No the motherboard is not dead becouse when you press and hold the power the computer truns on then you should turn it on many times then it work after a while

I have a emachine that powers ou, power pack fan, cpu fan but not the hardrive. It shut down and now won't start up. No beeps

Unplug from AC, open the case, clean if necessary, reseat the memory mods, use Electronic Contact Cleaner spray on contacts, plug in, push the on/off button. Does it begin to start, and in a few seconds completly shuts down? No LED's , no fans, nothing? Sounds like a PSU failure. Mine went out in 6 years.

What causes red led on starting?

Remove Power Cord then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then put the cord back in and try to start it.

When you press the Power Button are you hearing the fans run, the disk drive running, the cd drive click and the light on it comes on for a second or two?

Anything shows up on the LCD Screen?

If you press the power button and absolutely nothing is happening then you most likely have a bad power supply.

If you press the power button and you start hearing beep sounds or blinking lights in a continuous pattern (ex. 1 long followed by 2 short) then you have a motherboard issue. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the technician what is going on with the computer.

First check the power source and if ti gets power...Check also the battery. If it seams to have power but it just do not start ..than check the ram memory ...and also the CPU fan ..Usually if it seam to have power but when you hit the on button do not make any sound at all ..not even the fan ..than it is either the cpu corrupted or the motherboard..but mostly the cpu ..cause when the motherboard is out of order...usually it do not show power at all on the power led and hdd led....
If it starts the fan ..but no image at may consider a video card issue ...but for now..try to open it and see if the ram memory is not to blame ..or the cpu ..cause after you eliminate a power issue ..these 2 are the only one capable to make it act this way ..

Hi. my CPU (system) does not start. When i press the power button, the light turns on for a second then nothing happens.

Does the power supply fan spin when you switch it on ??

Do you hear a"posting" beep??

Does the CPU fan start to spin??

If no to all of these probably dud mobo.

I had a loud fan noise coming from inside my desktop box for a while. One day (& ever since,) when I went to turn the box on, absolutely nothing happened: no fans, no BIOS, no LEDs. I made no config...

This may work however i think by ignoring the sound of the Fan you might have destroyed the cpu and the motherboard.If you can try the processor in another machine you might just have to replace the motherboard only.
Good Luck

Hp v6630em fails to start when the "on" button is pressed. It is connected to the power supply and the blue lights are illuminated. I can hear a whirring sound for a couple of seconds and...

This sounds like either a fan or CPU/motherboard problem. Either one is going to be expensive to fix, the fan less so than the CPU ($15-20 vs $100-$400).

However, before we assume that the laptop is dead, remove the battery and attempt to boot up just using AC power only. If the problem persists, put the battery back and remove the AC power, and try booting up just on battery. If the problem happens either way, it's the fan or the CPU/motherboard/.

I know this isn't what you wanted to hear, but that's what's happening. A decent local repair technician (not a big mass-repair place like Geek Squad) should be able to replace the fan with labor around $50 or so. The CPU/motherboard replacement will run at least $100-$150 in labor, plus cost of parts.

Obviously, try the fan first. You can pick them up on eBay and that way you won't be charged "extra" for the technician "finding" the fan for you. You should only have to pay them labor costs.

Obviously, if the fan doesn't fix the problem, it's the CPU/motherboard. At that point, I'd cut my losses with the fan (maybe even relist it for sale on eBay) and go buy another laptop. You'll pay $300-$500 just to fix it, or you can buy a new one for not much more, with warranty.

Hope this helps you out - I'm here to answer any additional questions you might have :)

Acer travelmate 292elcI problem starting

Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. When this happens it usually suggests that the CPU/system board has failed. If the laptop is still under warranty I would suggest taking it back because this is something that will be covered and they should be able to fix it or replace the laptop itself. If not you may have to pay to have the system board/CPU replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. Si :)

Either the new power supply you purchased is not functioning correctly. But, assuming it is now that you are getting some form of power to your PC, it is very likely the motherboard. Whatever fried your old power supply (or it could have just been the power supply itself) most likely fried your motherboard in the process. Probably not the CPU since the MB can't even post.
