Re: board power up failure

Well the say never answer a question with a question, so i will simply post 2 answers.

1. If you built the PC yourself, you may need to look at power requirements for this particular motherboard and perhaps transplant the board into a case with a larger power supply.
(ie: 300, 350 watt power supply or better )

2. If this is an older PC and someone else built it for you, you may need to consider that power supply units do burn out in time and may need to be replaced.

The power LED simply means there is power coming to the light itself, but may not be enough to sustain an entire motherboard and components etc.
This to me sounds very much like either the power supply is too small or burned out.

The board will not turn on

If the board has a power led then check that is lit.

The first power on self-test (POST) will beep when complete or give you beep codes if there is a detected failure.

If you have a good power supply (+5 volts and 12 volts) and a lit power led on the board and there is no POST beeps at all then that generally indicates a video problem.

Motherboard red light stay on and computer won't turn on. Any ideas on what the promblem might be?

First try shutting down you're system. Than turn the PS off at the rocker switch (Back of PS). Ground you're self by touching the the PS. Remove you're memory and re-seat it. Than boot the system.
Check the standby LED. See if it lights green.
Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage. Anything under 2.4 volts replace the battery. Normally the MB LED displays green. (Standby power).
This means the MB is maintaining / charging the cmos battery. If the battery can no longer maintain charge this will cause the MB LED to turn Red. Built into the mother board is a small switch. When the system is shut down the MB maintains power to the cmos. If the standby switch fails to function correctly the LED will turn Red. Lets hope the problem is the cmos battery. The internal switch can not be repaired.

CPU not boot up

First of all what exactly do you mean by "changed the CPU"? If its the processor? Is only the display not working, since you have said that the fan runs, it means the PC is starting. Check the Keyboard & mouse PS2 jacks. If there is any bent pins in the jacks? If so gently straighten with a pair of tweezers. Also try using a working Keyboard & Mouse from any other PC. If that still does not work, do you see the led lighting up on the MB? Does the MB make beeping sounds? How many? ALso mention the processor you have so that we may be able to help...............sodeep

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.

My pc won't power on

Sometimes a defective / uder rated power supply is causing this. Defective power supply cannot provide the required load leaving your motherboard on standby mode (led green light) Try and check this first by replacing the power supply . Memory is another cause so if you also have spare you can run tests.
