Re: laptop help

The "loud beeps" are the BIOS telling you what's wrong. Check the manufacturer and/or manual to find the error code(s).

Diagram put back together

Not to much information from you . Here is a E-Machine assembly for the motherboard .
The power switch is a 2-wire connection to the Motherboard. The 2 pins on the motherboard it connects to will be labeled something like PW. The polarity on it doesn't matter. There will also be a power LED connection. Usually those wires are green and black. Green is positive. There's also a hard drive activity LED with (usually) red and black wires. Red is positive. Hopefully that polarity will be marked on the motherboard. If not, try it one way and if the LED doesn't light up, try it the other way. The power (green) LED should be on whenever the PC is on. The hard drive (red) LED will be on whenever the drive is being accessed. There might be pins on the motherboard for reset. Some computers don't have a reset button. In that case you wouldn't connect anything to it. If your case does have a reset button then connect the wires to the reset pins on the motherboard. Polarity doesn't matter for that.

Hope this helps

Flashing green led light in back of tower

hi, okay you got to be careful here, it's sounds like the power supply has called it a day, disconnect from the mains take the side panel off and get sniffling can you smell a burn smell , no , now pull the power leads from the hard disk and DVD drive if fitted now removing anything that could cause a short on the board , turn it on, do you get video display ?

Please be careful of static shock and mains shock so only look inside once it disconnected from the mains.
Keep me updated please.

My Dell inspiron 518 will not turn on when power button is pressed. Green LED on back of power supply lights and orange LED on motherboard turn on. No fan operation on anything. Thinking it is the switch...

Green LED on PS means it's getting AC power. Orange light on motherboard means it's receiving power from PS but it may not be the correct voltage. The power supply isreceiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to thecomponents. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defectivemotherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, removeany PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memorymodules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see ifany are damaged.

I plugged in my tower and i heard a loud high pitch beeping sound the green led light in the back was on but the power button turns green and the green led light in the back turned off there is no signal...

the green led light is it beside the network cable connector. if it is so, then it is always meant to be like that when you power up your computer. it is not something serious and it is normal.

Computer wont start after power outage but green light is on in the back of computer


All the green LED in the back is telling you is that you have power to the computer.

Are there any other "signs of life"? Do you:

1) See any other LEDs on the front panel or on your CD/DVD drive?
2) See or hear any fans running?
3) See a green LED on the motherboard?

If you answer NO to all of these, chances are you lost the power supply. They run $25-$50 for a decent one. Most computer repair shops stock them.

Hope this helps you. In case you can answer YES to any of the above, please comment back.

Thanks for using Fixya.
