Computers often prevent themselves from turning on if there is a loose component somewhere within the case. Try the following:

  1. Make sure any cards (network/video/sound/etc) are securely seated in their slots. You may want to remove and reinsert them into their slots just to be certain.
  2. Completely unplug each hard drive and cd drive. Remove the cable from the drive and from the motherboard where appropriate. Re-insert all of the cables. Pay attention to the orientation of the IDE cables if your drives use those, and they probably do. It matters. Plug them in exactly as they came out.
  3. Try turning your computer on. If this works, rejoice, otherwise:
  4. Remove the ram from the machine and reinsert it back into the slots. Try powering it on again.
This should work, especially since your computer was just moved.

So, your computer is not running, is that correct? do you get any lights on the desktop front panel? did you check the power supply for the proper rating on the switch?

Hello people so i have this computer case from dubai and now i am in canada. So the cords power is 250v and the CPU voltage is 110/220v should i put the chord directly into to the CPU and use a Canadian...

You can change the power supply, the whole box and wiring. The pc runs on 12 volts mostly on the board and it is dc. Realize the wall sockets are ac, it has to be rectified anyway. I don't think I would try direct since 250v is considerably higher than the 220v that it could handle, I think it would work but, don't think it would last long before burning out the power supply and cause you to replace it anyway.

From your description I would say they hard drive is failing and would suggest that you buy a new one and transfer all your data over to it or go to a pc place and have them do it.

I turned off the Dell Dimension e520 before a storm. I have tried numerous times to turn it back on, only to have a yellow flashing light. How can I get my computer to turn on?

Good day.

Here's my point of view of you problem. I have also experienced the same problem since it is always raining here in the Philippines. I just have to ask a few questions before i can give a direct solution to you.
Please provide the following:
1. Do you have a voltage regulator in your computer set. 2. Do you hear a beeping sound everytime you turn your computer on after the incident happened? 3. Does the processor fan still runs after turning your PC on or not? 4. Kindly provide your computer specs.
Good day and should you have any questions regarding the questions, feel free to approach us.

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.

Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

Cpu doesnt work

Dear Zalrashdi20,
When you say that the CPU doesn't work, what happens exactly? Does it not power on OR There are beep sounds heard OR there is an error on screen that you would like to share? OR ...

Assuming that the machine is not powering on at all .. here are few checks that you would like to perform...
  1. There is a toggle switch (Voltage selector) at the back of the computer on the power supply unit, just besides where you connect the power cable .. make sure that appropriate voltage is selected.
  2. Try connecting the computer to a different wall socket.
  3. If computer is connected through the Surge protector or UPS then try connecting it directly to the wall socket.
  4. Try using a spare power cable if available.
  5. Remove all other connections apart from Power supply, keyboard, mouse and monitor and see if that makes any difference.
  6. Remove the power supply cord from the back of the computer and press and hold the power button for few seconds .. this would drain the accumulated power from the CPU components .. now reconnect the power supply and see if that makes any difference..
  7. Open the chassis and see that couple of wires run from behind the power button on the CPU to the big circuit board (Motherboard) .. make sure that the wires are properly secured.
Perform these basic checks and let me know and I would glad to assist you further.

My computer just turns off

"Error Smart" is malware and will slowly wreck the OS, you must un-install this programme from your computer and perform a registry clean, then, right click on "my computer" select "computer managment" and "event viewer" check the "system" log to find out what has caused the crash.
What you describe sounds like overheating, so take the side panel off the computer and clean the dust from the CPU fan and from inside the case itself, please make sure you have the power disconnected from the back of the machine before you remove the side panel and make sure you "ground" yourself (keep one hand on the metal case)
