did you check the power supply if it is working?.look for the exhaust fan if it is rotating. then look at the mother board if the fan at the processor is also rotating if not check the supply first at the PSU if ok.
Hello derick, Unfortunately power surges have been known to have some pretty nasty effects on your computer hardware. If you turn on your power (may have to toggle the power button behind your computer before pressing the button, worth trying in each position just in case) and your computer doesn't come on at all. This means that if none of your lights come on AND none of your fans come on, then your power supply may have blown out in the surge. If this is the case then you can't even begin to try and diagnose the rest of your PC to see if it's working. You need power to attempt diagnostics on your other components. Even if you replace the power supply, there is no guarantee that it was the only thing that was ruined by the surge. I hope this helps you out derick, and wish you better luck in the future :(
So only fan is running, the compressor not running okay check the voltage going to the compressor. The connection is coming from Thermostat or temperature controller, if there is supply going to A/c Comp. check the safety thermostat relay above the compressor.
Most of the time you'll never hear the CPU fan. If you don't hear the normal fan sounds coming from your computer, it is most likely the power supply cooling fan. Hold you hand at the back of the computer where the power chord plugs in, while the computer is running, and test if you feel air blowing on your hand. If you don't, then replace your power supply. Make sure, when checking for a new PS that you get the correct pin count. Best to order from Dell since proprietary systems usually use proprietary parts and a generic PS won't fit in the opening at the back of the computer (alignment of the plug and the fan with the opening, etc.)
Hi. NO, *********** board is not fried. I am not sure what the problem is but I do know how to fix it. It is usually casued by power outages (even if you have UPS supply).
1. TAKE OUT THE ELECTRICITY LEAD TO THE COMPUTER. Look inside the computer and find the bunch of wires coming from the power supply unit (the box thing at the top with the fan and all those colouted wires!).
2. Find where these wires run into a plastic connector and plug into the mother board. Unplug it.
3. Now plug the electicity lead back into the computer. The light should now stay ON.
4. Plug in the connector again... and boot up. Leave it run a while to convince it!
5. Repeat this process if it does not work first time.
This should fix your problem . It works for me when I get this problem.
pull the battery out of you motherboard it will reset your bios leave the battery out for a couple minutes then when you put it back in boot up and it should go into bios use your arrows to select set defaults hit enter then reboot it should boot up then if not its possible you have a hard drive issue.
power supply is probably shot and you are feeding a voltage way over what is needed. I have a dell that refused to operate one day. I went to www dot affordablesurplus dot com and found a 350 watt power supply with all the RIGHT plugs. Never had a problem since.
