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.

Re: power in motherboard but cant turn on

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

1) Computer off, unplug it from power.

Hi there, So, my problem is the following: My pc worked well until i changed my cpu cooler, it didint turn on, i hear only two short bips after i pushed the turn on button (during this the leds are...

Sounds like the CPU may not be seated properly, did you remove the processor when you replaced the cooler (Heatsync I assume you mean)?
Try powering down and unplugging. removing the heat sync removing the processor. Re-seating the processor making sure it falls into place. then re add the thermal paste(if needed) and heat sync. Check the memory and video card to make sure they are firmly in and then power back on and see if it will boot.
Another thing you can do is check your motherboards manual or website and there is a description of "beep codes" that you can listen for yours and see exactly what its telling you is wrong.
Good luck

No post & processor fan runs like airoplane, was running ok suddenly power run out then doesnot post or no boots.

Alright, this is your motherboard, it's probrably damaged. It could be a short in one of the compacitor, or damged chipset and the computer is in need of replacing the motherboard in order to get it working agian. But before that, trying reseting the cmos if that might bring it back to life, you can do this but either shorting the clear cmos pins, or simply just taking out a nickel size battery located somewhere (usually lower right) on your motherboard for about 15sec or so, and reinserting it back on. (please disconnected the power cable while doing this) afteward try to starting the computer to see if you get anything, if not, motherboard pretty much trash and need to get a new one. Would probraly preffer buying a new low budget pc, cause it's gonna cost roughtly or almost the same for just a motherboard, harddrive can then be transffer to the new comp.

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.

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 a DFI AM75-TC motherboard, 3beeps, no video

Hi richardbyers, three short beeps means there is a problem with your memory. (Base 64K memory failure). Unplug the power from the PC. Open the case & touch the bare metal on the case to discharge your self.
Remove the memory & reseat it. Leave the case opened & re-connect the power cord & try booting again. If you still hear three short beeps, shut the system down again as mentioned above. Gather some house hold alcohol & a couple cotton swabs. Drip a drop or two onto a cotton tip & wipe the memory's contacts, both sides & do not touch the contacts with your fingers during re-install or cleaning. Blow the memory slots out with canned air or use a clean paint brush. Insert the memory again & connect the power cord. Boot the PC. Try this first. If everything works out than good. If the problem does not clear its self let me know.

Good luck richardbyers!

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 ... )
