start to run and stop. The power supply is probably good but the motherboard is bad.
You can test the power supply by placing a piece of wire, use a paper clip, between 2 pins on the power supply connector. Unplug the connector from the motherboard and look for the only GREEN wire in the connector. There will be a BLACK wire on each side of it. Using a paperclip, bend it and stick it into the green and one of the black wires pins. The power supply should come on with the fan running in the power supply.

I have some problems with the display on laptop averatec 3200 the computer is working fine, but i cant see anything on the display. the display is compleately white wen i turn on the laptop.

Problems are possibly due to wires running through the hinges on the laptop which may cause a connection problem/short. Your right. Over time the hinges which house the wires from your screen to your motherboard can wear out causing the monitor wires to have shorts. You may need to contact a professional to replace the screen or to rewire the set.

Gateway desktop 506gr power issue narrowed down?

That was pretty unclear.  Is there a kind of burning symptom that suggests a short to you?  It seems to me that what happened is that either there was a power outage and your system thus shut down...all you'd have to to would be hit the computer's power button to turn it back on...or a fan somewhere died and therefore the system won't power up until you replace or repair that.  At least get a vacuum in there and brush out the dust so you can work.

What happened when you got a simplified system that 'worked'?  Was the power supply's fan spinning, at least?  What's the green light on, anyhow?

One problem, followed by another, followed by another

it seams that the motherboard has some power problems. Check on the motherboard for burned or blackened components, or for capacitors that are looking like they are going to blow (inflated on the top), u can do the same to the power supply.
If so change it !
Also maybe the power of the house has problems that the computers power supply cant handle (that can ruin the motherboard or other components )
U can also try to isolate the motherboard from the case (there might be a short between the motherboard and the power supply through the case metal ... )
