Power On trouble with Computer

Earlier this week the power supply died requiring me to change the 400 W to 550 W and even thought the motherboard is getting power (the lights come on and couple of times the computer started only later it shutdown automatically without any symptoms (burn smell or any faulty connection). I have tried several times to connect few peripherals to the motherboard and startup but the power comes on and within 2-4 seconds the system shuts down unexpectedly. Kindly help me to resolve this issue -

thank you,

If don't you have any beeps check maybe the power button stack.
If the power button pressed for four seconds then the computer normaly shut down.

Replaced my Antec True 380S power supply with an Antec SL450 power supply (Antec box with Intel D875PBZ motherboard). I reconnected the new power connectors to the peripherals (correctly, I believe) and...

Thoughts: There are two connections from the power supply to the motherboard. One has 24 pins and the other has 4. Make sure they both are correctly (and fully) inserted.
Try powering the computer on with all the devices disconnected (hard drive, CD, etc).

My computer froze up one day. The green light on the mobo stays lit all the time now. I've replaced the cpu, RAM and tried different video cards, but it still won't boot up. I even got a different ASUS...


I think you have just about covered everything by testing the hardware out on a different system. The only vital thing that you haven't checked is the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

Get another power supply of the same type and try that in your system as faulty PSU's can cause these problems even though the motherboard is showing that power is being received, it could be showing a false positive.

Please let me know how you get on and if i can provide anymore assistance.

The wattage rating is the maximum power draw that the power supply can supply. If the system only requires 200W, only 200W will be delivered by the power supply. It is recommended that the power supply rating be higher than what you expect to draw so that you never draw more than 80% of the total capacity. In other words, if you expect to draw 240W total, use a 300W power supply.

So, yes it is fine.

PC won't boot up.

recheck all connections, make sure the switch on the back of the power supply (if it has one) is set to the on position. there is a chance the motherboard has failed. with the power off examine the capacitors on the motherboard, especially the ones near the cpu. if they feel rounded on the top they have failed. unless you are good at soldering... consider buying a new motherboard.

Concise Question, Poweredge 1800 powerup failure

It is definitely the PSU that's not working properly,because defective motherboard should still receive the 12V. you can use a desktop standard power supply to check if the server runs fine, even a cheap one is ok for a test run. they sell also cheap (about 15-20$) PSU tester, definitely worth when working with servers and WS.
the Power supply fan might have a dedicated rail coming from the thermal sensor(thermistor.)this is why it can run even with bad 12V rail.

When I turn on the power to my laptop, tries to turn on but dies

According to me, you should check your power adapter. I think it is not working and is not producing sufficient power supply for your laptop. And due to this, your laptop have not been charging.

Will not accept new agp video card

Did you try and change the power supply? Maybe the power supply is faulty since u say it keeps rebooting. Since you do not see anything on the screen (the bios is not executed, could b a problem with the power supply. Do you get any beeps?)

Does not power up

I think you've done a good trouble shooting job, and proved that the board is dead.

Light is solid yellow on front switch, won't boot

if you are certain the power supply is good(try it in another machine) and its completely connected it sounds as if your motherboard is going bad, there is a 5-volt supply in your power supply that does not turn off when the system shuts down, its called 5-volt standby, this runs some small circuits on the motherboard that monitor the power switch, when its pressed the circuit starts up the whole power supply. thats how we can power off the system with software. usually its a custom chip and some components, but without the schematics of the motherboard and the replacement parts and the ability to de-solder and solder on a multi layer board its not usually repairable by the end user.

the system memory and processor are not even used in this part of the system startup, they come into play after the supply is up and stable and supplies the power good line to the motherboard.

make sure the supply is good, and all connections are making contact, that none of the pins have backed out of their housings when being plugged in and that there are no cracks in the solder joints where the power connectors attach to the motherboard.

Boot Issues

I've seen the same problem fixed it with new power supply. The old one was losing full power.
