Re: board power

Do you have any components compatable with the broken motherboard spare or in another desktop? try booting the motherboard with just a power supply, monitor, RAM and CPU. You may also need a video card if your motherboard does not have an integrated one.
If it shows no signs of life with other components that are know to work connected to it, then its a fair bet its dead.
Most hardware fault diagnosis especially with desktops is just a proccess of elimination.
Let me know if you have any luck chashole.

Asus P5 GC-MX Board proccessor does not get power what parts should be changed

First, check if the connection from the power supply to the motherboard is properly inserted. If it's loose, that may be whats causing you to receive no power from the supply. Check the wall socket to make sure it works, as well as checking if everything is plugged in properly. If you are still getting no power, then it maybe time to buy a new power supply. If there is some indicator of power to the mother board , such as an LED or light that turns on when plugged in, there may be a problem with your power switch.

My unit won't power up - power supply is good and not sure about the on switch any help would be appreciated -- motherboard is in an old HP Pavlion 700 case

Remove the little watch type battery from the mother board check the voltage with a meter should be about 3.5 volts. Then replace the battery on the mother board. This battery holds memory within the Bio chips on the mother board, if there was a problem that it sensed for turn on it will be in the Bio's memory, and maybe not allowing the computer to turn on, by removing the battery for a few minutes, the Bio's forget they had a problem, if you will. and the computer might turn on.
If you have all the voltages to the mother board from the power supply, it should turn on.
unless there is some reset circuit interfearing with it turning on. Or you might have a blown fuse on the mother board, I would check everything I could, and try everything I could, and if you still cannot get it to turn on take it to a computer shop and spend a few bucks for them to fix it.

Gateway T2838 with Intel 4000812 motherboard wouldn't power up. Replaced mother board and power supply. New components also won't power up. Both boards have green ready light lit on the board and both...

Check ALL your USB ports.. If any of the USB ports have shorted contacts or if the 5v rails are shorted to ground, the power supply WILL NOT switch on.. Also, if any of the items connected to the board have a supply rail grounded, again the board will not allow boot up. Unplug everything from the board and the drive power connectors too, except the power connector to the board and the front panel switches and try to switch on, if it still will not boot, check and recheck the USB ports and all power connectors, if it does, switch off and plug another item in, then switch on again. When you get to the item which prevents the board from switching on, thats where your problem lies. Dont forget, plug things back in one at a time, including the power plugs to the drives and try and power up between each item, and dont forget to power down after each item has been checked..

I have a foxconn p4m800p7ma motherboard everything is connected but it will only blink the lights twice when i hit the ON switch and the cpu fan spins for a second then this a dead motherboard?or...


There could be many things that could stop the board from turning on, Determining what is wrong is like detective work. What I do, is take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd or otherwise) the CPU, and one bank of memory. (that's not a required eliminate, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. Also, if your going to load a ide drive, make sure you set your pin setting correctly on it. Now, you should get the power supply on, and the cpu. If those don't power up, it's then either one of the five elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, or the motherboard. The next step is to replace each one of the first four with another to see if you get any change. Also, on the drive, try a different cable to make sure it's not that, If no change, then I usually get another board that I can test the first four, and make sure that they work. If after that and you have tested all of the components and they all work, then it's save to say you have a Dead Board
Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Wont load up

If everything is working properly, then yes, those lights are normal. Many motherboards have LEDs on them to show standby power. You probably didn't notice them until you worked on the thing.

Power LED on but no boot up

it could be your power switch, veriy that it isnt the power supply by

1.) un-plug it from the main board
2.) look at the main board connector(one coming of the power supply)
3.) you should see green wire and next to it a black one
4.) using a paper clip bridge the too wires
5.) if it works proceed to net step if not get a new power supply

to check case switch and board switch

1.) plug in power supply to main board
2.) look at the pins where the power button connects to
3.) using a metal object (blade screw driver) bridge the pins

if the board should start up>
then its your power button on the case that is bad, you can try to repair it, chage it or buy a new case,

if it doesnt work.
1.) ensure that jcms(jumper to flash the bios) is set correctly
2.) unjack each drive one at a time to see if any is causing stalling
3.) get a new main board

Faulty Power Supply?

Take off the center heat sink and check the coprocessor. I bet you find it is black as it has overheated and fried the board. From what i have heard from my other techie friends they state that the power supply puts out to much power for the board to take and as you can tell... your problem and mine with the above stated board is that we need to replace it and throw away the old one.

if it does not respond at all......i mean no fan no lights no anything.....then double check that your power supply is good.....if it is and you are sure your chasis connectors are placed on the proper pins then you could have a bad motherboard or cpu.......of course more troubleshooting should be attempted before drawing this conclusion (removing one part at a time, etc.) but no power is never a good thing.
