When powering up, press and hold F2 key and see if you can get to the bios. If not, unit has bad display or power supply. Does the screen display anything during your tests?

    Have you another monitor to test? It's possible the video card has gone out. Is the video on board or seperate card? If the later, try the onboard or swap another card in place. You may have power supply problem if swapping video card and monitor still does not display.

    Good Luck

Why wont it turn on!

Check the power supply... If your desktop power led indicator has the light and your PC doesnt have display. Its means that your PC's hardware had problems.before you turned on the desktop,,, remove the memory card/s and wipe or clean the connector surface of your memory card/s with soft cloth or tissue paper. After you clean,, insert and test them one by one.

Goes to start up then shuts down

It could be overheating. I had this with a laptop and it was caused by the processor overheating where it needed new heatsink paste, this caused it to start up and then shut down almost immediately. It could also be that it is dusty inside the casing I use an air blower once a month to clean mine out. As a last thought, have you listened to the bleep that a PC makes when it is booting up, mine bleeps once, but all PCs are different. Look in your manual or visit the Acer website this should tell you what yours does and if it is making more bleeps than it should then you should be able to find out if there is another problem such as your hard drive failing. New hardware recently added can also cause this sort of problem as well if it is not compatable or you could have a corrupt driver. Hope this helps.

Dell Dimension 3100 bleeps 6 times and wont turn on

HERE is the documentation straight from Dell. It gives the explanation of the beep codes and other diagnostic information like what the lights mean. It's the best place to start.

Computer wont turn on

There are over 20 bleep codes, it sounds like morse code with short & long bleeps, these bleeps are for on board memory, remove RAM from slots & re instal one at a time in another compatable machine to check if RAM is OK, check power pack, also check power switch connection on front panel conection block on mobo

T2893 e machines wont turn on

Since you are looking inside, try this. Trace the wires that come from the power switch back to the Motherboard. The wires from the switch will connect to two pins on the motherboard. Carefully jump those two pins with a screwdriver and the machine should turn on. I would suggest doing this with all drives and cards unplugged first.

Pc wont turn on at all no bleeps or any sound or lights ,i have chacked all connections

in all probability, something must have jammed loose inside when you were shuffling the cpu around. this is if you really checked the plugs and all..

-is your cpu connected to an AVR? if so, make sure the fuse inside is still intact, if not make sure you are plugged into the wall socket.

Machine emits continuous high pitched bleep and power light flashes blue/red

If working OK, probably means that the temperature alarm goes off because is getting hot the PC. I suggest to check why is that happening. All fans working OK? is the CMOS temperature alarm set too low? check your motherboard instructions booklet- It will tell you what the beeps mean probably in the last pages. Good luck
