Red power light on, making a noise but won't switch on/off

I have a red light on the power led but it won't switch on/off. Was just working on the PC and it just went off. It appears to be making a noise (fan?) but nothing on screen. Have tried turning off at plug, have checked connections and have tried holding power button in but nothing seems to be working. Can you help as am a bit stupid with these technical things!!

Won't turn on

Check the power lead and the mains outlet.
If these are OK and when you press the power switch on the computer and the power LED does not light up then most likely the switch mode power supply is faulty.
Switch mode power supplies contains dangerous mains voltage and I do not recommend a DIY repair. Just purchase a new switch mode power supply, make sure the wattage of the power supply is equal or greater than the old power supply.

I have a dell inspiron 560 with 6 wires from the front panel power switch. which wire is yhe positive for each set? the color for each set are as follows power switch colors are 1) blue and brown 2)power...

Led's only work one way, so it does'nt matter what colours they are. The led's that they connect to will only work when the plug is the correct way. You wont do any harm if they are wrong, you just turn them round. Plug them in one way and if the led for the hard drive does'nt come on then it's the other way. Same with the power light. The power switch when pressed just makes a momentary connection across 2 pins, so it does'nt matter which way, it's just like touching the pins quickly with a piece of metal.

I have installed a new motherboard in an acer case. The power cable from the switch on the front of the case will not connect to the board. Can anyone help? Thank you

You should read the motherboard manual, for cabling:
1. Power SW
2. Reset SW
3. HDD led
4. Power led - and power led +
5. Speaker

Cabling scheme, also written on the motherboard.

If the Power SW not installed the switch on does not work.
If the Reset SW not installed the switch reset does not work
If the HDD led
not installed the hard drive light (red) is not lit
If the Power led (+/-) not installed the power light (yellow) is not lit
If the Speakers are not installed, when the computer is on the beep sound is not heard.

I hope this information helps.

Hp compaq dc 7100 , my problem is that as i start my pc than 4 beep with time interval 0.2 sec with led than after 0.5 sec it start again , remain continously

Are they Long Beeps? Does the RED led light on the front show up?
If there is no RED led light blinking, then the problem is your RAM.
If there IS a RED led Light showing up, then the problem is your Power Supply.

Power light on& status light on

The power red led indicates that your device is "power on" , but the status led still red and turn to green if the device ( video input )received video signal ( from DVD player, Laptop etc. ) .

Power up problem

Hi, you most probably have a sticky on/off switch on your case. Turn the power off. Remove the side cover, trace your wires from the front switch to the mobo, identify witch is the power switch [this is usualy marked with PWR or PWS on the board and also on the wire from the switch. Disconnect this wire then turn on the power and use a fine screwdriver to bridge the two pins on the board, if all works properly then replace the switch Regards mistyman

Motherboard pin config

All motherboards have a print beside the pins, Speaker= "speak", "pwr s" =powerswitch, "HDDled" red light on front, rst = reset switch [not allways used] "pwr led" Green led, the case wires are usualy marked on the plug ends with the same , "hdd" "reset" and so on. The power switch will work both way's around however the led lights wont. You will not hurt anything if they are the wrong way around, they just wont work so if you dont get lights just reverse the polarity. If by chance the case wires do not have labels the just trace them to the case front panel and plug them into the corresponding board pins. Regards mistyman
