I don't know how much expertienc and the amount of confert you have doing this, but anyways, try taking your motherboard out of your case, and find the front panel headers(usally near the bottom right of the board, find the one labeled as pwswitch (or something similar) and use something to short the two pins,. nothing else while having CPU Powersupply ect,. or if you have a spare power button/case try that as well, if you can't fighure it out, DO NOT TRY IT and contact me and i will see about getting a picture or something

Best of luck,
Mitch
P.S. if this works then don't forget to rate me, if it doesn't work then contact me and i will see about something else(don't rate me until it is fixed or i give up(

Disclaimer: By trying this you herby release me of any liability If anything happend due to user error i assume no resonsability for injury to self, others, home or property. If you do not feel confertable doing it, DON'T, then contact me

PC Power Issue


If it only comes on when you move the cables but not if you don't then one of the cable connections (pins) are loose or internally broken. Unplug it and check each cable/pin for any loose connections, bent pins etc.

When I turn on my machine, I get 3 beeps and my monitor tell me no signal, the model is a T5026 emachine, please email me any suggestions


Hello,

First use the following steps:

Turn off the system and disconnect power cables
Press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Reconnect power cables and try to turn it on.

If it remains same, the next step will be to:
Turn off the system and disconnect power cables
Open the case and re-seat memory modules


If you have more than one modules installed, try to test the system with a single module at a time.

Make sure the switch on the back of the power supply is set to the position that has the line on it. If you still can't get any power, then try another known good power supply, if you still don't get any power then you know the motheroard is bad.

Computer doesn't switch on!


The troubleshooting techniques you might try is swapping them out with another monitor and keyboard. If they work then you know its the monitor and keyboard if they don't work then the motherboard is bad. The ports for the keyboard and monitor are integrated into the motherboard. So you can't fix the ports, the whole motherboard has to be replaced.

Pc wont turn on


1. Remove all USB devices such as printers, mp3 players etc etc.
2. Remove the power-cable and the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
4. Put the power-cable back in but not the battery and none the USB devices.
5. Turn the computer on

Also check the condition of the USB ports if it doesnt work and the fuse. If this doesnt work then I would recommend a repair.

Acer Aspire 7004 wmsi Will not start.


When you press the power button does anything happen? such as lights or LED's illuminate?

You could try the following -

1. Make sure there is nothing plugged into the computer (USB devices or memory cards etc etc).

2. Remove the power cable & the battery

3. Press the power button for 30 seconds

4. Insert the charger but not the battery and try and start it up.

If that doesnt work check the USB ports for damage and the port where the charger is plugged in aswell.

If they are damaged or it still wont start it will probably need repairing.
